kicking in

Autumn is kicking in, cool damp morning air and foggy blankets covering trees that fight with their last blast of colours the approaching monotony of wintertime. It is time again for tea (or coffee as you like) to fight post-summer depression, to bring home summer flowers from abroad, to eat chocolate and to find comfort in warming scents.

It is time again for my green and black pepper, my cardamom and coriander and my cinnamon. I have a CO2 extracted cinnamon bark from Eden Botanicals which really is sizzling hot, lasting, woody, soft and spicy at the same time, the harshness reduced by a crust of sweet brown sugar. It is a severely restricted oil, due to cinnamon aldehyde being on IFRA’s list of do-not’s on a high scale, restricted as a matter of fact to levels where you do not really want to work with it anymore in perfumery. But still, I like to engage with this Indian soul smoothing concentrate, to sit with it watching its beauty, even if it is on a very abstract level without being allowed to find a place where it would find its deserved attention.
