AER COLLECTION ONE.
Four unique, enchanting, deep perfumes.
AER Accord No. 01:
A bold, exotic scent that begins strong with powerful hits of spicy Nagarmotha, Vetiver and Patchouli, underlined by a luxurious Olibanum, Atlas Cedar and Palmarosa foundation.
Nagarmotha (Cyperus scariosus) is a riverbank grass native to India. In Chinese medicine, Nagarmotha is said to regulate Qi, the life energy. The plant's roots, once dried, give off an exotic wood scent with a distinct spicy note. Our Nagarmotha is hand-harvested in the springtime from plants growing wild in Madhya Pradesh, India.
AER Accord No. 02:
A smokey, mysterious scent that starts strong with Cade, green notes from Weymouth Pine and exotic Himalayan Fir, then gives way to the heady sweetness of Guaiac Wood, Galbanum and Vetyver.
Cade is a dark, aromatic distillate from the rough bark of the Prickly Juniper (Juniperus oxycedrus) tree, the oldest conifer tree species still existing. Ancient cultures believed Juniper had the power to chase away evil spirits and bring luck and love. Cade has a wonderful smokey scent reminiscent of campfires. Our cade is harvested from the forests of Northern Spain.
AER Accord No. 03:
An elegant, beguiling scent blending the amber sweetness of Amyris and Balsam of Peru, powdery musk from Musk Seeds, otherworldly floral notes of Geranium Leaf and Osmanthus Flower, all bound together by Niaouli Leaf.
Ambre refers to the hardened sticky resin of a tree. We have used Balsam of Peru wild-harvested from the Myroxylon tree in El Salvador which gives a seductive sweet vanilla/balsamic note; Elemi, the resin of the Amyris tree which is wild-harvested from forests in Haiti and which imparts pepper, fennel and lemon notes; and creamy-sweet Styrax from the dense forests of the Olancho Mountains in Honduras.
AER Accord No. 04:
A fresh, creative scent that fuses aromatic sweet wood notes of Virgina Cedar and Indian Sandalwood layered with a citrusy Bergamot, French Lavender compliment and the spiciness of Ginger and Pink Peppercorns.
Virginia Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) is an evergreen that grows throughout Eastern North America. The sapwood of this majestic tree is distilled into a fresh, green-scented absolute with the distinct smell of pencils. Our Virginia Cedar absolute is made from off-cut sawdust and shavings from woodmills in the United States.
