SHAKTI

| The Tribal Calling |

The drums are calling us in to gather. The night is rich with possibility. The women's voices have begun, and the fire billows to the stars. Spiced skin dances wild and in her animal nature the creative muse is unleashed. Life force coils through the circle as the crackling sparks scent the air like ancient kyphi and the trees' silhouettes come to life. The old ways burn with the cedar and the new ways peel open like a fresh, juicy mandarin.

Style: spiced floral amber chypre

The Personal, The Process, The Gathered

Of the commercial perfumes I once loved, Obsession was one. A perfume that nearly suffocates me now when I smell it in public places, or on ladies in a restaurant, it once was a wildly sexy fragrance hard to resist. Although that perfume wasn't on my mind when I created Shakti, I was most definitely in a place of creative up-rise, a similar state of mind that I was in when I was a younger, wilder me wearing Obsession.

The energy of the sultry, restless, creative diva is redolent in Shakti - her spices and woods drumming, conjuring, manifesting, celebrating. This is the perfume I wear when I am really feeling my prowess. It is one of the first full perfumes I composed, and it stands strong as a best seller to this day.

Shakti features artisan vanilla extract and amber accords blended from scratch.

A NOTE FROM THE PERFUMER

** Due to the fact that I - Gather perfume - use exclusively 100% natural materials, batch variance is to be expected. This is the same in any luxury, handcrafted art medium ( such as dance and opera) and agriculturally dependent arts such as viticulture, honey, or microbrewery. Gather perfumes are often limited editions for this reason, as well as the fact that some materials can only be obtained for small windows of time or no longer available at all. If you prefer uniformity in your fragrances, you may want to consider a more commercially available or mixed media brand. 

With Love,
Ananda

Dark. Raw. Primal.

Words escape me trying to describe this scent. It's impossible for me to break this down note by note, as each beautiful one raises its voice it becomes a choir, a symphony. I choose mostly dark and mysterious perfumes year round, this one defies classification. When I wear this my spirit feels free to roam, like a Gypsy that never sits still. My spirit thrives, like a flower in the sun. My spirit bursts with gratitude to Mother earth for the gifts she has given us. And for Ananda, the Master that brings them together, making the whole much greater than the sum of its parts.

Please don't stop making Shakti!

I am obsessed w/ this perfume! Now I own 3 bottles! I had to come back to get more. It is so amazing. Calvin Klein made Obsession but Shakti causes Obsession! This is sooo much better than Obsession, a 1000 times better! It is so sexy, daring, alluring, yet the woman who wears it is totally approachable and comfortable to be around. My husband loves this on me and can't get enough. Ananda thank you for creating it!

Sweet Spice of a fall campfire

OMG! I love this fragrance! I just received my samples and this one and Rainwater Rose stood out for me. This one is projects and has lasting power. I can see myself wearing this one a lot. There is a smoky quality to this fragrance but it is never overpowering, the smoke is in the distance. So many smoke fragrances are to heavy. This one is spicy, sweet, earthy, smoky, floral, woody and fruity. How Ananda gets all of these qualities in 1 perfume w/out it smelling overwhelming for like to much is amazing!

Warm, Sweet, Spicy

I experience Shakti as a warm, sweet, anise-like aroma that cheers my soul on a blustery cold day. I love the spicy edge amidst the sweeter notes. This is a daily fragrance for me.
