If you've heard of the concept of 'terroir' it's probably been in relation to wine, but terroir's also an important part of understanding scent.
Where an ingredient is grown, the make-up of the soil, elevation & moisture all impart characteristic scent notes. A great example is the beautiful smell of vetiver. Steam distilled from the roots of a tall grass, we source vetiver from Java, Haiti, Indonesia and India. While Haitian vetiver is slightly sweet & resinous, Sri Lankan vetiver is more woody & smokey.
Helping you experience these sensory fingerprints is all part of what we want to do with our first Bodha perfume so keep a look out for more info coming soon.
