WILD SPACE opens with a fierce tomcat spray (blackcurrant) that marks his territory, and then succumbs to the pungency of aged Hindi and green Vietnamese oudhs.
What carries this into fresher/brighter territory is the complete cocktail of wild plant medicine it contains: –
Bergamot, Violet Leaf, Galbanum, Blackcurrant, Rose de Mai, Cypress, Juniper, Siberian Fir Needle, Virginian Cedar, Sandalwood, Frankincenses:- Bos. Carterii/Frereana/Sacra (Royal Green Hojari) & Dalzieli, Oakmoss, Labdanum, Vetiver, Coastal Tea Tree, Tasmanian Boronia, Vietnamese and Quadeem oudhs.
** LATE NEWS:– when I returned from Tasmania last weekend, I was so inspired by the overwhelmingly beautiful landscape of Cradle Mountain and the primordial power of the Tasmanian Highland Wilderness that I immediately did 2 things. I booked us another flight to return the very same week to see more. I also added a very large extra dose of Viet Oudh, Tasmanian Boronia and some Coastal Tea Tree to my own Wild Space.
Coastal Tea Tree is a very amazing and totally different scent to the usual type of Tea Tree. Coastal Tea Tree (Leptospermum laevigatum) oil is wild-harvested on Flinders Island, and is a very small-batch beauty that offers the natural perfumer an earthy sweet/fatty wood scent that really boosts the solid ground of Wild Space. I just had to do this.
So although the samples that already went out aren’t so radically different, they are just a little less oudy/woody than the final product. Sometimes the last lightning bolt of inspiration strikes unexpectedly and late.
From today (Tuesday 13th Feb 2024) all samples and bottles of WILD SPACE are up to date. If you purchased a WILD SPACE sample and received the early bird/prototype, I’m sorry. If you let me know, we can update your sample in your next order. It’s just the nature of small-batch, natural, artisanal perfume that occasionally/rarely, I’m compelled to make a late edit. It’s my obsessive devotion to the craft that overrides all logic and sensibility.
*** 20% of the full price of every bottle of WILD SPACE sold is donated to the Australian Wilderness Society in support of the extraordinary work being done to protect our world heritage nature.
