Annette Neuffer Myhrra Mystica
We find ourselves in that chancy segment of wintry days in many parts of the world: post-holidays, the encroaching of very real winter, a portion of the season when we clutch at whatever is at hand in order to illuminate our days and nights. Many struggle to make sense of demons (both internal and external) as others, from my life’s experience and documentation – yield themselves up to despair. Is there an olfactory tonic with which to dispel gloom? I’m here to avow that Annette Neuffer Myhrra Mystica is one, a long-lasting, natural perfume and a profound delight. Meet Annette Neuffer, my dear friend from Bavaria I’ve known for years, and it’s my pleasure to introduce you. To call Annette Neuffer a Polymath is to underestimate her: everything she touches turns to gold, whether one chooses to regard her considerable musicianship (jazz singer and trumpeter, teacher, arranger, concert artist), perfumery, wit, parenting, wide knowledge base, multilingual abilities. Annette Neuffer Avicenna Myrrha Mystica, composed in 2016 is a fine starting point, a variation on an aromatic theme initiated in 2007, Annette’s original Avicenna– described by the perfumer as “a spicy oriental rose theme, named after the Persian scientist and philosopher Avicenna from Isfahan, who invented the distillation of rose oil in the 10th century. All its bona fide bone structure remains, adorned with an abundance of exquisitely arid expressive myrrh counterbalancing its spicy floral generosity.sense.
