Kedu - Eau de Parfum 2.5oz

Kedu, nicknamed "the garden of Java" in Indonesia, is a plain bordered by a volcano. Its soil, which has been made fertile by the ash, is sacred.

Borobudur arises shrouded in mist, a site of prayer constructed on a magical square. Tradition has it that you can purify your soul by throwing sesame seeds—one seed for each passion—into one of its flaming domes. The burnt sesame aromas rise up to the heavens. The husky accents of the seeds, which are symbols of longevity, set the sparkling freshness of grapefruit alight.

It unfolds on contact with grapefruit, neroli, white musk and moss to form an enchanting spell. Sesame and grapefruit come together and merge like the landscape that inspired them, the high plain of Kedu. Nestled on the island of Java, at the heart of Indonesia, this land is fertile, luxuriant and volcanic in one.
