AER Accord No. 02: CADE is a smokey, mysterious scent that starts strong with fiery Cade and burnt Frankincense. Pine forest notes from Silver Spruce give way to sweetness from Guaiac Wood and Madagascar Vanilla, and a dry grassiness from Galbanum and smoked herbalness from Java Vetyver.
This is a mesmerising, deeply-layered perfume with a touch of Bourbon sweetness for those who love strong, complex scents full of personality.
Cade comes from an ancient species of juniper that grows at sea level on rocky sites across the Mediterranean. Through distillation of the rough bark a dark, aromatic tar oil with a strong campfire smoke smell is gained. Ancient cultures believed it had the power to chase away evil spirits. The cade used in this perfume is harvested from a managed organic forest in Northern Spain. In the Middle Ages in Europe, Cade was used to scent leather, after the tanning process that left the hides with unpleasant scents.
