Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s 1899 novella of the same name, this is a journey by steamer up the Congo River into the unknown.
The fragrance explores Marlow’s journey up the Congo River into the unknown by steamboat. Opening with the scent of jungle and damp moss before being cut through by the scent of coal that trails after the boat and lingers on the jungle air. This is then challenged by a clean almost puritanical essence that echoes the mindset of the colonists who misguidedly saw themselves as the superior and benevolent civilisation.
Watery green floral notes give way to the scent of dark woods and damp moss, infused with hints of burning coal and amber.
