“Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Le Mat explodes with sweet earth, heaven-sent patchouli anchoring a sensual chypré homage of rosa centifolia from Grasse, the strange complexities of immortelle, cloves, black pepper and Egyptian geranium. A talisman of balsamic blessed absolution that will boldly defend mind and body.
A perfume of divination and tarotology. Le Mat, the Fool, Jester and Journeyman, also a symbol of chance, enigma and propulsion, end and beginning. It’s a card of 0 and XXII, a powerful icon of the Major Arcana, cards of symbols and numbers that portend future and fate. We must turn over cards and accept fate, walk forward into new futures, lives and loves. We may not have all the tools for survival, but we have hope and defiance.
