"Perfume for the Wild"
perfume family: herbal musk chypre
Pan is the Wild God of Nature. He is the Greek version of the European “Horned One”, the Father God of the Forest, who stands for the Wild Forces of Nature. The Passion that drives Stags to mate in spring is his, the divine force that brings the sap of the trees back up out of the ground, bursting into new shoots after the end of Winter. Pan represents everything that is Wild and Free.
One of my favourite books is “Jitterbug Perfume” by Tom Robbins, which is a story about Pan and his intoxicating pheromones, and his journey around the world searching for perfume ingredients to match his own scent. The story is a take on the traditional myths about Pan, who’s scent is supposed to drive man and beast wild wherever he goes. This perfume is my homage to him. It’s central note is Indian Patchouli which is Sacred to Pan. Patchouli oil is distilled from the root of the Patchouli grass. It is said to be a potent aphrodisiac, and contains plant steroids which are precursors to our own hormones. It is a deep and musky scent, earthy and sexual, sweet and animalistic all at the same time. I combined it with Oakmoss resinoid, which is a dry, earthy scent, which always reminds of ancient forests, grandfather oak trees and deep secret places in nature. These two musky scents are added to the wild herbal scents of Thyme, Majoram and Rosemary, which all grow wild on the Greek Isles.
The result is a dry woody herbal chypre, as wild as the God it's named after....
