N° 6 Extrait de Parfum


The Inspiration

Christmas mass is about to begin at the historic cathedral in my town. The incense has just been added to the thurible and ignited. The hundred-year-old bells are tolling. Omani Frankincense and Ethiopian Myrrh are perfect for N° 6 because they are the two main varieties of incense burned during the traditional mass. Frankincense lends fruity, citric, and woody tones, while Myrrh provides sweetness and subtle spiciness. Tonka Bean adds a quiet smokiness and depth to the resins, further smoothed out and refined with creamy Mexican Vanilla.


The Composition

Dark and sophisticated Mexican Vanilla and Tonka Bean provide a quiet but intoxicating smokiness to N° 6, while abstract spices whirl around a complex and warm accord of Omani Frankincense and Ethiopian Myrrh.
