A perfume built around a natural CO2 extract of Boswellia serrata, a.k.a. incense; it captures the roughness of the climate of the semi desert where Boswellia trees thrives. It is translucent like the first whiff of incense smoke from Boswellia resin on red gleaming coal. Yet, it is crisp like a night in the desert.
“I built this fragrance around a natural CO2 extract of Boswellia serrata. This natural scent inspired me to create different perfumes, with ‘Incense extrême’; being the most abstract, almost cubist and uncompromising interpretation” -Andy Tauer
The Boswellia serrata extract is the central cornerstone of the fragrance, at an extreme concentration of 25%, rounded off with dry woods and ambergris in the background. Soft orris balances the incense in the heart of the fragrance. And coriander with the freshness of petit grain set the accents in the opening. Incense extrême is a minimalist, cubist, clear interpretation of incense, a touch of spices, powdery orris, dry cedar wood and ambergris, supporting the frankincense, which is rich, red and intense.
