Cuir composed of Cardamom, Absinthe, Juniper, Leather, Cade, Castoreum and Resinoid Opoponax rises off the skin as a sacrilegious paradox. Wild and devout, the consummate solitude in the rear of the Cathedral amongst the lingering scent of incense ash and spluttered wax, a threshold that is a liminal space urging you to independence and strength yet unfolding to something of simple, elegant surrender. Simultaneously it is pristine, glass water, impinged upon by cedar, birch, larch and poplar bud, taking an inhalation of pure, crisp, oxygen rich air infusing me with purpose, a cathedral in another guise.
