Legend has it that an apple from a tree fell on Newton’s head – and thus, the theory of universal gravitation was born. But let’s reimagine. Instead of an apple, an enormous, fully scented, fleshy Rose met with by sweet Lychee, deep Akigalawood and earthy patchouli for a new scented path, beyond light and gravity.

FULL DESCRIPTION

EXPERIMENTUM CRUCIS Open a new scented path, beyond light and gravity Newton, excuse us!

Legend has it that an apple from a tree fell on Newton’s head – and thus, the theory of universal gravitation was born. But then let’s imagine a different scene – Newton, asleep under a rose bush. And instead of an apple, a flower falls, an enormous rose, a fully scented, fleshy rose. Would he have felt it? Would he have plunged his face into the heart of the flower? And what would this mean for his theory?

This scent: A chypre! And a very precise and clear-cut formula, like something that falls on you, sudden and direct. And never leaves you. A trail of scent that holds on. Akigalawood and patchouli for a honeyed rose.

Newton, excuse us! Your Crucial Experience showed us that colors are not characteristics of objects but properties of light. We now know, thanks to you, that white light is a mixture of rays with the nuances of the rainbow. You also showed us that just because an object IS red does not mean that we see it as red. If it appears red to our visual perception, this is because, when illuminated with a white light source (for example, sunlight), its surface absorbs all the colored light rays that compose it, EXCEPT the reds.

So forgive us for taking inspiration from your Experimentum Crucis! You have been the inspiration and the source of criticism for so many. And as your theory has changed our vision of the world, we have tried to create a fragrance that will change the world.

Powerful frag

Been sampling for awhile before I pulled the trigger for full size. This frag is strong, and soothing. Lasts 8+ hours on me so like smelling it all day.

It makes me smell like I want to smell, like I deserve to smell, like I smell in my dreams... It’s lucid freaking dreaming for my nose and I couldn’t be any happier.

I received a sample of this fragrance earlier this year, used it in it's entirety immediately and then felt bereft, but continued to open my closet and get whiffs of the fragrance on previously worn clothing. This scent LASTS and is intoxicating. I spritz it on myself when I'm working from home in my sweats or getting ready for bed. More More More.

Least favorite, until I put it on

I received my sample set and I’m not kidding, upon spraying this on the paper I immediately despised it. After applying all the scents to the papers, this was far and away my least favorite and I figured I’d never bother trying it on lest someone have the unfortunate experience of smelling me.

But that was before COVID-19. Since I’m not going anywhere, I figured I’d try them all on different days, and I finally got to this one. I can’t say it’s my new favorite, but I am genuinely impressed with what a difference is made by adding this scent to skin. It’s no longer the stale smell of grandma masking her lack of shower by too much cloying “rose artificielle”, instead I pick up the sweetly fruity lynchee and the blooming rose garden. It’s quite extraordinary, but you must love musks.
