Earth - Roots
"Brisk breezing through dry grass.

“Stay a while, stranger.”
This smoky, leathery, mossy root blend irrevocably grounds us into the here-and-now. It can be used alone or as a base for another perfume. In this compelling blend, the undulating lichens of the oak tree & the earthy roots of the vetiver grass marry, blessed by smoky whiffs of tobacco & hay.
