Our thought of “Rising Mysore” was born to establish a direct emotional and mystical relationship. An immersive, pure and sacred.
Our attempt is to archive material memory in the perfume medium. Reinterpret reimagined a serene experience. Visually too we wanted to translate our work. The golden hue liquid, Mysore painting & the smell should bring back the “buried” memories of traditional fragrances. The narrative is of celebration, love, light, festivity, and life.
“Rising Mysore” is sublime & charming to all senses. A feeling of basking morning sunlight. A sense of oneness in praying. A sense of healing in meditation. A breeze of calmness. It is positive, subtle, and relaxing.
The orchestration of ingredients we wanted was unique to Indian tradition with infusion of western classics and Persian influence which came along in the millennia.
The introduction of Holy Basil (tulsi) with Hatkhora lime, Lavender (Italy), Jasmine Sambac (Mogra) and other citrus elements
gives a zesty, white, spicy opening rounded with hint of Rose Damascena on the bed of woody & creamy sandalwood along with “dullo” dance of patchouli. .
The rebellious use of “garam masala” potli (Indian spice family) weaves together all ingredients and gives a smooth transition from the heart to dry down. Very refreshing & brings in unique notes to the blend. Not overpowering. There are breathtaking subtle nuances & it’s is therapeutic. Spicy notes ascents the dry character of the perfume.
Sandalwood we have used lactic of east and spicy Mysore from the south in equal measure laced with robust dark Indian patchouli and humble Javanese. This gives a beautiful dry down like Japanese incense experience lingering on the skin. A monkoh session.We have been blending the ingredients from February of this year and curing. This has come so beautifully so far…a calmness of sandalwood with the spice of herbs & playful white.
