Mother Earth's scent
If the Great Mother Earth had a scent, surely it could be this one. It's a true herbs elixir with a fortified texture and a strong and very earthy sillage. Born in the revolutionary 70es, it seems to be an invitation to a more natural and simpler lifestyle. However, its strong sillage made this scent not so "flower power", but very ladylike, although its hidden wildness. There aren't half measures with this freagrance: you love it or it isn't at all your cup of tea.
In my memories, this scent is linked to my aunt : she usually didn't wear any makeup and didn't love too heavy fragrance, but this one, oddly, was its signature fragrance .
The first time I tested on my skin this scent I didn't like it.: too earthy and "dirty" for my Young tastes.
Nowadays I like it so much mainly in the colder season , to me it could be the perfect fall scent.
The chamomile notes and the aromatic bouquet , made of many herb, is noticeable and strong, giving a very particular character to this scent, maybe the only one in the perfumery panorama. But the main actor of this composition is the patchouli: deep, strong, bitter, almost masculine, wild, very earthy and fortified. It gives to this scent all the characteristics of a herb extract.
This powerful "natural bpomb" is contained in a very simple and minimal bottle .
Aromatics elixir is a great classic of the contemporary perfumery and, to me, a must have for evry collector.
It seems to suggest (paraphrasing the famous hippies' words) : "Put herbs in your cannons!"

Complexity, depth, idea, a multitude of ingredients that have a well-written score and play a symphony on virtuoso instruments.

Intense, earthy, fortified: it's the Mother earth's scent. Noticeable herbal notes with a generous patchouli dose. Very strong sillage.
