Gravitas is the heavy spice of candlelight and old books, arcanum and meditation. The fresh resin scent of a newly constructed canoe on a Polynesian island discovered and forgotten by sun-loved, traveling men and women centuries ago. Gravitas deepens, and deepens with, thought.
The spicy hesperidic impression of coriander, nutmeg, and mandarin orange are the brilliant beauty to rivet your attention, the instant you notice the sunlight has turned to fire, raining down upon you. As clouds foolishly attempt to shroud this divine beauty from human eyes, an explosion of color erupts as the cardamom and black pepper bite, and bay laurel bursts through, showing its strength. Finally, those last velvety moments of daylight as it fades to black are the benzoin, coffee, and Peru Balsam dry sweetness, the depth and finality as the world is off to sleep, to dream of all that has passed, starlight and serenity.
