Crystal Pistil


- +

Enhancers are a fun way to create sheer fragrances that can be worn alone or layered with whatever someone else is digging into right now. I wanted to create a soft and crystalline scent that would highlight the moist parts inside a flower. My muse, so to speak, was a reminder of orange blossom water sprinkled freely in the air upon entering a market in the back streets of Fez in Morocco. Orange blossom water is surprisingly inviting, like the smell of freshly baked bread. I've always wished that water could be worn like a perfume but it doesn't last (it's the secret ingredient I use in my famous - with my kids - pancakes). And the oil you extract from the flower, while lovely, doesn't have the same balmy vibe as water. Crystal Pistil my attempt to make that fresh, moist note of flowers last in all its crystalline glory.
