Korrigan Eau de Parfum
Caramel Wood Liqueur.
Perfumer Thomas Fontaine first of all imagined a tree for Lubin, to be called Caramel Wood. Its sap would be sweet like English toffee, but with tangy accents of wild apple, juniper and saffron, to answer for some of its mystery. He wanted a note of leather yet appetizing, smooth like a whiskey cream liqueur, yet smoky, fragrant and slightly bitter like superb pure malt.
Top: Juniper berry, saffron, cognac.
Middle: Lavender, ambrette, whiskey distillate.
Base: Cedar, oudh, leather, vetiver, musk.
The story of Korrigan:
In the Armorican countryside the Korrigans frolic at night. They come to harvest juniper berries and wild beechnuts. Then, in dark caves, they distill barley into spellbinding spirits, spicing them with saffron, musking them with ambrette, scenting them with lavender. During the solstice festivals, they all drink their elixirs out of leather pouches, causing bodies and souls to capsize.
