Simplexity is a word used by AbdesSalaam to describe some of his scents and I too would use the word -
Holy Water , for instance . Ethereal , damp , cool , yet in no way aquatic , Holy Water is dominated by frankincense to my nose . It lasted for hours , like wisps of mist following me as I went about my day .
Opening on a lush round neroli , amazing how it amps up the fruity nuances in the incense . There is an odd dirtiness to this that fascinates and keeps me sniffing . Once the neroli settles , there is a tug-of-war between the good ( innocent orange blossom ) and the evil ( dark dirty frankincense ) and I'm not sure who wins.....
neroli , orange blossom , rose , sandalwood , frankincense
