Aedes de Venustas

Palissandre d'Or


- +

Abstract and intensely evocative, it expresses the quintessence of the style of its creator Alberto Morillas which can be defined in three words: fluidity, transparency and power.

The crystalline and clear ambrette - a natural musk with facets of rose, iris and pear - illuminates rich inlays of fresh spices: pink pepper, coriander and nutmeg. Then, like a rising and scorching heat of cinnamon, the scent opens one's heart and reveals its secret: a rare Sri Lankan sandalwood extract. Subtly smoky, it becomes even more succulent thanks to the milky warmth of the copahu balm and the silky patchouli extract. A bold trio of cedar essences add structure and texture, while the clean and invigorating Virginia cedar gives it vigor and rhythm.

Palissandre d'Or, fifth fragrance from the Aedes de Venustas maison, sheds a new light on the immemorial scent of precious oriental woods, on a steaming palette of burnt sienna, lacquered in red and molten gold. Serene and mystical, it is a journey into the quintessence of wood.
