This is the archival record for Relief.
It was the tenth studio release.
It sold out in January 2021 and has been retired.
The original formulation will not be remade.
For an evening. Quietude despite intensity. Alleviation.
Relief is built from a number of fine natural materials: a studio tincture of raw myrrh, oakmoss absolute, orris resinoid, true cedarwood absolute, Santalum album sandalwood oil, ambrette seed, tobacco absolute, and a rare absolute of the flower Nigella damascena which is often characterized as a thistle. Supporting notes of bergamot and tea beside pangs of warm peppercorn, violets, and hay field round out this breezy composition.
A mellow, but rich perfume, it performs with the chromaticity of an all-natural perfume (Relief is 61% natural absolutes and oils), but with a more generous tenacity. Due to the high content of these natural materials, it is my belief this perfume will mature gracefully over time for collectors who prefer vintage styles.
Unisex — built with everyone in mind.
