Longevity

Fragrance becomes subtle and soft at the 5-hour mark.

0-10 minutes:

The lime strikes with hints of animalistic vanilla. Light camphor, berries, and jam. Palo Santo is such a complicated scent. This is the pure resin blended in rice bran and jojoba.

It is both a vacation to the water and a lovers picnic, or something just between the two. It begins sharp and soft.

Warm sands overtake the scent a short while in, but they never fully let go of the wildlife just over the bend.

10-20 minutes:

It softens, with hints of amber moving through. Caramel wafts over as you hear waves in the distance.

20-40 minutes:

The woody nature emerges, resinous, a library filled with books. Still familiar, yet also ancient.

Final Thoughts:

This fragrance lasts 4-5 hours, use the time of re-application as a moment of reflection and pause. This is a meditative scent, it is for both balance and refreshment.
