    Supernatural Future as an inspiration for me, took shape in creating a “new world” wine inspired perfume. It highlights the aspects about New Zealand’s terrior that are futuristic and under development. What does that mean, exactly? Simply put, New Zealand is a New World territory for culinary treasures- namely wine and truffles. The terroir is a chrysalis; ripe with possibility and evolution. Upon research for this perfume, I found that Truffle spores didn’t even reach New Zealand until 1987 and vineyard cultivation was just barely preceding by about a decade. As a perfume, it was only natural for me to pair the decadence of Truffle with full bodied wine notes. The end result? A verdant, dark fruit fragrance laden with brambly vineyard roses, truffle, roots, moss, mineral rich soil, sea brine and ambergris.

    Ingredient Focus: 

    Coriander (Coriandrum sativum)

    Provenance:

    St. Petersburg, Russia

    Notes:

    Bergamot, Clary Sage, Black Hemlock, Vodka, Coriander, Cardamom, Russian Rose, Orris, Labdanum, Tobacco, Leather, Musks


    This scent evokes sensory impressions of Russian Coriander and Rose, dense forests of fir and spruce, warming spirits of cognac and vodka, the wearing of fur to brace against the cold and, of course, references to Russian Leather—at once ethereal, earth-bound, celebratory, and sensuous; a perfect complement to all that December holds!

    In the space between summer and winter, a robust burst of pennyroyal and fresh cut trees start out as an autumnal offertory. As the fragrance develops, it takes the wearer on a fantastical journey through the woods with an exotic bouquet dry-down. It is a time machine, leading its wearer through the season to an unforgettable display of the complex beauty of Earth.
