Suma Oriental is a fragrance deeply rooted in the rich history and exotic allure of Southeast Asia, drawing inspiration from the enlightening writings of Tomé Pires. His detailed accounts in Suma Oriental not only unveiled the origins of sandalwood in the Sumba islands but also painted a vivid picture of the region that captured the imagination of perfumers for generations. This historical backdrop sets the stage for a fragrance that is as much a journey through time as it is a sensory exploration.

 

The scent opens with an intriguing blend of top notes: cypriol, rum, and cocoa. Cypriol provides a woody, slightly spicy aroma that introduces the fragrance with an earthy depth. Rum adds a warm, sugary, and slightly boozy quality that enhances the richness of the scent, evoking the spirit of ancient maritime adventures across the East Indies. Cocoa brings a bitter, chocolatey note, adding a luxurious and comforting warmth that invites deeper exploration.

 

At the heart of Suma Oriental is patchouli, a note renowned for its rich, earthy, and musky character. Patchouli stands alone in the heart, commanding the center stage with its intense and captivating presence. It embodies the lushness of the Southeast Asian landscapes, conjuring images of dense, green undergrowth and the dark, mysterious depths of the tropical forests.

 

The base of the fragrance is a complex and sophisticated blend of woods and sweetness. Sandalwood, known for its creamy, soft, and rich woody scent, connects back to the historical context of the fragrance, adding a layer of aromatic depth. Tonka bean introduces a hint of vanilla-like sweetness with almond undertones, providing a soft, gourmand finish. Cashmere wood and guaiac wood layer additional woody notes that are both smooth and slightly smoky, enriching the base with their elegant and refined textures.
