*Kazimi is a true “Oriental” so there are far fewer top notes than are found in classic rose perfumes. It can be called a Floriental and technically fits the definition of a soliflore as there are no other florals here besides rose. An overabundance of top notes would drown out the rose and interfere with the beauty of the vintage nature of the perfume. Just as a rose bush can live for hundreds of years, producing more fragrant and beautiful roses with each passing year, this perfume will continue to beautify with the passage of time. All of the rose notes in this perfume are 100% natural - this is unheard of in niche perfumery, where it is a universal practice to stretch natural rose oil with synthetics and isolates.
ABOUT THE NAME: Cazimi is an medieval astrological term which means “in the heart”. Cazimi is a Latin transliteration of the Arabic term kasmīmī, which means “as if in the the heart”. The Arabic term appears to be a translation of the Greek term egkardios, which literally means “in the heart”. Rose oil has a well known effect on the heart and the subtle bodies. Rose can adjust the patterning (spaces between beats) into coherence (sort of like music or chanting) to alleviate stress, depression and ignite self love. A universal symbol of beauty, natural rose perfumes have always been considered “sacred blends”. The blue rose is esoterically known as "The Druid's Rose" and it's appearance signifies the advancement of the inner alchemical mysteries.
