Viride comes from Latin meaning ‘green’.
Coniferous, cutting and bracingly clean, Viride is initially as lean, mean and green as can be. But when this potent verdancy hits skin, a strangely warm, wonderful transformation takes place. Viride’s needle-sharps edge into a mossy, woodsy softness that’s infused with traces of a living, moving, sweating being. Our initial impression of Viride as primarily botanical is upended as it’s leaves and stems grow into a muscular, hot blooded thing that reeks of mammal. Perhaps the most recognizably spicy animalic scent of this collection, Viride reveals itself to be a scent of intense, unabashed virility.
