It’s no secret to most of our community that earlier this year I completed my Master’s in Perfumery in Italy. It has been a journey dedicated to discovery and innovation. For me, it was about closing the circle on an incomplete academic chapter. One that took me back to a nostalgic era that I yearn for daily, yet one that also guides me towards a brighter future.
During this journey, I rediscovered chypre and oriental notes, vetiver bases, marine accords, and reconciled with different roses and some gourmand compositions. I also delved into new facets of iris scents in all their variations, but what truly captivated me was the comforting warmth of amber that has brought me solace and serenity in recent months.
For the final exam, I set out to create a fragrance inspired by Grey Amber – An ingredient as enigmatic in its origins as its preparation. Following the Twelve Beauty philosophy, I sought out natural essences and components capable of capturing the aromatic scent emitted by this mystical fragrance. The result is a sustainable amber perfume infused with “green” ingredients. Its woody undertones offer an escape from the whirlwind of our daily lives.
I hope you enjoy experiencing it at home as much as I enjoyed creating this authentic, natural alternative to traditional room fragrances, aimed at providing you with a true sense of relaxation and disconnection.
