PETAL FETISH

| A SULTRY SUMMER SURRENDER |

A story upon the skin
of roses lingering last
in the hot hour of an August afternoon
as the fields become dry
and the seeds fall to the night
An unfoldment of red wine
sipped slowly,
caressing the senses with soft plums,
tannin, wood, and jammy preserves.
All is better felt with the eyes closed.
Barely there swirls of fine leather,
dry subtle spice and sweet juices
awaken the subconscious appetite
for romance and closeness.
As the land celebrates wildflowers
in every imaginable color,
nostalgia and sustenance
reverberate.
The freshly hung tobacco is seen
peeking through
the red wood panels 
of the countryside.
There is a comfort in change
as it is laced with the familiar.

The Personal, The Process, The Gathered

Petal Fetish is an update re-work of my 2014 composition Nicotiana Rose.  I wanted to bring this favorite back, while giving it more depth, complexity, roundness, and sultry facets, and still keep the integrity of the original which hinged on the balance of jams and leathers. 

The updated 2020 batch includes a chocolatey nuanced extraction of true orris roots, which add a timeless feeling and extended longevity, along with a je ne sais quoi that only orris can provide.

The opening is deeply juicy, with fresh, ripe oranges, not unlike a messy bite into dripping fruit on a summer day. Abundant, mouth watering, primal.  As it unfolds on the skin it maintains a sophisticated ambery sweetness that gives structure to the floral bouquet and jammy, leathery tobacco notes.  Woven into the wear, you might find woods, sweet waxy facets, mineral hints, and steeped tea with honey. You might notice the higher notes of fresh rose petals underneath the fruits, or the neroli blossom floating on the vanilla, or the musky pull of sandalwood underneath the labdanum.
