    Slow Explosions

    by Imaginary Authors

    In 1980, Gwen K. Vroomen quit a monotonous job, went to the corner bar, and – on the bartender’s urging – threw a dart at a world map tacked on the wall. She had never heard of Goa, but she knew immediately she needed to go. Three months later she was celebrating Hindu New Year at a tea garden high in the hills of Kerala, fireworks exploding below. She wrote of that night: “I was resuscitated by color, redeemed by the vibrant unknown.” Her self-proclaimed “Journey Out of Darkness,” dotted with unforgettable stories of night markets, river floats, and harrowing moped rides, inspired a generation of young Americans eager to buck the drudgery of ordinary life.
     
    With pops of rose and hits of saffron, this scent explodes on the skin and awakens the senses. Every inhale will open you up to the idea of escape, push you to take risks, and embolden you to get truly lost.
     
    NOTES: Saffron, rose absolute, leather, apple, benzoin, cashmeran, Arpora night market

    1. For the Niche Lovers 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 26th May 2021

      Slow Explosions is one of those fragrances that will excite the niche enthusiast. Opening up with a very spicy saffron, Slow Explosions plays with the senses, and creates and almost sour accord. One may attribute this to an apple-like aroma. The fragrances smooths out to a warm leather, with soaked saffron and spices on top. Not for the faint of heart!


    2. A Lovely Spiced Rose 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 4th Nov 2016

      A sample was included in my recent order, and I decided to wear this to a business meeting. It's very similar to Rose Oud by Killian and is a steal as a dupe. That being said, I don't find it to be unique or a showstopper.

      This is a non offensive, long lasting, pretty and feminine rose. It goes on as a smoky rose jam and stays consistent throughout wear. I sprayed at 8 am and it lasted til 5 pm, which is impressive for my absorbent skin. I can see this being a lovely first date, workplace or casual outing scent.
