WHITE FLOWERS IN THE DARK
| THE SOJOURN |
Limited Edition Micro Batch #2 / Winter 2022-23
Delicate petals transparent as the light of the moon radiates through the black of the longest night. Veins illuminated and vulnerability revealed, the intoxicating fragrance of timeless white flowers blooms in a gesture of hope. Euphoric nectar soothes.
An aromatic elixir of precious white flowers that boast legendary influences. Aphrodisiac, antidepressant, spiritual. These flowers have graced offerings to deities, gifts to beloveds, and bouquets for weddings and sacred celebrations. Their heady fragrant blossoms elicit strong responses and are some of the most revered perfume notes in history. This is the kind of perfume that ties the past, present, and future with olfactory ribbons.
These florals are real plant essences - meaning you get all the facets of them they are not sanitized into separate molecules; there are nuances of citrus, floral, honey, pollen, indole, sweet, juicy, resinous ... the complexity you would smell from the flowers in real life.

Orange Blossom absolute
Jasmine (grandiflorum + sambac)
With the long nights upon us, we look for the balance of light and dark to move us through the muck. Acknowledging contrast gives beauty, depth, and growth.
As the saying goes, "no mud, no lotus".
The ultimate climax of sublime white flowers anoints the time when the sun and the moon make peace. When luminous hope shines through, like full moonlight in a clear sky.
This perfume is both comforting and seductive, caressing the senses in a way that only white florals can do. It is sweet, sultry, and truly beautiful, focused mostly on the heart notes in order to let these white florals really sing, uninterrupted.
It contains an absurd amount of these precious and extremely expensive flower absolutes - allowing their authentic scent to be the central experience.
100% Natural Botanical Artisanal Fragrance by GATHER perfume
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.
