Inspired by the historic ride of Paul Revere and William Dawes in 1775 announcing “The British are coming!” Sandy Carr used this monumental moment in the American Revolutionary War as the muse for Midnight Ride. From the start you’ll get a sense of the damp wet earth beneath the horse’s hooves on this famous ride. Green and herbaceous notes of artemisia mingle with a freshly shaved nutmeg as you fall into a wooded path of conifers and evergreens and slightly smoked woods. While a leather note is not mentioned by the perfumer, we can sense its presence in the form of a proudly worn leather saddle by an American patriot.
Notes include artemisia, dewy grass, newly budding leaves, ivy, nutmeg, gurjun balsam, mysore sandalwood, virginia cedar, texas cedar, french cypress, blackwood, aphermate, animalis hypo, civetone, dry amber, and balsam fir.
