Suma Oriental refers to the brilliant collection of writings by Tomé Pires, a Portugese apothecary who became ambassador to China in the 16th century. An intensely detailed description of an insular southeast Asia, Suma Oriental revealed for the first time that sandalwood originated in the Sumba, or modern day Indonesia. So it’s only fitting that Suma Oriental is a portrait of sandalwood in all of its rich dimensionality, a mesmerizing scent that pairs creamy, warm sandalwood with boozy rum, velvety patchouli, and powdery tonka to create a lushly seductive fragrance that hums with mystery and majesty. A robust cocoa note adds sweet, earthy complexity, while a gaiac-forward base of smooth woods supplement the sandalwood’s mouthwatering depth. Like Pires’ seminal work, Suma Oriental invites us to discover an exotic and captivating unknown world- don’t miss your opportunity.
