"i wanted to create a collection of scents that were iconic, classically cool and chic, modern as in relatable, classic in longevity, scents that were conceived from thoughts and moments in my life created from deep with-in my soul with joyous passion and profound love, scents that elevate your senses, that you desire to wear continuously, that everytime you wear them it feels like the first time, you shine, project radiance, through embracing the qualities that are the true you, becoming the best version of yourself" dgr
these scents were not conceived with the thought of male/female, rather the idea of one ... to wear a scent is neither masculine nor feminine it is the balance of the exploration, of embracing the opposite of those characteristics which we do not possess.
it has always been a instinctive process for me to wear more than one scent at a time, an intriguing adopted manner of self expression, manifesting obsolete wonderment, grounded in commonalities ...as all species share common traits its our individual characteristics that reveal our true self, these scents sharing cedarwood, a connection to earth, awareness, stillness, an aphrodisiac of clarity, patchouli, three rare refined individual adaptations creating illumination of love on all levels, transparency, establishing grounding qualities for each scent to shine .
awareness, of my given attribute for the the need to discern , emanates in all facets of my life, speaking to aesthetic, referring to scent, understanding the intensity to create the illusion of simplicity and distraction in form, being, ease, imbalance to achieve balance a conscious ease in void, modernism in the continuation of moving forward while never feeling futuristic or already there
