Of burning rafts and steaming steamers
As so often, Huck heard loud shouting as he strolled relaxed along the hedge. Today the report cards had been handed out, and ahead of him his friend Tom slipped through a gap in the bushes, pursued by Aunt Polly's scolding voice. From the church came loud voices and soft swathes, and so they turned the other way and ran together toward the river. They bent aside the dry branches of the juniper, and pushed the raft into the water. Tart cedar floated, and the two leaped upon the tied trunks, to push off at once from the bank, and follow the current - after the adventure. Pulled along by the sluggish drift, they had a moment's peace. As the thin wisp of consecrated smoke wafted out of the little town onto the river, the noonday sun heated the raft as well. The snot-streaked topside was dry as dust, and even the tarred ropes that connected the thin logs were beginning to secrete their own haze. Tom and Huck dangled their feet in the water, waving to a slow steamer that nevertheless passed steadily by them, and had the smoke of its chimney in their nostrils. To add to this beautiful melange, Tom drew from his pocket a small envelope-"Tabaco aromatizado con Cascarille"-which he had previously swiped from Jim, in a rare moment of inattention. The two boys were rolling two fags, and puffing the aromatic smoke out on the water, when Huck dropped the Seine, and the straw covering the dry wood of the raft caught fire. Drifting along the bank, they clung to one of the swamp cypresses. They were rare here, and actually native farther south. They pulled themselves to the shore, and put out the smoldering. The cedar was already a bit scorched, too, and they tied the raft down to retrieve it later. On their way upstream, past beautiful withered pines, they heard the scent of burning incense. The last descendants of the Sioux, or just some kids indulging in a few pennies at the crazy old man's market? They paused for a moment, but already heard the first voices echoing out of St. Petersburg, and merrily made their way home, where at least Tom got to pick up his well-deserved spanking...

Thanks to Medianus. A great fragrance, monotonously smoky, yet constantly changing in nature. Multifaceted and exciting, smoke in its most beautiful form.

Singular
This is one of the fragrances that I would personally call a masterpiece. There is nothing else like it. A high quality niche that is worth its price tag in my opinion. It is unisex but I would see as the signature of a complex and somewhat artistic man. The smell of a North American West Coast forest layered with a good dose of smoke, not the camp fire type. When I pass by Nordstrom, I spray it on a paper strip and keep in in my coat pocket. This is love.

Dreamwalking you dive through the ritual smoke
Are you trying to open your eyes right now? Sparks of fire fly in orbits like glowing shooting stars of a shaman along your nocturnal cloud vault, like wild smoke swirling in an illuminated glass full of colorful death masks. The psychedelic images of the scorching swamp are lambent flickering of fire, shrill chirping as dazzling bells on trance-like dancing feet hallucinating and twitching hands handling woods with smoking resins. It doesn't matter if you're on the Mississippi, in a tent of skin, a cabin of wood, by the wide river. It doesn't matter if you open your eyes or not.
Dreamwalking you dive through the smoke, overwhelmed by the differentiation of its fragrances, its colours, its textures. Warm, spicy incense, light resinous, woody and yet slightly citric, sometimes brown-balsamic, then sandy and brittle. Then spicy cedars like mist from pine trees, cool and turquoise marble the colors of the smoke. Wood-fibrous green, the smoke of the juniper glows on a canvas of leather a pattern like batik in the bluish haze of birch tar tobacco.
Could you see a hand in front of your eyes? Did she give you spurge, the hull crust? It has the aroma of bitt'rem Campari, the taste of dark tobaccos, the smell of Gawith's. She's medicine from the neotropis and she's drug besides. In the five to six hours in which you give yourself to her, the mist will clear, the smoke dryer and brighter, you will sift fresh spicy woods more and more, the incense will condense to light brown ashes.
Memories of Ex Voto, the hippie. Does Viennese blood flow in the Mississippi?

(With thanks to Morgaina)

La Fille et Aiguille's dark and mysterious cousin. Imagine La Fille's warm chutney spices replaced with cool slightly medicinal herb notes.

Dark tarry wood, initially with significant medicinal herbal accent, then enjoyable dry-smoky.
