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 pipe tobacco, elderberries, autumn fruits and tangerine. Indeed, these are the natural ingredients which set SYMBIOS apart from the the synthetic tobacco-centric perfumes currently being sold in the market. I then added natural Ta'if rose, first quality distilled ylang ylang and several musks, taking SYMBIOS to an even higher level.
It was during that family gathering over 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.
While all fragrances smell differently on everyone depending on body chemistry, mood and external factors such as temperature and humidity, SYMBIOS seems to take sharper turns than most on different wearers. However, the words most often used to describe SYMBIOS have been addictive, smooth and sensual.
