The most striking aspect of this perfume is that many of the exceptionally beautiful raw materials in Prayer were sourced from highly skilled artisans; distillers and producers of small-batch essential oils, absolutes and tinctures. I have utilised the works of 6 artisans located in Oman, Canada, USA, India and Australia. Each of the raw materials used is a work of art unto itself, already a perfume. The challenge for me was to weave them together into a cohesive fragrance, with total respect for each ingredient’s unique character and scent profile, allowing sufficient space for each nuance to breathe, to speak and to flow throughout the juice.
My personal purpose in crafting Prayer was for the creative immersion with these ancient temple materials translates into a perfume that opens doors to deeply prayerful and peaceful ways; that the perfume aligns with its wearer, and harmonises mind, body and spirit. My planetary wish, is that whilst these fragrant melodies may be appreciated by individuals, their harmonic overtones may also arouse and inspire acts of love and compassion to arise in the earthly spaces that this fragrance wanders.
