Esveda by Laboratorio Olfattivo is inspired by the rocky Island Es Vedr, a few hundred metres southwest of Ibiza. Said to be home to the sirens of Homer's Odyssey, and thought by some to be a surviving peak of the lost land of Atlantis, Es Vedr is mythically believed to be geometrically magnetic, the island is a place of legend. Scorched by the Mediterranean sun and beaten by the wind, nature manages to exist on this rocky outcrop. It is this contrast with which nose Pierre Guillaume deals with in his re-working of a classic vetiver scent. Pierre Guillaume has created a vetiver that is at once dry, almost arid, with notes of a magnetic green Coriander Leaves and a firmament of golden Petitgrain Lemon, dusted with a powdery White Musk. In Esveda, Pierre Guillaume has eschewed the traditional fragrance pyramid in favour of a structure where all the notes are magnetically drawn together and meet at the middle.
