Imagine four hand-carved wooden boxes, inlaid with opals, brought to Britain from the tropics, sandalwood, cedarwood, white oudh and Buddhawood, with a hint of coconut and rum.

A couple of years ago we discovered Australian Buddhawood, and made The Buddhawood Box, a fragrance so woodsy that some people adored it and others throught it was like being hit on the head with a finely worked Aussie cricket bat. We started again, and Bodhi Language was the result. We still use Buddhawood, and cedar, sandalwood and white oudh to make it. We add rum extract and creamy musks, an aroma compound named Cedramber, because it smell like amber and cedar rolled in to one, a hint of vanilla, and then there's just a touch of the Earl Grey tea botanical, bergamot essential oil. It's softer and gentle, still with a whole tropical forest of woods, but as if they've been smoothed and polished, and served a nice relaxing rum cocktail.

"This is a massive hit for me, deliciously woody with a real coconut and rum vibe to start, it borders on gourmand territory for which Sarah is famous. As this dries down it becomes less sweet, but still maintains that unusual opening." - richard.legg

"Honestly, this isn’t going to be like much else you’ve smelled before. But in a totally good way! Perfect smooth, woody perfume with hints of rum and despite not being listed, I get hints of coconut. It’s so sleek and enveloping. It’s actually almost perfect. So unusual and so convincing. An instant love." - Gwizz
