“However he who dares not grasp the thorn
Ought to by no means crave the rose.” ~ Anne Bronte
The lily has a easy stalk,
Won’t ever harm your hand;
However the rose upon her brier
Is woman of the land.
There’s sweetness in an apple tree,
And revenue within the corn;
However woman of all magnificence
Is a rose upon a thorn. ~ Christina Rossetti, The Rose

“Dusting my rosewood sculptures at midnight attic, they nonetheless odor pretty and chic. Their shadows dance with the evening lights whereas the cembalo is taking part in. The wallpaper is outdated, however it’s the good canvas for all our day by day ideas. It’s nearly time to depart, I have to get up quickly. In spite of everything this rain, I’m certain spring will likely be stunning.” ~ Maria Teresa Venezia of In Fieri Palissandro.
There is probably not many readers who would acknowledge that cembalo is a shortening of clavicembalo – mid 19th C. Italian for harpsichord, for instance – derived from medieval Latin clavicymbalum. The type of lucid dreaming described right here calls to thoughts the common fairy story of Briar Rose – in any other case generally known as Sleeping Magnificence, La Belle au Bois Dormant, or Dornröschen, through which an toddler princess is cursed by a resentful fairy (she was excluded from the celebration of the long-awaited princess’ start) to sleep for 100 years earlier than being woke up by a brave and good-looking prince. As a result of In Fieri Palissandro embodies, for me – this legendary account – I’ll discover the fragrance via the time-honored lens of fantasy.
The Briar Rose by Edward Burne-Jones
Nobody could precisely handle oral historical past, as tales are handed from lips to ears and lips once more over the passage of time – however the earliest recorded makes an attempt to commit the story of Briar Rose to paper hearken again to the Center Ages. Perceforest, written between 1330 and 1344, was the primary chivalric romance of which we conscious, adopted intently by a Catalan poem, Frayre de Pleasure e Sor de Paser (Brother of Pleasure and Sister of Pleasure). The beloved creator Charles Perrault tailored it and printed it in his famend Histoires ou Contes du Temps Passé in 1697 – which was then retold as Dornröschen (Little Thorn Rose) by the Brothers Grimm of their 1812 publication of fairy tales (which they gathered from many nations). Thus magnificence, jealousy, revenge, and the triumph of excellent over evil stays an ever-present theme. The thorniness of Palissandro resembles the waging of discord between opposing factions: therein lies its power and thriller, as distinction between olfactory references helps foster a sure fascination.
In Fiere Palissandro is a really potent, if considerably linear libation. I odor the metallic singularity of blood spilled within the efforts to succeed in past a thorny thicket of rose spines to the place the dormant princess lies – maybe interpreted as rose oxides. It resembles blood upon metal. The roses themselves are portrayed from a number of angles: mineralic, taut, natural/floral (geranium), dusty and loamy (patchouli) – each blooming and long-neglected. One is overcome by tender melancholy, a secret sorrow lengthy held within the bosom away from prying eyes (not in contrast to the princess). It feels intuitive that the rose is surrounded by woods – and the presence of haunting musks serves to accentuate this impression. There’s a lingering sense of expectancy which prevails all through the fragrance. Regardless of its reference to palisander, aka rosewood – this isn’t my first impression. Palissandro is an summary perfume, not a strictly representational one – an amalgam of unearthly reminiscence.
“A number of the most stunning issues value having in your life come wrapped in a crown of thorns.” ~ Shannon L. Alder
