The heavy stone cap on the bottle of Opus_1144 is the opposite of what the formula represents, a soft smooth amber. Conceptually it makes sense though. 1144, was the year when word the ‘gothic’ was first recorded and also when the construction of the first gothic cathedral began. The stone cap represents that first corner stone of “gothic aesthetics”. However, the churches made of stone were merely the gates and sign posts of the spiritual quest to discover heavenly mysteries. Hence the formula of Opus_1144 is a quite a euphoric amber of almost infinite longevity. Who knows, maybe the steps to heaven are made of the amber aroma.
