Sourcing | Upcycled Cedarwood Atlas

At the heart of our latest fragrance, Vigilante, which is an unconventional and daring creation that plays with the hypnotizing dualities of light and dark is an unconventional raw material, upcycled cedarwood atlas, a uniquely luxurious and revolutionary aromatic wood material with a unique leather profile. 

With a commitment to sustainable innovation, Givaudan, our fragrance house partner behind this composition, has developed alternative sources of natural fragrance ingredients, exquisite new aromatic materials with an absolute respect for nature. A novel concept in the fragrance industry, Upcycling, also known as creative re-use, is the process of transforming side streams of raw materials to reveal new olfactive facets and offers significant environmental value to often resource-heavy perfume ingredients. 

Cedarwood Atlas Oil is an iconic perfumery material and the unique upcycled raw material in Vigilante is created through a method of collecting side stream dust from wood furniture making. Pushing the boundaries for sustainable creation in fragrance and beauty, our Cedarwood Atlas Absolute highlights new olfactive facets with an exclusive quality of a rich and sophisticated woody note, reminiscent of leather and fine marquetry, with subtle apricot and fig undertones.
