Part of the Odyssey Collection: Chapter II Liberation
Delving deeper into the origins of perfumes, and the self, the Odyssey unfolds with Liberation. A two-part collection featuring Material and Boundless, this chapter represents the desire to return to oneself and find therein the keys to the essential. An awakening to the novelty of existence, this power-duo takes the sensual sweetness of vanilla and the ethereal power of frankincense and turns it into something much more visceral and primeval.
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.
