    Aedes De Venustas - Corfu Kumquat - Eau de Parfum
    In Corfu Qumquat the Greek citrus fruit kumquat is paired with Calabrian bergamot, a bracing squeeze to signal the dawn of something new. The cedrat Calabrian bergamot, the star of Earl Grey tea, comes from the thick rind of the fruit. It brings a spiciness that is balanced by notes from tangerine, mandarin and neroli. Salty ambrox and mystical olibanum take us to the seaside landscape of Corfu island.
    Ginger, lavender, Granny Smith apple and rhubarb add a rounded fruitiness to the center. And Alaskan cedar, from a species of trees in the cypress family, vetiver, captive musks and tonka weave the dark background that unknowingly holds the citrusy cocktail together.
    When it came time for Aedes de Venustas founders Gerstner and Karl Bradl to envision a citrus scent that fit with their baroque style, they enlisted Greek perfumer Ilias Ermenidis, who immediately thought of his homeland, with all of its rich royal fascination and natural beauty. The perfumer describes ‘a unique and joyful emotion creating an accord so close to my heart, where kumquat from the island of Corfu marries with Calabrian bergamot and where salty ambrox and mystical olibanum are there to remind us which part of the world we are traveling to with our senses.’
