Like fingertips trailing across a lake surface, Altramental triggers ripples, shivers, movement. Black pepper veils bergamot’s euphoric countenance, and a similar hide and seek routine is repeated between cardamom and cistus, like fishes flitting through the cover of water weeds. When aquatic notes loosen the bonds between these interlaced notes each element, individually distinct, washes ashore. The four castaways awake on a beach of suede, pebbled with saffron-studded resins, swathed in a mist of musk. Altramental is a scent expression of ‘still waters run deep’; what begins as an aquatic, peaceful floral ends as an exploration of the darker, residual aspects--what lies beneath.
