the vibration of the forest. as the resins that run deep are released, that is the pure essence of guaiac. the tree of life. with roots steeped in history, deep within the forests of south america. a miracle cure that shaped civilization and a fragrant discovery that is still treasured today. elegant and earthy, with the brightness of a freshly peeled citrus that resonates on the skin. the scent of journeys unfolded, a worn leather suitcase with the softness of cashmere and smoky tobacco. exotic yet simple.
history: palo alto or lignum vitae, name of the guaiac tree translates to "the tree of life." a natural source of healing power, the tree’s resin treated a host of maladies from coughs, arthritis and disease in native medicine. the dense wood was used as a tool for building and ornamental artwork, and its aromatic resin has a long history in perfumery.
