PER FUMUM: sacred resins as smoke

Crypt

The word perfume originates from the Latin Per Fumum, meaning though the smoke,  which clearly illuminates the sacred origins of our relationship with scent. The burning of sacred resins and woods as incense is a practice old as humanity and revered by all cultures.

Crypt is an evocative, nearly mystical scent, created with a rich selection of the very same resins sacred to our ancestors: Frankincense, Benzoin, Myrrh & Labdanum. Frankincense (also known as Olibanum) is the protagonist, richly present in three different forms: resinoid, absolute and distilled oil. The resinoid has followed a complex process of pyrogenation at high temperature for a long period of time, becoming a wonderful, complex and smoky material which is much closer in scent to the actual experience of burning the resin over incandescent coals. The smoky facets are accentuated with just the right amount of Cade Juniper oil, an intensely dark, slightly leathery material.

Balsamic resins are dense, sticky materials, and it is very important to create sufficient space in the formula for them to breathe. Virginian cedarwood and other transparent, woody and sparkly ingredients create this space as the echoing halls in which the resins smoke can develop and expand.

This scent in all its versions is vegan.

    Crypt is a deeply comforting scent to me. It smells exactly like a church, which reminds me of visiting churches as a kid in France during the summer holidays. I don’t wear it often, as I really need to be in the mood for it, but I feel calm and comforted when I do.
