FORT & MANLÉ Confessions of a Garden Gnome 50ml
“It’s been four seasons since my last confession” – Anonymous
The bloom of spring, the winter chill, the summer sun and the autumn wind can only be experienced by those who have become one with it.
The garden is all we know and here we shall remain.
Crisp morning dew through fragrance, Confessions of a Garden Gnome captures four seasons in one day. A composition in transparency, delicate Cedarwood washed in Musk is moved with a breeze of Sicilian Bergamot, Coriander, exotic Yuzu, and the fruity-rose inflections of Pink Peppercorn. This chord carries a verdant springtime sonata of lily-of-the-valley, enlivened with pulpy sweet Mango and unexpected hums of sheer Rose and striking Violet Leaf. For counterpoint, the salty air of Ambergris and Amber charge this woody floral.
Perfume Type: Woody Floral
Perfumer: Rasei Fort
Fort & Manle is a Maison de Parfum whose philosophy is to continually create individualistic, eclectic and often eccentric handcrafted, luxury perfume.
Fort & Manle is an independent, artisanal perfume house which is founded and wholly owned by the perfumer himself, Rasei Fort.
In an attempt to strive for scent perfection, using predominantly the most refined and exquisite naturals, botanicals and absolutes, Rasei aims to transport the user, whisking them away on a sumptuous, olfactive journey to the most exotic locales on the planet, to be truly enveloped by naturally authentic and vivid scent.
Not being deterred by the exorbitant costs of the finest natural raw materials, at Fort & Manle, we adhere to using the most refined and precious natural extracts rather than substituting them with inexpensive and artificial, synthetic molecules, which have become so prevalent within the industry.
Obsessive in his approach, Rasei meticulously blends artisanal oils, extracts and the finest Oudh in existence. The results speak for itself, truly enhancing the fragrance, coupled with sprinklings of the most effective aroma molecules.
As a self-taught perfumer, Rasei Fort continually references history and varied cultures, including his own rich, Turkish heritage by scouring the world for the finest raw materials and combining them with his inspirations, evoking the pomp and pageantry of the Empires of old.
This has resulted in the creation of luxurious compositions which combine the modern with 'Old-World' sensibilities.
Please note: Due to the nature of the natural raw materials used in our fragrances, the perfumes may vary slightly between batches.
