Brand: Solstice Scents
Our Light & Shadows: Amber Series continues with the debut of Casting Shadows. The first release in this series was Sea of Gray, which highlighted white amber and ambergris paired with rain, saltwater and vanilla to represent diffuse light. Each perfume in this series focuses on a gradation of light paired with an interpretation of amber to represent the given shade.
Casting Shadows showcases a generous dose of golden amber along with a nag champa incense accord, a touch of dried sugar maple leaves and distant wood smoke to represent shadows. Casting Shadows is a cloaked mystery paired with somber stillness in the hours after midnight. The swirl of amber, leaves and incense balance on the edge of a fall night, just on the cusp of winter. Dominant notes of amber and nag champa. The nag champa accord is saturated with sustainably harvested sandalwood essential oil. The fragile crunchy sugar maple leaves crumble in your hands. They are softly present at initial application and will fade below the amber and incense as the perfume wears. The wood smoke is very soft and weaves seamlessly with the incense smoke to become almost indistinguishable. This unisex fragrance is recommended for lovers of amber and incense perfumes. The amber is rich and full bodied, with a pleasant sweetness, a little resin and no powdery notes. The most restrained spice, floral, oud and vanilla nuances are added to the generous amount of sandalwood in the nag champa accord.
