Dryad is green, mossy, rich with a slightly retro feel, and very bohémien chic.
Dryad refers to mythical forest nymphs, and as the name suggests, it is a romantic green chypre with a retro feel. The perfume opens with vibrant galbanum and soft bergamot. Sweet herbed narcissus nestles with gilded jonguil. Apicrot and cedrat give warmth to the soft mossy, woody base.
Liz Moores was inspired by a poem that her daughter Jasmin wrote:
".....My body is swelling with the oak’s root and seed
Our veins and our vines weave together with ease,
And as your chatter dispels at the shake of our leaves,
You set your ear to our chest, to hear the whisper of trees.
We rise not in your throat, nor your mouth, nor your teeth.
But we streak coloured streams set to dazzle.”
When Liz visited us last year, we were privileged to have a pre-sniff of a forest nymph in the make... The end result is even better than we could have imagined, you did it again Liz, a gorgeous fragrance!
“When creating a perfume, I think of colours, textures and places. I imagine the people who may wear the fragrance and hope that the perfume will help them conjure their own unique and personal allusions.” - Liz Moores
