Distilled fifty shades of green. Inspired by Nankichi Niimi's 1930's short story "Last Year’s Tree"
This perfume is a "window of enlightenment", a tale of friendship between a bird and a tree. The bird sings for the tree every day, until it has to migrate to the South to survive winter; it does so with a promise to return in spring and sing for the tree again. Upon its return, the bird finds only a stump in the place of its dear friend…
The perfumer choses clary sage as a central theme to convey the perpetual motion of Nature. The various facets of this ingredient – herbaceous, floral, tobacco – are highlighted during the different stages of the fragrance’s evolution.
The opening of Migration de L'Arbre is a wonderful citrus blast, creating a calm sensation of walking through a serene forest after the rain: an exhilarating feeling and the smell of damp grass and earth, just when the sun peeks through the ancient old trees. The floral facets of clary sage are highlighted with apricot-tinged osmanthus and touches of magnolia. The increasingly musky clary sage is mellowed by a warm sensation of light sweetness, as the synergy of coumarin - a hay like tobacco, pomegranate, unexpected fruity accents and aromatic mastic, create an unexpected turn of motions. The base of the Perfume revolves around patchouli and a plethora of wonderful woods, handled in the most ethereal way.
The dry-down, a sort of "closed loop" aspect of the story, where one sensation or material evaporates, another similar takes its place, moving – or migrating – the perfumer created a textural accord to represent the bird without the use of animalic materials. By using seaweed absolute, cumin and a complex blend of grasses, herbs and molecules, the composition produces a sensation, which resembled the plumage of the bird, "soft, nuzzling, mineral-like." - Euan McCall.
