Scent Description: It seems to be a rite of passage for indie perfumers to create an "Embalming Fluid" perfume. So now, it's Morari's turn! This perfume is based off of a recipe for embalming powder, created by Ambroise Paré in the 1500s. I took a little creative liberty with it, though :) It's a refreshing, lavender-heavy herbal blend; it starts off sharp, but the benzoin softens it during drydown, and the cinnamon adds some warmth. Since bodies would be filled with layers of moistened cotton in addition to the embalming powder, I also added a clean linen accord and a watery note. So, this perfume alludes to the whole experience, minus, you know, the body. I couldn't bring myself to make an accord for that hehe.
