Anya's Garden will introduce two new fragrances this November, Kaffir & Temple.
Kaffir is based on the Kaffir lime:
My Kaffir perfume contains both the oil of the leaves and even more rare, the extract of the fruit...I extracted the fruit rind oil myself for this perfume. Kaffir contains notes of many of the plants that grow in my garden -especially my rare jasmines. I grow eight different jasmines, from J. officinale and a related variety Flore Plena, through all the J. Samacs, including Grand Duke of Tuscany, Maid of Orleans, Belle of India, Belle of India longipetala, and "night blooming jasmine" and "orange jasmine". I have carefully harvested and extracted the unique and lovely scents of these jasmines...Here, in Kaffir , they find a home. Vanilla, agarwood, galbanum and tarragon round out the sparkly perfume, which starts out fresh and aldehydic, and gently turns floral, then woody and settles into a rich, leathery dryout, a true surprise for a citrus perfume!
...for the quiet, inward spirit that yearns to enter the daily hustle and bustle. The sweet and candied Orange Essence Oil - made by distilling Orange juice plays with spicy cardamom to awaken the senses. Siam benzoin, ambrette seed tincture, aglaia flower, borneol crystals, rare and precious Chinese herbs and spices including cassia envelop and strengthen. The Oud base gently supports and connects the wearer to the deeper core that gives balance.
I will update with prices and concentrations when I can find them. (via Anya's Garden newsletter) Update: Kaffir is $45 for 3.5 ml Parfum, $80 for 15 ml Eau de Parfum. Temple is $60 for 3.5 ml Parfum.
