A mildly astringent and ironically awake blend. Lemon without the usual “funky” zest entwines with a harmonious sage and a shot of borage. There is a lot of the black walnut in this, and a whiff of dark musk. It’s very slightly green and quite cold. It isn’t spicy but it’s intriguingly plant-like on one hand, and raw on the other. A dark dark cool and calm scent.
I just looked out of the back door this morning as I was getting my coffee, and the crescent moon was shining through the angular branches of the poplar tree. The sky was dark blue velvet, and someone had their headlights on which made an earthly counterpoint to the single moon. It was the beginning of the shortest day of the year.
