A woody – spicy Extrait de Parfum by Alexandra Monet.
Dense woodland, endlessly green, damp wood scent; tired from the heat, he arrives in a smoky clearing: the Ayahuasca’s ritual is starting. His vision was blurred by the dense smoke; a shaman face is outlined in front of him and immediately disappears. His eyes got closed… Later he will tell that it is that initiation that revealed to him the secret of Santo Incienso, Sillage Sacré.
The woody and spicy notes of Santo Incienso dive you into the wild and mystic world of Amazonia. A spiritual composition imagined by Alexandra Monet like a perfect portrait of the soul’s journey, with a particular touch: the Palo Santo. Used by the Incas and the Shamans as incense during religious rituals, it is well-known to warding off evil spirits. It is a “soul tree revealed when burnt » sings the Peruvian singer Olga Milla.
The Palo Santo underlines the splendour of this perfume in its heart notes.
Santo Incienso is a unique fragrance and a mystical composition that captivates, just like the shaman’s poem.
Sacred wood from Amazonia, the Palo Santo is used in numerous healing and afterlife communication rituals. It is during a trip to South America that the perfumer, Alexandra Monet, fell in love at first sight with this wood. Unsatisfied by the perfumery ingredient that was extracted from it, she re-created it thanks to a specific combination, out of respect for the plant and for its fragrance.
Without a doubt among the most ancestral raw material of perfumery, Incense and Myrrh fit perfectly. The Frankincense - real incense - releases spicy and mineral notes, while Myrrh delivers suave and warm notes, almost liquorish, which brings an Oriental touch to perfumes.
Wood, for sure, but a creamy and sensual one. The Cedar wood can also recall a pencil lead, fresh and slightly regressive. A blond and resinous wood, with a strong personality.
