Blasted Heath by Penhaligon'sLike a powerful swell breaking against the shore, the top notes provide an invigorating wave of aquatic freshness. Enriched with salty seaweed reminiscent of oceanic spray, the aquatic accord is infused with the aromatic intensity of clary sage, adding contrast. In the heart, the fragrance meets the shore. Fresh with crunchy green leaves. Refined with the surprising transparent woodiness of Clearwood?.
Then texture develops with the tobacco and whisky accord. An assertive masculine character, strengthened by an authoritative woody signature. The warmth of patchouli and Alaska cedarwood blends into rough accents of gaiacwood and the earthy elegance of vetiver. Musks finally bring the ultimate sensuousness of this invigorating journey.

What is Clearwood?
Clearwood is a novel raw material created by Firmenichusing white biotechnology. Sugarcane is fermented with bioengineered yeast. The resulting product is then distilled, creating a contrasting natural material.
Smelling at once of light, creamy amber and the dark woodiness of patchouli, yet without the earthy quality, it is both sheer and textured, providing a back-bone to a perfume’s structure as well as addictive and modern chypre elements.
