STONES is an elemental scent that is inspired by the passage of stones and boulders through time & space. The weight of stones is expressed by a solid hefty core of vetiver, and elaborated on with a salty sense of green whimsy - galbanum, geranium, tomato leaf. Earthy spicy notes (ivy, pine, moss) convey sculptural movement while wet notes (lotus, nightshade, muguet) express ancient wet boulders & misty forest moss.
