Al Sahra by The Different Company is serene and light, ambivalently cold/warm oriental, created by Emilie Coppermann. I’m wearing it on a magnificent summer day, full of contrasts:
Sun is at its zenith, and summer heat at its peak, but after the big summer storm, the wind is unusually cold, and almost feels icy. Above me – crystalline, cloudless, baby blue sky.
Skin exposed to the piercing heat and piercing freshness, sensing both at the same time.
On me, Al Sahra amps the metallic, a bit salty and dry facets mingling through the cinnamony, balsamic warmth, while light incense delicately rises from the resinous and woody heart.
The notes: Mineral Accord, Salt Crystals, White Violet (top), Sand Lily, Cinnamon from Madagascar (middle), Incense, Cistus Labdanum, Patchouli, Sandalwood (base).
