"Cathedral": An Olfactory Ode to Gothic Majesty
The perfume invites you to experience the grandeur and mystique of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, a marvel of Gothic architecture immortalized by Victor Hugo in his timeless novel "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." This sumptuous fragrance serves as an olfactory tribute to the cathedral's rich history, towering spires, and sacred atmosphere, capturing the essence of its physical and emotional facets.
An Architectural Symphony: The Spirit of Gothic
Inspired by the intricate details and awe-inspiring presence of Notre Dame, the "Cathedral" perfume embodies the spirit of Gothic architecture. This style is known for its soaring arches, ribbed vaults, and ornate rose windows – elements that give rise to a sense of verticality and sacred elegance. The fragrance encapsulates this essence, transporting you to the heart of the cathedral's majesty and timelessness.
Fragrant Grandeur: Resinous Florals and Incense
This fragrance is a captivating blend of notes that mirror the cathedral's atmosphere. Resinous and moderate floral notes intertwine, crafting a bouquet that captures the serene beauty of the place.

It evokes the reverence and spirituality that infuse the air, inviting you to experience a moment of contemplation.
A Fragrance Journey: From Bitter Basil to Birch Tar
The perfume unfolds in stages, like a journey through the cathedral's intricate passages. Bitter basil and grape open the composition, creating a contrast reminiscent of the play between light and shadow within the cathedral's halls. These head notes introduce an intriguing complexity that draws you into the heart of the scent.
As the journey progresses, the heart notes of devilwood and smoked pear emerge. Devilwood, also known as osmanthus, adds a delicate yet mysterious touch, symbolizing the cathedral's hidden stories and secrets. Smoked pear adds a touch of intrigue, like the whispered echoes of history reverberating through its walls.
The grand finale of "Cathedral" rests in the base notes – a combination of frankincense, myrrh, incense, and birch tar. These notes conjure the aromatic tapestry of sacred rituals and ancient traditions, a testament to the spiritual significance of the cathedral. Frankincense and myrrh, renowned for their deep spiritual associations, intertwine with the evocative power of incense and the earthy allure of birch tar.
