Hey Posse! Now we have a model new fragrance home from Australia. Very small. My lovely buddy Roxana Villa launched me to the proprietor Amanda Thompson (nearly). I requested her to ship me a pattern. Beneath the strict concept that if I liked her perfume I might write about it,. Something much less and I might not. No burgeoning firm wants a beat down. With fragrance being so intensely subjective I didn’t even need to do an “It’s lovely however not my factor” put up both. She did and I’m writing. Phew!
If in case you have solely ever smelled division retailer or mall perfume then Ulysses might be an olfactory revelation. It’s far faraway from that very common public, simple to market, money seize stuff. This may increasingly shock and even even repel you at first as a result of in comparison with most of what you’re used to this can be a residing, respiratory, aromatic reflection of Mom Earth.
From the model:
Ulysses is the identify of an Australian blue butterfly. (Additionally) the Roman identify for Odysseus, the protagonist of the traditional Greek delusion, ‘The Odyssey’, which represents a narrative of 1’s journey again dwelling and the way every lesson realized alongside the best way brings one nearer to our important nature. As the primary SIUNO perfume, it represents the birthing of a brand new world manifested from aware creation. Ulysses is a reminder of the divine presence and magic in all of life, and a name to embrace and tune into it.
Being a purist at coronary heart and realizing the best way that scent interacts with our minds, our bodies and spirits, I grow to be curious to study extra in regards to the world of botanicals. That is the place I encountered, perfumer Roxana Villa. Inside our first dialog, the synchronicities between us had been very obvious. Precisely a yr after that dialog in the course of a pandemic, I made a decision to comply with my instinct and journey to Santa Fe, New Mexcio (AKA The Land of Enchantment). It was right here in Roxana’s perfumery our first signature scent Ulysses was realised.
We solely use important oils, co2 extracts, absolutes and resins to create our fragrance synergies. We adhere to the Worldwide Fragrance Foundations requirements for pure perfumery.

Ulysses glows! The opening is inexperienced shot via with resinous woodiness. It’s a beautiful humus wealthy forest ground in heat dappled daylight as you wander by or via with pals. It takes some time for the sweetness of the citruses to make themselves recognized over the final extravaganza of the remainder of the notes.
As the primary fireworks subside I’m left with a citrus sweet-ish amber, minimize via with shafts of earthy/twiggy vetiver and it additionally smells rather a lot like patchouli hiding within the shadows. The guts even has eucalyptus references and I’m questioning if it’s the dry minty abrasiveness of the Aussie sandalwood because it settles in. One other factor that isn’t named however I’m certain there’s a dose of is galbanum. That fabulous clear inexperienced resin that makes every thing much more beautiful.
A crew of us Sydney fragrance peeps had been sniffing this collectively and Jocelyn stated she may odor the clary sage clear as day. All of us sort of shrugged so she went and grabbed a few of it and all of the sudden the sunshine went on. How wonderful to have the ability to be aware the be aware. Ulysses was a unanimous hit.
As we head in the direction of dry down ulysses turns into a smooth wash of inexperienced woods and creamy woods, yeah I don’t understand how each of them run so seamlessly in parallel however they do.
Completely unisex, projection and longevity are average. An ideal perfume for somebody tired of the common and able to put on one thing new and earthy. Roxana Villa has accomplished a ravishing job creating this aromatic jewel.
How does Ulysses sound to you?
