'Far' conjures a lime/yuzu cheesecake with a biscuit base. I adore Yuzu, a citrus scent that is a little fizzy, like sherbet! Incredibly zesty and energising, and with a dash of lime it dances from the bottle! Full of sunshine and vim, this is a fragrance to wear with a smile.
When one thinks of Yuzu, one thinks of Japan - they have a bathing ritual (the Yuzu Bath) with the fruit on the winter solstice. However the Yuzu for this fragracne are grown in the Alentejo region of Portugal, a fragile area often devastated by wild fires and desertification, so it is teetering on the brink! Several regenerative farmers are fighting back and are now enriching the soil so that it stores carbon and builds biodiversity. This fragrance was created using essential oil made from recycled leftovers and extracted using microwave distillation which relieves pressure on the water-stressed region! Where there's a will!
A socially, ethically and ecologically astute label, that works with indigenous peoples to ensure that the plants are farmed responsibly and the environment protected, thus promoting social, economic and ecological resilience.
There are eight fragrances in the collection and each is centred around a strong, single heart-note. When a scent is a diva, and exceptional in every way, it is a mistake to surround her with a choir. She needs to be given room to perform.
These fragrances shine a spotlight on quality, the very best vanilla note, the finest cedarwood and most seductive sandalwood etc. This is perfume as it should be - not olfactory cacophony, but a streamlined, symphony of scent.
