Migration de L’Arbre by Senyoko at Indigo Perfumery
A 2019 Art & Olfaction Awards finalist (top 10)
“In winter, I just paint myself in green; green is the woodcutter’s song on the cliff.”
Migration de L’Arbre discovers the friendship between a certain bird and a certain tree. This fragrance contemplates the relationship between earth, animal, space, and time; serenity, loyalty, promise, and perpetuality.
Senyokô has used fibrous notes, which mimic the physical composition of wood and roots and the nuzzling warmth of feathers - a recognition of the bird’s importance.
Migration de L’Arbre permeates eternally as the sensations comprising the fond mimic the opening of the fragrance. We end where we began:clary sage blooms into osmanthus, which in turn folds under tobacco leaves as they gently ebb towards and segue into molecular ambergris - molecular ambergris being a product of clary sage. This fluctuating cycle is draped in an omnipresent veil of woods - the life cycle of this fragrance. Serenity, loyalty, promise and perpetuality are distilled in Senyokô's Migration de L’Arbre.
