Nature vs. Science: First came incense, sacred offering of woody spicy notes tying man to the mystical; then, the pure simple artifice of Ambrox and white musk Vulcanolide. A reconciliation of reason and belief. The play on contrast is immediately remarkable. Daphne Bugey reconciles the superficial world of intrigue with the profoundly sacred. Incense connects us to the early rituals of perfumed offerings to the skies and the gods. The presence of synthetic molecules transports us to the future.
