Navegar (L'Artisan)

This is what I wished for but did not get from Comme des Garçons Ourzazate-- a blistering furnace-blast flown in special from scorching desert climes. Not the tiniest trace of sweetness blunts its intensity (though if you must have sugar in your lava, orange blossom pairs with this volcano as unreservedly as if to a marriage vow born). At exactly the right moment, the heat lowers like a gas flame precisely adjusted by hand to maintain the perfect simmer. And simmer it does -- like a fever -- until it breaks, leaving behind only delirious dreams.

Scent Elements: Lime, ginger, capsicum, black pepper, star anise, rum, cedar, guaiacwood, incense
