Carriacou Nutmeg – Grenada Pavilion
“I built this fragrance around the Nutmeg Oil Benaiah provided me, sourced directly from GCNA in Grenada. An incredibly layered material, bright and loud, tart and crisp, before turning roasted and gravely in texture. I made a response, using other materials sourced from the Caribbean : Bay Leaf from Jamaica, Vetiver from Haiti, as well as supporting elements of Cumin, Lavender, Basil, and Olibanum. The nutmeg character is surrounded by a warm and humid climate, opening with it’s green, fruit-housed form, before drying and warming in the sun. Multifaceted yet unified, mirroring the olfactory aesthetics of a diasporic palette.” – Ezra-Lloyd Jackson
