Winter + Winter Nights by Dasein Fragrance have returned for the winter/holiday 2017 season. Two of Twisted Lily's best selling fragrances of 2016, Winter + Winter Nights have been produced in a limited run so be sure to get your hands on them before this duo heads back into hibernation.
WINTER: Caramelized, herbal wafts envelop body and mind and lull(a-bye) us into the decline; of the days, the light, the year. Grim though this may sound, never has the coldest season been so inviting as in Winter by Dasein. Those nights in, cooking rich seasonals while the kitchen windows fog…crisp star-sparkled midnight walks where the air is sharp, invigorating…the sweet, florid warmth of hot drinks steaming us calm, from the inside out. The solace found in the pause, when everything lies quiet, bones bared. With blue spruce, black cardamom, forest pine and an especially lush french lavender, Winter is wearable therapy: a reminder, in it's simplicity, that an end is only the beginning of some new magic.
WINTER NIGHTS: Pull that Pendleton tighter round your shoulders and snuggle into the side of a loved one, as you listen to guitar strings under the stars, or simply, the soft, lapping waves. Lit by the warm orange glow of a beach bonfire, Winter Nights crackles and snaps sweetly. A cool breeze blows through pines and cypress, stirring tiny fingers of piquant, bittersweet green into a kind of high, gentle song, as pure a child’s voice. As the music of the forest rolls out towards the liquid symphony of the sea, the sumptuous warmth of dry, sparkly fire sneaks quietly into our blankets and clothes and nestles there, a smoldering signature that will stay with us for days to come.
Cardamom tea’s cool hot spice seeps sweetly out from a loosely screwed thermos, and mingles with the comforting heat of burning driftwood. A palo santo-like mintiness emerges for a moment, but we quickly realize that what we’re smelling, somehow, is the sweet, dusty cool of lavender flowers, as if the intoxicating pleasure of this wintry setting has lulled us into hibernation and we’ve awoken in another season, like Dorothy rediscovered, only in a field of purple. A perfect balance of spice, sweet and smoke, Winter Nights will convert even the skeptics that perfume perfection can be achieved with a few select, natural effects. Make this your cozy constant. Created as a collaboration between Dasein's nose Sam Rader and fellow indie perfumer Josh Meyer of Imaginary Authors.
Limited offering of duo set for the exclusive price of $240 (regularly $250) ends Sept. 30th.
