Lignum Vitae (Tree of Life)

A nautical flavor you've never experienced. Lignum Vitae (inspired by the remarkably dense wood indigenous to the Caribbean and South America) is sweet, spicy, saline and ever-evolving. This rare material was a foundational element of the first truly accurate marine chronometers; as a scent, Lignum Vitae uniquely tells the story of time. Initially it's a shimmering, beachy gourmand; black pepper and ginger (nestled within madeleine cake draped in caramel) reflect luminous lemon and lime. Juniper enriches sea spray, creating a refreshing, sea breeze effect that balances out some of the preliminary sparkling sweetness. Guaiac wood pulses, its dry heat (offset by the soil rich cool of vetiver) supplying a sturdy, constant spice. Amber offers a cool, dusty cleavage to which remnants of top and heart notes cling, while frankincense hangs above this cliff-like arrangement, a mist of sea evaporating in the heat of sunshine. Hot sand allows this scent to stick (pleasingly) on skin, while moss, salt, vanilla and musk adapt the preceding notes into an epidermal seascape. Lignum Vitae brought an end to unpredictable sea voyage. This delectable, inventive scent is transporting and adventurous, and eternally 'on time'.
