As refreshing and crisp as that first, true dawning of spring, Spring evokes renewal and an insurgent, exciting sense of promise. Like a gentle breeze, vetiver introduces the rich, spicy smell carrying the scent of thawed earth, still wet and rich with potential, that is only just beginning to peek through.
Violet adds a beautiful grit to this earthy opening, as piercing as the the sharply pointed tips of rising bulb buds. Violet imparts a slight animalism, like the metallic, savory-sweet spice of hyacinths. Sandalwood echoes this feral electricity, it’s concentrated green, woodsy energy vibrating outwards like the twang of a freshly tuned guitar. Rose is a softening note, which stills and synthesizes these vibrant, bright notes with it’s soapy, satin effect. Yuzu is a cloudy shade of luminous, like sun piercing altostratus cloud configuration. Black pepper permeates the whole of this composition, it’s soft spice creating a pixilated, dappled texture throughout this fragrance.
A joyous, yet understated, piquant evocation of seasonal rebirth. Prepare to be sprung. All dasein scents are paraben, glycol and cruelty free, small batch, hand blended in the hills of Glassell Park.
Update June 2107: Farewell to Dasein’s Spring & Summer… just a few bottles remain of these two cult favorites… never to be produced again!
