Ash & Rose Extrait de Parfum 3ml &15ml
Ash & Rose combines ashy qualities of Birch Tar, Cade and Tobacco Absolute and lays them over a boozy-spicy bed of Rose, Rum Extract and Sichuan Pepper. The ashy opening gives way to Hydrocarboresine (a natural cistus-labdanum derivative) which is a major part of one of my favorite incense fragrances that I've tried to date, it's one that's nearly impossible to find now. Ash & Rose was inspired by that particular incense fragrance and a discontinued rose attar from a popular perfume brand.
Although those two are among my favorite fragrances, I never really wore them often. This is my attempt at combining the two fragrances and putting my own boozy-spicy twist on it.
