My first perception of "Palo Santo" is: Oh, fine - warm milk with honey and rum!
I have only known that the sweetness of the tonka bean together with Davana replaces the flavoured honey in this fragrance since I knew the pyramid.
Here I feel an almost elementary feeling of well-being: it is not so much the memory of my childhood as the joy of warming my hands on a cup of warm, spiced milk on cold evenings and inhaling the protective scent.
That, if available, a drop of poppy seed syrup guarantees a good night's sleep is added.
Only after the consumption of milk this scent composition will be decorated with precious wood aromas:
Guaiac wood - a tropical very hard and resin-rich wood species - enriches the existing tasteful milkshake with a strong, but very likeable resin note.
Somehow it goes perfectly with the dark, honey-brown rum; these two fragrances complement each other excellently.
Cedar wood, a basic fragrance ingredient that is becoming more and more popular for me, combines harmoniously with the previous fragrance process.
"Of course, "silky-silvery" is not a fragrance, but with cedar wood I always feel the silky, like polished wood under my hands.
If all my senses are touched by a fragrance work of art, this is a very good sign for me; I feel comfortable with the being on my skin!
Amyrisholz, a family member of the sandalwood that I appreciate so much, completes an appealing round dance; all the fine ingredients now dance in unison.
In "Palo Santo", the finale begins with the addition of vetiver: flavoured milk with rum, aromatic woods and the earthy, dark green heaviness of vetiver - that's got something!
It is an extremely endearing, albeit somewhat unusual creation, which presents itself here.
"Palo Santo" is for me a companion for the quieter hours, which promise leisure with a good book and beautiful music.
Even on grey rainy days like today, it is a blessing; even if the first spring is already lightly peeping through the rain air: outside it is simply unfriendly!
A certain "holiness" of trees and wood is a matter of course for me; how much experience of decades and even centuries is in these creatures of nature.
Some of this serenity and perhaps also wisdom is transferred to me; this is always very welcome.
Those who open their senses to "Palo Santo" will certainly not be disappointed. Unless it's a "milk grubby." He should avoid this scent from the beginning: it will be nothing!
But otherwise: warm milk with a lot of aroma - that is pure well-being!
