The idea for STRATIX, a multi-strategy fragrance, came to me while donning my leather hiking boots, then traveling through a dense forest, but at that point STRATIX was still not a complete idea. However, when I removed my boots after the hike, the soles still smelled of moss and earth and crushed leaves to the point that it unexpectedly approached an amber note. By sheer luck, at the same time I happened to be imbibing a post-hike electrolyte drink with a strong citrus wallop. That was the surprising final piece to my inspiration for STRATIX.
I have recreated the same feeling I had after my hike by featuring 35 million year old Himalayan amber (think Jurassic Park) and real artisanal Malaysian oud from Agar Auga, my favorite supplier when TWIS was an oud distributor.
Decidedly unisex, STRATIX can be worn both at work and for nights out on the town. This one will definitely get you noticed, as it casts an attractive and complex wide net around you.
Shipped in a gorgeous 50 ml hand-polished glass crystal bottle with etched golden TWIS logo, beautiful white pearlescent box and solid metal cap.
