Imagine you walk into the home office of an architect. The ceiling is high, and sunlight enters gracefully through a large sash window. You can smell the fresh paper, warm tea and the smooth remnants of a sandalwood candle that was glowing the night before. The walls are off-white, the floors are brushed timber, the leather desk chair is grey, and the table is made of pale beach wood. The tones are clean, minimal, yet you can sense the quality and purpose of each piece. It is a balance of harmony and textures. A Ryuichi Sakamoto piece of music effortlessly waltzes in the background, bringing a sense of calm and cool stimulation.

Gris Charnel effortlessly weaves minimalist tones with a plethora of textures, made with confident yet thoughtful strokes. Cardamom is cold and bracing like fresh air coming through the open window. The tea is steamy, bitter, and dry, with the texture of soft velvet. Fig brings a sunlight warmth upon the white creamy walls and a monstera houseplant in the corner. Iris is soft and leathery, warmed by the scent of skin resting upon it. Sandalwood fills the air with its sensual and soft notes. Vetiver encapsulates the fresh woody furnishings and the grounded nature of the environment. Tonka bean sweetens with time, warming up during the day, taking you into the sunset hour like a sidelamp’s dim glow takes over from the sunshine. With each passing moment you become more and more cosy in this creative environment. Gris Charnel strikes like an ambiance for an artist to conceive a great idea. Each note caresses you like an inspirational thought. Gris Charnel is a canvas, making the wearer the masterpiece.
