My inspirations for Gravity Plus were a visit to a barbershop in Princeton, a NY Giants football game, a local market and a leisurely hike through a field of blooming flowers. I stitched together my sensory inputs from these trips to formulate a very modern fougere that is surprisingly unisex with very high longevity.
I visit my local barbershop on an irregular basis due to both my demanding work schedule and my lack of hair. However, when I'm there I always pick up this amazing coalition of scents, from the Barbasol to the talcum to the hair products.
I do a lot of hiking through nearby farms and fields, so the irresistible smells of freshly cut hay and wildflowers are often wafting through the air. Also, I often visit my relatives near Phoenix, and I am fascinated by the lime and lemon trees they have growing in their backyard. There I am surrounded by the smells of beautiful citrus, both ripe and unripe.
My relatives have also tried planting some lavender, but the smell of these plants is much weaker compared to their citrus. However, the four different lavenders in Gravity Plus Extrait are 100% pure and natural from the Grasse region of France, and they are exquisite.
Finally, there was this guy at a rainy NY football Giants game who was sitting behind me. He smelled like he had just tended his garden, but I was intrigued by the earthiness and complexity of his aura. I concentrated on the emotions I had when smelling his shoes, which he was kind enough to lean on the back of my seat. Little does he know that the unintended consequence of his yard work was the final addition of earthy oud, cypriol and musks.
