Description Bitter and green, wormwood is perhaps best known for flavoring absinthe, the storied alcoholic beverage favored by the writers, poets and intellectuals living in France in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Absinthe connotes an aura of mystery and its purported mind-altering properties have captured the public imagination. In Liquid Crystal, absinthe plays a central role. The fragrance opens with a burst of sweet lime and anisic lavender followed in short order by absinthe and vetiver. The absinth coaxes out the licorice-like facets of vetiver while the vetiver accents the earthy green aspects of the wormwood. The earthiness is further augmented by the addition of artemisia and patchouli. The fragrance dries down to a warm, ambery base of tonka bean and cistus labdanum.
