HYLNDS - Bitter Rose, Broken Spear
Brand D.S. & Durga
The legendary Red Branch knights of the Ulster Cycle were said to have made their way through the wilds of prehistoric Scotland, bravely facing a myriad of trials along the way. Armed only with the iron weapons on their backs, they rode through impassable terrain, and marveled at the rugged, desolate beauty. Bitter Rose, Broken Spear is the fragrance of their adventure.
Stark and naturalistic, Bitter Rose, Broken Spear presents exactly what it describes- crisp, tart wild rose, the aromatic freshness of native herbs and shrubs, and an imposing, cool metallic tang of smelted iron. A base of growling amber smoothes, but never softens, the austere beauty of the composition. Like the knights for whom it is named, Bitter Rose, Broken Spear is from a time before gentility was even a concept.
