When you wear a Neela Vermeire Créations scent, you can count on at least two things: a superb fragrance of carefully constructed complexity, and a deeply considered inspiration that pulls from the rich spiritual and intellectual history of India. Trayee ("TRY-ee"), a beautifully meditative scent, represents India's Vedic period, which lasted for 1,000 years and spawned the Vedas, the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. Trayee captures it all: the intricate rituals and temple ceremonies, ayurveda, the universe of yoga, and the holistic quest for knowledge. It is gloriously complex, with notes rising and falling and swirling like waves over many hours. Vermeire has called Trayee "an act of deepest reverence for the traditions of the mother country," and spraying it feels less like "putting on a perfume" than anointing oneself with something sacred that weaves the mysteries of the past into the present. Notes include blue ginger from Madagascar, elemi oil, cinnamon bark, ganja effects, blackcurrant absolute, Sambac jasmine absolute, Egyptian jasmine absolute, cardamom absolute, clove, saffron, sandalwood, Javanese vetiver, Haitian vetiver, incense, Mysore sandalwood oil, patchouli, myrrh, vanilla, cedar, amber notes, oud palao from Laos, and oakmoss.
Neela Vermeire was once a lawyer who was passionate about art—until she decided that passion was a better way to live. She began Perfume Paths, a series of guided tours through the exclusive perfume boutiques of Paris, to share her deep knowledge of the industry and its history. When Neela decided to launch her own line, she turned to Bertrand Duchaufour, one of the world's most sought-after noses, to create three scents that capture the rich culture and history of her native India. As creative director of Neela Vermeire Créations, Neela has received critical acclaim for the rich, chaptered stories that slowly unfold from each perfume in her line.
