Informed by travel, botany, fashion, psychology, music, literature, and religious custom, Carlen draws rare materials into delicate infusions, delivering all distillations in radically minimalist vessels.
In a land of xerophytic plants and subterranean rivers, prickly pear and grey fox, elf owl and jackal, a pale grey ziggurat disrupts the horizon.
Aztec Noir is a modern interpretation of Pre-Columbian purification rituals involving the wild Palo Santo tree. Once lit, Palo Santo wood releases sinuous helices of smoke thought to cleanse space and self. Before burning, it bears a delicate aroma akin to lemongrass, resurfaced in this scent by white grapefruit. This atavistic blend of incense and citrus is grounded by an infusion of cedarwood and amber.
