An exotic treasure from distant shores and alluring destinations...this unisex lavish scent is a none-too-sweet melding of dry vanilla and smoked sugar cane enfolded by a trio of rich oud attars, dark amber and Indian black musk attar.
from the diary of Selwyn Parslow, Summer 1820
...it is the period once again whence we welcome our friend Captain Bartholomew Jones, as his ship the Windward has returned to our fair shores with many luxury goods in its’ hold. The good Captain has numerous tales of his travels and some are not deemed fit for a lady’s ears but he is always welcome in my parlour where over a cup of Lapsang souchong or Darjeeling and the finest shortbread biscuits in our little hamlet (Llewellyn is simply a treasure, I must say) I can prise from the man a few harrowing chronicles of pirates and storms and other hazards of the seafaring life. I confess I am astounded how he manages to return to us year after year but I am eternally grateful for the lovely Kashmir shawls he provides me, carefully packed within an exquisite sandalwood chest carved with many curious designs...the garments laid betwixt layers of patchouly leaves and the scent which rises into the air once the chest is opened is simply otherworldly! He says for my kindness and regard he would fetch me the Crown Jewels of the Raj himself and I must remind myself that although a sailor is a denizen of the deep as is said, is equally an individual one might refer to as wholly earthy as regards certain modes of discourse...
