Hey Posse! We have now a model new fragrance home from Australia. Very small. My stunning buddy Roxana Villa launched me to the proprietor Amanda Thompson (just about). I requested her to ship me a pattern. Below the strict concept that if I cherished her perfume I’d write about it,. Something much less and I’d not. No burgeoning firm wants a beat down. With fragrance being so intensely subjective I didn’t even wish to do an “It’s stunning however not my factor” put up both. She did and I’m writing. Phew!
When you have solely ever smelled division retailer or mall perfume then Ulysses can be an olfactory revelation. It’s far faraway from that very basic public, straightforward to market, money seize stuff. This may occasionally shock and even even repel you at first as a result of in comparison with most of what you’re used to this can be a dwelling, respiration, aromatic reflection of Mom Earth.
From the model:
Ulysses is the title of an Australian blue butterfly. (Additionally) the Roman title for Odysseus, the protagonist of the traditional Greek delusion, ‘The Odyssey’, which represents a narrative of 1’s journey again dwelling and the way every lesson discovered alongside the way in which brings one nearer to our important nature. As the primary SIUNO perfume, it represents the birthing of a brand new world manifested from acutely aware creation. Ulysses is a reminder of the divine presence and magic in all of life, and a name to embrace and tune into it.
Being a purist at coronary heart and realizing the way in which that scent interacts with our minds, our bodies and spirits, I change into curious to be taught extra in regards to the world of botanicals. That is the place I encountered, perfumer Roxana Villa. Inside our first dialog, the synchronicities between us have been very obvious. Precisely a 12 months after that dialog in the midst of a pandemic, I made a decision to observe my instinct and journey to Santa Fe, New Mexcio (AKA The Land of Enchantment). It was right here in Roxana’s perfumery our first signature scent Ulysses was realised.
We solely use important oils, co2 extracts, absolutes and resins to create our fragrance synergies. We adhere to the Worldwide Fragrance Foundations requirements for pure perfumery.

Ulysses glows! The opening is inexperienced shot via with resinous woodiness. It’s a beautiful humus wealthy forest ground in heat dappled daylight as you wander by or via with buddies. It takes some time for the sweetness of the citruses to make themselves identified over the overall extravaganza of the remainder of the notes.
As the primary fireworks subside I’m left with a citrus sweet-ish amber, lower via with shafts of earthy/twiggy vetiver and it additionally smells loads like patchouli hiding within the shadows. The guts even has eucalyptus references and I’m questioning if it’s the dry minty abrasiveness of the Aussie sandalwood because it settles in. One other factor that isn’t named however I’m positive there’s a dose of is galbanum. That fabulous clear inexperienced resin that makes the whole lot much more beautiful.
A crew of us Sydney fragrance peeps have been sniffing this collectively and Jocelyn mentioned she may odor the clary sage clear as day. All of us sort of shrugged so she went and grabbed a few of it and instantly the sunshine went on. How wonderful to have the ability to notice the notice. Ulysses was a unanimous hit.
As we head in direction of dry down ulysses turns into a mushy wash of inexperienced woods and creamy woods, yeah I don’t understand how each of them run so seamlessly in parallel however they do.
Completely unisex, projection and longevity are reasonable. An ideal perfume for somebody uninterested in the common and able to put on one thing new and earthy. Roxana Villa has finished a gorgeous job creating this aromatic jewel.
