No. 19 Warm Carrot is designed around the daucus carota seed: an earthy, woody and warm note that is surprisingly familiar yet hard to pinpoint without the aid of the word “carrot”. This fragrance is round, complex, resinous and spicy. The resins add increased depth and a whiff of ancient lands, but the roasted carrot seed and subtle vanilla draw you back to the familiar. As with most of the Cognoscenti line, the muted floral notes serve only to anchor the ever-changing top and base notes allowing them free reign. Lavender and vetiver provide the sharp and smoky counterpoints to the carrot, just to make sure you aren’t lulled into a false sense of calm. Very wearable and truly unique.
Made in small batches by perfumer Dannielle Sergent in San Francisco.
Notes: carrot seed, ylang ylang, lavender, vetiver, labdanum, amber, benzoin and vanilla.
