Material is a paradox - through materiality, it evokes immateriality, teaching us to look beyond appearances and that what matters is often unseen; an experience akin to standing in a grove and descrying in the sweltering shade a multitude of textures and manifold hues of wood, leaf and bark; all coming together into one.
"Material is all about Vanilla Absolute, one of the most emblematic natural substances used in perfumery. In this fragrance, the star ingredient possesses a dual personality, presenting both a comforting side and a leathery, animalic facet; constantly shifting between innocence and wildness." - Cecile Zarokian, Perfumer
