It is great when your story begins in the fall. Fall has special philosophy and slow motion, rich in colors and smells. Fall brings much drive and fun – live fire of wild grapes in the garden, juicy late apples, tanned hazelnuts, smarmy mists and lonely cries of wild geese reaching for the summer. The story of Acidica Perfumes began with Misty Samhain perfume in 2011. Its first name "Spring" was changed after this perfume revealed its trickster true nature and twisted reality with the tornado of fallen leaves, mist and smoke.
Take a chance to get to the forest in the end of October. Let the train bring you to a distant station, get off the platform to nowhere. Follow the path to quiet, tired and sleepy forest. Smell the air thoroughly. Wet wood, smoke of invisible fire, fallen leaves, random mushrooms. All these smells are strange and uncommon for city dweller. The coming winter smells of cold wind, it breaks in your memory, bewitches, makes you return again and again trying to catch the elusive. This is how the border between worlds feels like: in silence, in the right place in the right time. Так ощущается грань - в тишине, в правильном месте в правильное время. Misty Samhain is about this unusual and unique feeling.
Why Misty Samhain? Samhain is special. A bridge between worlds of living and dead, passage between two halves of the year. The point where reality meets magic. Don't be afraid of Samhain, it is inevitable. As all pagan holidays, this is the turn of the Wheel of the Year. It takes away all excess and lived and opens the way for snowy winter.
If you go to the forest on Samhain, you'll see mist there. The earth is letting out the last warmth, it smells of wet leaves, moss and wood bark. The trees hide their nude trunks in cold opalescent milk, silence gives the idea of upcoming winter. Perfume about Samhain can't be playful. It is rich, complicated, tarn as tasty air of the fall. Strange and thrilling, as the premonition of winter. Clary sage, oakmoss, galbanum and castoreum create the atmosphere of Samhain, grapefruit and bergamot fill the forest with mysterious cold mist.
