Natura Fabularis Tenebrae EDP 75ml
L’Artisan Parfumeur fragrances create the perfect harmony between nature and the imaginary – Natura Fabularis is Daphne Bugey’s imagined gardens around the world. Stemming from the philosophy that the Cabinet of Curiosities played a major role in the circulation of knowledge and ideas, the Natura Fabularis collection pays homage to Emille Deyrolles work, specializing in flora and fauna. Deyrolle’s mission was to explain the Earth to people – committed to the 3 fields of activities – Nature, Art, Education. To draw inspiration from nature, to enhance its beauty through art and to transmit this to people through education.
Natura Fabularis explores nature in its most abstract, a mysterious olfactive experience. The power of the imagination, bringing nature to life through scent. Each number noted on the bottle of each scent refers to the number of edits that were made to the original formula.
Tenebrae plunges us into the heart of a mystical dark woodland. A Shamanic forest where Incense fumes infuse the pure Sap. One needs to look through the leaves at the top, to catch a glimpse of the sun, although it tries hard to shine through this impenetrable and mysterious forest. We find ancient trees with roots that have formed gnarled sculptures, and willowy trunks covered in resin grow towards the skies, in pursuit of light. What appears dark at first is quite magical in Tenebrae. The pursuit of sun and light engulfs the wonderful and enchanted forest.
Middle: Sap, Fir
Base: Woody Notes, Olibanum
HOW IT WEARS
Tenebrae has great longevity, we get at least 8 hours on the skin. And the wear is beautiful, the warm resins mingle with the Incense so delicately and seamlessly. We also get a note of Pine coming through which really transports us to the middle of a deep and dark forest.
We love the soft and deep woody resins in Tenebrae. They sit close to the skin with their wonderful warmth, smelling like freshly chopped woods from the forest. The Incense note brightens the fragrance and we love that it represents the forest moving (or in Incense’s sense – wafting) upwards toward to the sun and light. As this fragrance moves from dark woods to smoky, light it envelops the skin in the most delightful way.
