If you are as big a fan of the Australian beauty brand, Aesop, as me, their latest fragrance is bound to hit all the right notes with you. While Tacit is the second addition to the much loved brand, it is certainly second to none, following in the footsteps of Aesop’s first fragrance, Marrakech Intense.
Crafted in collaboration with perfumer Celine Barel*, this perfume is a work of art.
Wonderfully androgynous in its scent, Tacit incorporates the clean, powerfully uplifting freshness of the classic cologne, while carving out a fine balance with its likeness to the contemporary, quiet elegance of a feminine perfume. Perfectly wearable for any momentous occasion, the modern scent is also great for day-to-day wear.
Drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean coast’s rich culture, topography and perfumed vegetation, this perhaps best explains why Tacit is a refreshing green scent, and completely out of the ordinary. Like the rest of Aesop’s range, Tacit is an embodiment of all that is botanical, calming, natural, and earthy. There isn’t a tinge of artificiality, which is what I love about Aesop.
Crisp and citrusy, the aromatic fragrance also takes inspiration from the palatable and cleansing aroma of the yuzu fruit, a far cry from the ubiquitous scent of lemons.
True to its name, Tacit’s elusiveness is elicited upon the realisation that while Tacit is a citrus-based scent, it leans a little towards the warmth and spice, with its subtle notes of clove.
The smell evokes fond memories of warm summer nights, making Tacit the best scent to last you through the fall and winter. And if the transition between long summer nights and cool breezy beginnings of autumn had a signature scent to mark the curiousness in the changing weather, that scent would be Tacit.
Tacit Eau de Parfum (50ml, S$135.00) can be purchased online at www.aesop.com or at Aesop stores.
