“The constellation of the snake is huge and has a triangular shaped head on one end. It recalls the snake who taught Orpheus how to bring the dead back to life. It is also tangentially a reminder of the staff of Asclepius the god of medicine whose twining snake is still the proper symbol of the medical profession.
To make this blend I took bright starry crystalline musk and cast a foreground of darker more resinous things to enchant: aged patchouli, deep woody vanilla, a goodly jolt of sandalwood, white oude, a pearly clove scent, a fat vanilla, a black vanilla, and natural tonka bean infusion. Snaky, smoky, complex, and elegant.”
