A name based on a scent descriptor of wine-tasting notes for Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Many scent descriptions on wines harken a place and time – the French have mastered this, hence the idea of terroir. All the poetry aside, it smells like wet dirt.
Green leaves and soil scented from rain, alive and ozonic. As in a glass of champagne, when a raindrop hits the ground, air bubbles rise upward, releasing a fizz of aromatic natural aerosols that carry hidden scents of the earth as they evaporate.
Misty forest ferns and dirt-covered wild mushrooms hover over a heavy peaty aroma of dark green moss and damp, woody tree bark. A divine and distinctive earth perfume for the home.
Is not the smell of forests delicious? It seems to ascend like the smoke of incense.
