A bold, exotic scent, sensual and earthy, with a surprising freshness.
This deep, earthy perfume is built around Nagarmotha, a grass from India. The perfume oils are from the roots of the plant. The scent of Nagarmotha oil is stunning: warm, woody, almost balsamic, and full of exotic spicy narcotic notes.
To the bold Nagarmotha base, rich noble and hypnotic notes from Patchouli, the elegant earthy facets of smokey Vetyver from Java, and luxurious modern Olibanum (also known as Frankincense), are blended in.
The unexpected bright citrus sparkle comes from Makrut Lime Leaf, which is layered over a foundation of warm, vibrating Atlas Cedar and bright, flowery Palmarosa.
Nagarmotha (Cyperus scariosus) is a riverbank grass native to India. In Chinese medicine, Nagarmotha is said to regulate Qi, the life energy. The plant's roots, once dried, give off an exotic wood scent with a distinct spicy note.
AER's Nagarmotha is hand-harvested in the springtime from plants growing in Madhya Pradesh, India.
