Looking for something fresh with a little zing? If so, Future Fiction could be the scent for you this season my friend!
Future Fiction opens up with a burst of citrus in a medley of Lemon, Bergamot, Mandarin Orange & Jerusalem Pine! From there, the mood gets a bit more sophisticated yet still playful. Not playful naughty but playful Tag You're It!
White Musk: is floral, woody and musky with a hint of animalic muskiness. Yet another musk coming atcha!
Jamaican Ginger: Spicy, refreshing, sharp, bracing yet light, and really helps contain the overflow of colors happening in the accord.
White Pepper: PAA chose white pepper to add a little animalic boost to the White Musk. The two paired really well together and synergistically rounded out the more woody elements. A very masculine character.
Haitian Vetiver: Deep, slightly sweet and resinous, with pronounced earth and root notes and light smoky undertones.
Hiba Wood: The scent is a uniquely citrusy and cedar-like. The Hiba functions as a bridge between the top notes and base notes. Fun Fact: Hiba wood has long been used in Japan for building houses and pagodas. Construction takes many forms.
Honey Amber: Is a delightfully aromatic and intoxicatingly rich scent. Honey Amber is characteristically defined as a sweet, woody earthy note. It is made up of various tree resins, with a touch of vanilla and honey which give the honey amber resin its memorable sweet aroma. Because of it's epic fragrance make-up, it is considered a sacred temple powder often referred to as "Nectar of the Gods" or "Ambrosia" in certain cultures and literature.
Peppermint: Mints and spices play so well together when laid out in a proper counterpoint of each other. Peppermint in combination with the black sage and white pepper really added some energy and motion to the blend. Very refreshing & engaging.
Jerusalem Pine Resin: [Featured in EDP & Aftershave] Now for the crowning note, Aleppo pine also known as Jerusalem pine! One of the most aromatically sublime pine notes produced in nature.
Seriously, One catches traces of lemon, bergamots and cedrat fruits still on the trees! There is also a lovely, fresh sharpness to the top of this resin as well, comparable to a splash of lime zest entwined with a distinct vegetative note that reminds one of just picked string beans. As the aroma develops the fresh fruit character remains but takes on a zingy quality which leads onto an intense wave of fresh pine notes. Jerusalem Pine is really some magical and animate stuff and added a much needed depth to the original scent!
