The idea of SYMBIOS came to me while hiking through a forest, but it was tweaked when I had a family gathering where I gathered in the narcotic smells of fresh tobacco, elderberries and tangerine. Indeed, these are the natural ingredients which sets SYMBIOS apart from the rest of the synthetic tobacco perfumes currently being sold in the market. I then added natural Ta'if rose, a first quality distilled ylang ylang and several musks to knock SYMBIOS out of the park. There are over 60 ingredients in all of my fragrances and they are complex, but there is nothing on the market today that even approaches SYMBIOS.
It was during a family gathering four years ago when I began to consciously process the fragrance notes that surrounded me. At the time, I was overwhelmed by them, but I grew to be able to separate them and recreate not only the scents, but the feelings they evoked in me. I am now entirely conscious of the olfactory stimuli that surrounds me, and that is why I can no longer walk through department fragrance departments and other mall stores selling "fragrances" as auxiliary products. To me, they all smell like one gigantic synthetic molecule, which of course they are.
SYMBIOS was one of my test groups' favorites, but it was followed closely by the other four extraits I have released. Long after you apply SYMBIOS and can no longer smell it, others who enter the room you're in will comment how nice it smells. It's happened many times to my testers. As with most fragrances, this extrait smells different on everyone depending on body chemistry, mood and external factors such as temperature and humidity.
