One of the 2 precious numbered extracts in the Cineres Collection.
Ignes is composed with the rarest materials of top quality: absolute of tobacco, Peru balsam from El Salvador, Indonesian patchouly, French labdanum absolute, Bourbon vetiver, and Mysore sandalwood among others.
It’s a smoky woody blend with focus on spicy tobacco set in a company of chocolatey patchouli, creamy smoky Peru and spicy earthy vetiver. The romantic concept of the perfume is the ambiance of the nocturnal rite of Faugni taking place before the winter solstice in the village of Atri (the home of Angela Ciampagna).
Also in the Rare Resins: Elemi, Peru&Tolu edit and sample pack.
The Sniff on Inges: "The first impression we got from Ignes was of rum, or whisky – some dark, fiery spirit all concentrated and clinging to the sides of a glass. Soon thereafter the scent thickens and becomes chewy and sweet, almost sickly in tone, really syrupy. This happened very quickly for us when we tested this scent, over the space of a few minutes at most. To get what we mean here imagine the difference between red wine and port; it’s that change in viscosity, in concentration, in sweetness that we are eluding to and that’s what it is like to experience Ignes."
