Stephan Matthews: St. Paul’s opens with a rush of bergamot and pear that gives an expansiveness, but very quickly a cardamom touched jasmine appears and adds the florality of altar offerings. The floral is wonderfully enveloping and bends, rather than succumbs, to what follows. The resinous aromas of labdanum and tolu balsam combine with notes of sandalwood and cedar to give a waxed wood quality. However, the expansiveness again returns thanks to an exquisitely balanced vetiver and patchouli pairing that adds a dryness to the scent. With a final cloud of sweetened frankincense, this baroque inspired scent really is a fragrance to worship.- https://www.stephanmatthews.com/2020/04/st-pauls-by-exaltatum-london.html
