Berlin-based indie natural brand April Aromatics has launched Ray of Light, a new unisex perfume.
Picture a classical still life: citrus fruits surrounded by mint leaves, a pipe on the side - this is how an artist would capture this fragrance in a painting. Ray of Light - messenger of lucidity and love - a scent, ethereal, fresh, suffused with brightness and thus bringing serenity even in our darkest moments and interacting directly with our solar plexus. The soul of the perfume is lemon, which in various cultures symbolizes the heart. "Ray of Light is a metaphor for the sweetness of life. Savor the aroma of fresh citrus fruit, full of lemons, lime, pink grapefruit, oranges and bergamot conjuring up light's intense brightness." A delicious verdant harmony of mint and galbanum joins the sunny splendor, complementing the rich citrus juice with a balance of wild greens. The base comes from vetiver and aromatic blond tobacco, bringing the desired depth to bind the light citrus essential oils, like memory capturing magical moments.
April Aromatics Ray of Light can be found now at Luckyscent, $225 for 30 ml Eau de Parfum.
