Designed to engage the root chakra, Le Quatrième pays homage to our ancient connection with the earth. Known as the Muladhara in Sanskrit, the root chakra constitutes the border between our animal and human consciousness. Like the sturdy roots of a tree, this chakra (our most physical energy center) is the stem of life, the smoldering origin of sexuality. Located at the southern-most tip of the spine, Muladhara is also the chakra of scent, our most primal sense. Rum is a soft, smooth introduction to this dense, smoky-sweet scent. Tobacco is a slightly more obtrusive texture, a green, sweet, ripe facet. Myrrh is remarkably bright, a golden curlicue of smoke spiraling heavenwards. Indonesian patchouli marries the rich verdancy of tobacco and the searing smoke of myrrh, marrying both effects in one note. Peru balm is aromatic, a resinous, herbal segue into the bittersweet viscous flow of honey. Vanilla subtly underscores the more strikingly textured aspects of this scent, throwing their starker shape into relief against it’s creamy, satin expanse. Plum is a final, savory-sweet flourish, a deeply tangy note that instill energy, even at the tail-end of this fragrance. Le Quatrième focuses the root chakra, resulting in a balance between the sensual and instinctual, personal magnetism and personal control. Grounding, exotic, lush and passionate: with the energy of the earth surging through your body, you hold the key to your desires.
