Gypsy Badlands — Solid Perfume
The idea for Gypsy Badlands as our second solid perfume scent was heavily inspired by an interview with Louis-Géraud Castor titled Flower Power that I discovered in Volume 6 of The Skirt Chronicles.
In it, the writer, Justin Morin, describes flowers as "the perfect sculptural form, an ideal that cannot be reached, a perfect balance of refinement and extravagance, complex forms and pure colours."
This was a sentiment I resonated with and kept in mind as I worked on the notes for this scent. At the heart, Gypsy Badlands is a wildflower dream with a rose floral wax base.
Building on that are notes of Rosewood Musk, Damask Rose and Geranium. To add a little badland magic, the deep, earthy and mystical scents of Myrhh, Cedarwood, Vetiver and Juniper Berry were added to the mix. As the scent develops, expect a delightful burst of citrus with notes Bergamot and Pink Grapefruit. A sweet hint of Vanilla brings this composition together for a bouquet that straddles the line between romanticism and abstraction.
To apply, gently swirl finger in perfume and apply directly to wrist, neck, other pulse points, or through your hair. Continue application until desired fragrance level is achieved for a comforting bubble of aroma that's just for you.
