Chrysolithe Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Olivier Durbano. The notes of this fragrance are Caraway, cinnamon, black pepper, ginger, sage, rosemary, jasmine, cedar, vetiver, ambergris, musk
Mentioned in the Bible, Qu’ran and holy texts across Asia, chrysolithe (now often called peridot) is a gem-quality stone with a gold-green glow brilliant enough to more than explain why it inspired so much superstitious wonder across the ancient world. In his latest?poem of stones, ?? Olivier Durbano celebrates the majestic power of this magical and precious material with a spectacular scent, equal parts fresh, spicy, green and warm, that shifts from woods to aromatics to spice with captivating, sparkling unpredictability.
While Chrisolythe seems to have little use for the typical top-heart-base structure, the first blast seems to give you a taste of everything, with fresh, tart verbena glowing against a mélange of dazzling spices and fiery ginger. As the uniquely green hyssop note emerges, its raw, camphorous qualities supplement various notes at random- for a moment pairing with rich cedar and sweet musk, then changing to favor aromatic sage and rosemary or delicately floral jasmine. As might befit a stone imbued with ancient and mystical power, we can’t fully define what makes Chrysolithe so compelling. But there’s no denying that its dynamic, aromatic, mysterious aura has absolutely cast a spell on us.
