Sova Parfum Extrait (Slumberhouse)

A little olfactory ode to bucolic contentment, Sova puts me in mind of Omar Khayyám's most famous passage from the Rubáiyát, in which "wilderness is paradise enow" so long as one's Best Beloved attends the picnic. In this translation, heaven smells like a sampler of different types of honey-- locust, clover, black gum, chestnut -- in glass jars spread out upon the blanket and sparkling like Baltic amber in the sun. A fingertip is all that's needed for the feast.

Scent Elements: Poplar bud, tonka bean, hay, vanilla, castoreum, amber, broom, beeswax, black locust, clover, hops
