Seawood is an adventurous and non-conformist perfume which a man (or a woman) of such nature will easily identify with.
Seawood has a balancing action and, lowering our gravity center, it allows us to react in life as a sailing vessel does, always able to regain its own balance thanks to the stabilizing weight of its load (i.e. obligations, commitments, duties of life).
Its sail (the intellect and the heart) captures the energy of the wind (the world of ideas and emotions) to transmit it to the wooden hull (the physical body) making it sweep along the free seas, with no weight and no strain, matter transported by matter, in perfect harmony.
This is what happens when that which tends to make us sink into the material life (duties to work and family) is counterweighted by that which tends to make us break off material life (idealism, spirituality, religiosity, artistry). Our gravity center is then situated under our buoyancy center, exactly like in the sailing ship. We sail on the sea of life only when that which in us is human counter-balances that which in us is animal, both being as necessary to us as the hull and its sails are to the ship.
This effect is due to the central element of the composition, the vetiver, extracted from a root which has an under-earthy scent, and which “acts upon every single Chakra and re-equilibrates it, besides redressing their whole apparatus, realigning them, starting from the Chakra of the base which it consolidates” (P. Davis).
This composition, with its deep and exotic fragrance, evokes sea woods and ancient ship storerooms, loaded with spices from far away islands (cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger and the precious ambergris, seasoned, sea woods drifted on the beach after a long travel in the open sea.).
Sea Wood is built around an accord of Vetyver, Patchouli and Frankincense. Patchouli has the ability to reconcile our physical and intellectual dimensions when they tend to clash, while Frankincense is the spiritual element that really balances and gives meaning to the fragrance.
We are ships sailing the sea of life. The sails (the intellect and the heart) captures the energy of the wind (the world of ideas and emotions) to transmit it to the wooden hull (the physical body) making it sweep over the seas, flowing freely, with no weight and no strain, matter transported by matter, in perfect harmony.
Ships do not overturn when the breeze blows because the weight of their ballast compensates the force of the wind on the sails.
The central element of the composition, the vetiver is the ballast of the fragrance. The hull is the Patchouli and the frankincense is the sails. The spices are the perfumes of the adventure of life.
Seawood is best worn on the chest, more precisely at the level of the solar plexus, where it will work like the bow of a ship, strengthening our ability to stand the frontal impact with situations.
