this is how mother Earth smells like
Gaea is the smell of mother Earth. It hits you first with the smell of soil, some greenery and herbaceous lavender. It takes you to apple cellar, slightly damp, slightly moldy, you smell the apple skins. It ends with sweet super realistic honey. I think this is a masterpiece. Not for everyone. I love it.

Balance is everything
If I describe what it smells like based on notes, it would happen like when I have read them first and then I have smelled the fragrance: it is not what you expect.
At first it does not seem as sweet as it ends up being with the passage of minutes. By this I do not mean that it is a typical sweet smell, because it really smells of damp earth with tuberose, maybe apple would say and ... honey.
It gives a sensation of freshness for that smell of humid earth and a certain greenness, I would even say a weak balsamic because of the honey.
It is worth trying this perfume so well constructed by layers.
I would say that for people accustomed to being different it can be versatile in terms of possible uses, it is not a prohibitive sweet for summer and heat, a certain fresh green hue for a hot night seems interesting to me.
Apparently it is of a power commensurate with its price level and positioning in a context of niche perfumes.
I would say that there are not so many perfumes as well balanced as this: good performance in duration, powerful 2-3h projection, sweet but not too much, fresh but not cold, totally unisex and mysterious ... and to top it off, superbly presented in a bottle precious to collect.

Listen to Gaea
While the red bottle stood for the fire and for fragrances (especially of great cultures) the past, the white bottle is a symbol of the present. In this part of the collection, Peter deals with topics that are close to his heart, that are current or have been on his mind for a long time.

Here, white stands for our industrialization and the penetration of technology into every corner of our lives, combined with a functional, aesthetic disillusionment. A lot of things are white or black because they - supposedly - fit better together. Uniformity of a society that never longed for definition and individuality more than today.

And in this whirlpool of possession and decay, man has overlooked for decades how much he hurts Mother Earth - Gaia or Gaea - in this process. Yeah, bleeding her out. And it is the concrete of the big cities, greenhouse gases and exhaust fumes, the copping down of the rainforest, the melting of the poles, the loss of fertility of our soils and the death of the bees that Peter processes in his this, white, fragrance.

He draws a portrait of the healthy mother earth, where we are surrounded by the lush, harsh green of the rainforest. The wet topsoil, bursting with life, under our bare feet. Flowers blossom, offer bees a home and food.

Beautiful and almost a little melancholic, sad.

Gaea should be shaking us up. Not only because it is a wonderful fragrance, which should not just be a time capsule, with which our children will remember how the earth in all its beauty really smelled before we destroyed it. This scent should - not only when worn - lead the children of Gaea back to a better way.

Just small steps. Everyone. Would be a start.

Listen to Gaea!
