CONTRE BOMBARDE 32
Contre Bombarde 32 is a paean to the centuries-old aromas of resins, wax, and old wood ingrained in the ancient organ at Notre Dame. The sharp, resinous topnotes of bitter orange peel, elemi, and juniper captures perfectly the smell of unburned resins and wet stone that lingers in gloomy European cathedrals. Musky, spicy cedar wood supplies the almost animalistic scent of old wood that rises from the grain of wooden church pews when rubbed. A smoked toffee amber brings up the rear, giving us a surprising flourish of sweetness that somehow totally works. A brooding, atmospheric scent that balances the rough with the smooth, Contre Bombarde 32 could well be the Heathcliff of incense fragrances.
