Indie botanical line Roxana Illuminated Perfume has launched Cimbalom:
The fragrance has been named after the stringed instrument closely related to the hammered dulcimer. Like the exotic musical chordophone that can be found dating back to 3500 BC, melodic notes of jasmine with percussive beats of resinous amber and a flourish of citrus rind engage your senses.
Roxana chooses to craft her fine art botanical perfumes by utilizing a palette of whole essences produced by nature. Cimbalom is a rich floriental featuring Labdanum, Indonesian Patchouli, Indian Jasmine, Ginger and Orange. The fragrance contains a limited edition tincture of jasmine sambac blossoms from her woodland garden paired with three different jasmine absolutes. Generally associated with the planet Venus, jasmine also has a magical affinity with the Moon due to her watery, heavy, sweet fragrance combined with the aromatherapeutic properties of balance.
Roxana Illuminated Perfume Cimbalom is available in Parfum Extrait in a variety of sizes and formats, including solid perfume, and can be purchased at the Roxana Illuminated Perfume shop at Etsy. (via press release)
