L'aime De Travancore - The soul of Travancore
The Kingdom of Travancore was located at the extreme southern tip of the Indian subcontinent. The capital of Travancore was Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), which is the capital of Kerala. fter Indian independence, Travancore and Cochin (now Kochi) merged to form the state of Travancore-Cochin; boundaries were redrawn, and it was renamed Kerala in 1956.
What does Trivandrum smell like?
It is a combination of sea breeze, that carry scents of spices, flowers like Jasmine, Rose merged with lovely roots and herbs, swaying through the coconut trees and moving to the luscious green misty mountains. There is sweetness and warmth in the air. I have captured the smell scape of Trivandrum into L'aime de Travancore - The soul of Trivandrum for you to experience its smells-scape and truly evoke magical feelings and memories within you.
In the perfume: Choya nakh, sandalwood, jasmine sambac, Indian Khus, orris, nutmeg, rose, beewax, shea butter
(Unlike in the rest of India, in Travancore (and the rest of Kerala), the social status and freedom of women were high. In most communities, the daughters inherited the property (until 1925), were educated, and had the right to divorce and remarry. Travancore was known for its relatively high literacy rate and its progressive government.)
Smell Scaping Series
This perfume is part of my art project called Smell Scaping locations.
This perfume is captured in a solid base contained in an antique pretty metal casing. (like the pomades, special art perfumery what the elite and royals once collected). It has the essence and soul of Travancore within it that will make you travel to a distant exotic land through the experience it renders your senses.
