Mayan incense, rising from age-old temples. Lashes of sea spray and whiffs of the jungle where the jaguar lurks… Copal Azur exhales the lush, spiritual vibes of sacred Tulum. Strikingly similar to frankincense, copal, whose name means “incense” in Nahuatl, can be extracted from a variety of trees native to Central and South America. And much like frankincense in Ancient Egypt or Greece, it was burned by the Mayans and Aztecs to “feed” the gods. Today, it is still used in Mexico for spiritual purposes. Just as a Mayan citadel looms over Tulum's lush beachside paradise, a steep, mineral cliff of incense dominates the olfactory landscape of Copal Azur. Since copal resin cannot be used as a perfume ingredient, three different extractions of frankincense are used to conjure it, making up an extravagant 30% of the formula. The perfume is best described using the vibrant hues of the Mayan Riviera! Blue is for the Caribbean Sea and the limpid depth of the cenotes, the subterranean fresh-water pools that riddle Yucatana; a cool breeze of ozonic and salty notes. Green is for the lush Mexican jungles; a flash of cardamom glinting in the moist, woody undergrowth of patchouli and myrrh. White is for the purest quality of copal and the pristine beaches of Tulum; a lick of almond-scented tonka bean smoothed into creamy notes. Finally, amber for the Jaguar God of Terrestrial Fire, the fire that burns the sacred copal. Hypnotic, spiritual and forceful, Copal Azur might well indeed open the “Gate to Heaven”!
Like any fragrance, one or two sprays around your neck and on your pulse points (areas where the body is warmer, such as the wrists, ankles, inside the elbows and behind the knees) from a minimum distance of 6 inches, then allow to dry without rubbing.
