Warm yet cool, Densa reverberates against skin like a drum beat, resurfacing our surface and interior simultaneously. Melancholic yet rejuvenating Densa is decay and renewal, a provocative study of (the emotional impact of) change. Vetiver is a sheer overlay as well as core ingredient in Densa: initially shimmering and subtly sweet, vetiver blooms into a heartier substance, verdant and dirty and bold, a pungent, thrusty energy. Reinforcing vetiver is searing sandalwood, luminous as ever: in Densa, sandalwood registers as a beam of cool colored sunlight shot through a thick canopy of leaves, a persistent if sharp and slivered elixir.
Botanical musks furnish this scent with a pillowy density, with faint traces of aromatics and bittersweet flowers. Palo santo’s milky, minty smoke makes Densa smolder as if disintegrating, fallen leaves suddenly and enthusiastically decided to self-immolate. A dew accord douses palo santo’s fires, and this results in an pleasantly acrid tang. Densa is a long lasting, subtle yet pervasive woodland wonder that lends a haunting, entrancing echo to our footsteps. As we wander through our day to day to day, we feel both focused and unsettled by this mysterious scent.
