Mirage of a dark world
Then it is dark. You sharpen your remaining senses, listen into the boundless emptiness, begin to sense the gloomy surroundings, feel the ground on all fours, breathe in ethereal pine needles, sense a twinge on your hands, and put your fingers to your face, where the thorns smell faintly musty.
Now you dig your hands into stubborn stalks that make you think they're damp earth, digging roots that whisper sweet syrup, like weaves winding on rotten woods that pretend leather and smoke. Are there weathered leaves here too? Do the grasses still creak from the rain, more now smoldering in pungency? You could swear you're crawling across smoky meadows, awash in clay and sprouting fungus, overgrown with roots, rotting leaves and brown now decaying needles.
Gather Perfumes, based in Massachusetts, produces 100% natural fragrances. In doing so, Ananda Wilson incorporates botanical essences, extracts and oils that are either locally wildcrafted or organically grown. The long shelf life of the fragrances is all the more amazing, which is probably due to Ananda's long experience as well as the virtuoso processing of the fragrances. She produces her fragrances in each case in small editions, which are subject to natural seasonal fluctuations.

"Darkness" is an amazing mirage of a dark forest floor. Thus, at the beginning, the galangal creates the image of ethereal pine needles on a damp forest floor (earthy vetiver aromas, mushrooms and musty scratchy stone wind). Soon, slightly sweet notes of dandelion roots and leathery smoky oud are in the mix before the vetiver becomes sharper and smokier, completely dominating the overall picture in the fade-out. The mirage projects a good eight hours moderate.
