SYNOPSIS: At age 65, when famed explorer and author Philip Sava was given less than a year to live, he set off from his home in Madagascar for parts unknown. Leaving all his belongings behind, he set off on foot, hopped a freighter across the Indian Ocean, and wandered into the Bangladeshi wilderness. His journey, which lasted over a decade, took him through Nepal and Tibet, where his exploration turned spiritual and into rural China, where months of solitude resulted in some of the most confessional observations ever committed to paper. This is the story of a man grappling with the meaning of life as he grasps at life’s last vestiges.

Beginning with black tea and smoked lapsang souchong, O, Unknown! develops to reveal the musk balsams and moss. The rest of the notes are a bit hard to pinpoint – like its name indicates, this scent is difficult to describe – it’s sweet and powdery yet woody, earthy and even slightly medicinal. Everytime you smell it you want to go back in to try and figure out what notes you’re picking up, or what it reminds you of. A truly esoteric scent that lasts on the skin for 6-8 hours.

O, Unkown! reminds us of a traditional Chinese teahouse, shelves stacked with rows of jars full of fermented black tea, ready for ceremonial use. The tea is poured, and the steam from the teapot permeates the wooden shelves and floorboards, all the fragrances of the room infusing with one another as you succumb to the experience. Splash on O, Unknown! and plunge forth into prosperity and joy. Repeat as often as you are able.
