a thoughtful process and alchemical harmony
Filtering. the last phase before pouring into atomizers. the plant materials have steeped and synthesized to become MeiUke.
With notes of blood orange, fragrant flowers, the process began with distinct decoctions.
The first drew out tuberrose with spices to temper the cloying flower; the second and bulk of MeiUke is organic grapefruit and silver fir. A hint of jasmine and champaca in the middle set the fragrance on the skin.
A challenge with any fragrance is to affix the fragrance to the skin, leaving a compelling dry-out that harmonizes with the top and heart of the fragrance.
The result is a bright, up lifting floral that I'm really proud of. It wears well. Plus for those of us who love to layer our fragrances, it plays well with woody, resinous fragrances - and the amber/orientals I love so much.
