More Perfume Details
"An intoxicating, woody and balsamic oriental fragrance for both men and women. Based on the ancient commercial trade between Asia, Europe and the Americas, NANBAN is our headiest, most sensual fragrance, with a spicy, leathery opening and a lush, robust incense base.
January 1618, a Japanese galleon, the Pacific ocean.
Following a diplomatic mission to the West, a galleon carrying a delegation of samurai charges through dark ocean currents. Loaded with a rare and precious cargo, the ship's hull is redolent of sweet-smelling tropical woods, heady Spanish leather, frankincense, fine black pepper and other exotic ground spices - the intoxicating spirit of a singular, extraordinary voyage of discovery." --arquiste.com (Nov. 2015)
