“You seek a false comfort when you demand that I define myself for you with words. Words do not contain or define any person. A heart can, if it is willing.”


The Fool. Amber. Lord Golden. Beloved. All names for one of the main protagonists from Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings series. A person of ambiguity, facets, disguises, philosophy. Many of the passages from Hobb’s books have resonated with me on a deep level. Some have even changed my approach to life.
The top and middle are apricot brandy, filled with notes of caramel, juicy apricots, dried apricots, berries, cherries. The base accord is a soft almost creamy accord of white sandalwoods and pale cedar.

 

Descriptors: Brandy, apricots, soft, wood

Ingredients: Fractionated coconut oil, fragrance

Notes in a perfume are single aspects of the scent. This is similar to how musical notes combine to make a chord.

Notes are not always indicative of a specific ingredient, just the single aspect of the overall scent.
