Like the last breath of sun at the end of a summer’s day, Mark Buxton Wood and Absinth Eau de Parfum is a fragrance of intimate warmth and impending shade.
The friction between coolness and heat is at the core of this scent. An orb of light suspended in twilight, it captures that magic moment between day and night fall, when the balminess of the air turns ever crisper.
This contrast is reflected in Wood and Absinth’s blend of contrasting notes, from the green bite of absinth and the vibrating freshness of vetiver, to the heady warmth of rosewood and cedar wood.
Our Fragrance Expert Says:
"Buxton describes the note of absinth as being “awkward to dress up” due to its strong green and bitter facets, therefore it’ll be no surprise that his approach to the note is decidedly unusual. Pairing it with notes of vetiver and clary sage, the absinth here is soapy and evocative of an old school gentleman’s aftershave.
Woods in the base strengthen the interplay between bitter spirits and earthy vetiver, allowing for a rugged intensity to shine through in the fragrance’s latter stages. It’s altogether rather impressive and shows absinth in an entirely new light, one where the darker aspects are tamed into a rather dapper presentation."
