    Aedes De Venustas - 16A Orchard - Eau de Parfum
    In 16A Orchard earthly materials become airy. Ginger raises questions, throws you off course. Iris brings you back into focus as it reveals cold yet delicate qualities. Quince and muguet amplify the roots. Dry cedarwood and cashmere-like tonka create a spicy, dry roundness for more ephemeral notes of bergamot, lemon, cardamom, and jasmine.
    The perfume was commissioned to celebrate Aedes Perfumery’s reinvention and move to 16A Orchard Street, on New York City’s ‘Lower’ Lower East Side, a vibrant area that attracts a hip and diverse crowd, where galleries, skaters, cafes, and small, exclusive shops create crackling energy and excitement. Not just a smell, but a feeling. Something that is nurtured and then grows. “I aimed to create a sense of emotional wellbeing through a simplistic fragrance structure,”says perfumer Frank Voelkl. “The use of ingredients extracted from natural roots like ginger and iris tie us back to our earth, making us feel grounded and centered." But rather than recognizing a single note or fragrance category, 16A ORCHARD presents as a bit of a mystery. ‘You don’t know what to make of it right away, and that’s what makes it interesting,’ says Aedes de Venustas’ founder Robert Gerstner. ‘You can’t put your finger on it. That’s also the essence of the Lower East Side. It teaches you to think —and live—outside the box.’
