Set fire to the broken pieces ,start anew
Des Cendres spins a vivid narrative of rebirth and rejuvenation, akin to a phoenix rising from ashes. Birch tar ,mint and galbanum in the opening creates a cool ashy breeze accord. It's like a forest at dawn where the remnants of last night's fire blend seamlessly with the crispness of morning dew. This opening is not about the flames but the serenity and healing that follow, offering a sense of peace and a mysterious beauty found in the aftermath.
The heart of Des Cendres pulses with life ,a testament to nature's resilience. The green notes are deep and have this resinous quality that's just different and refreshing. Also there is a floral (tuberose) twist that's a bit unexpected making the whole thing feel more alive. The ashy vibe is still there joined by leather and violet leaf to support this "grey feeling".As Des Cendres settles, its base unfolds a sturdy foundation of bitter moss and musk that embodies the enduring spirit of the wilderness. The addition of hyraceum with its subtle animalic undertones highlights the leather and the green accords, animating the whole composition.Throughout this olfactory journey, the theme of ashes remains central, its all about the ashes after all.
Des Cendres is a reminder that after every hardship comes renewal. It's a nod to the past but with a clear eye on the future. Antoine Lie has managed here to capture the essence of recovery, making Des Cendres a testament to healing and hope.

P.S Can't wait to dive into the rest of the collection!

Perhaps it was the hype on this one, but it disappointed me deeply with its cloying tertiary smoked leather jacket.

Pine, woods and ash. Very beautiful for older gentlemen (who loved the 70s masculines). Very high quality and great blend.
