From crackling sap to balmy resin. Smoky wood to sun-seared stone. Purple dusk to ink-black night. Grenadille d'Afrique explores the age-old landscape of Africa in a tribute to ancient ebony.
Run through from twigs to roots with aromatic, juniper-scented sap, the scent is built around a "trunk" of Haitian vetiver. With its complex facets of wood, smoke, earth and flint, it is the vertical axis that draws together the fragrance's vegetal, animal and mineral notes. Turned into combustible resin by a lash of ambery cistus labdanum, vanilla exudes its balsamic warmth. Bleached wood, skin-soft bark and sun heated stone release the day's heat into the ink-black night, cooled off by a breeze of musk.
