The process of creating this scent from start to finish takes us just a little under six weeks. Our first step is to blend the benzoin with the alcohol and let it macerate for a period of twelve days. Stage two is adding our woods and allowing this to mature with the benzoin for a further 8 days. Our third stage is to add our cardamom, Siberian fir and black pepper. These notes also require 7 days days to bloom within our blend. Our fourth stage involves six citrus oils such as yuzu, mandarin, clementine, lemon, bergamot and neroli . The perfume needs a further ten days once the citrus oils are added and our final stage is to add 2% Fig oil. The perfume is bottled 8 days after the final note is added.
