Palafitico by Comporta has sandalwood, oil and balsamic, smells that take us back to the universe of the beautiful Cais Palafítico de la Carrasqueira, with the wood beaten by the salt water. In the starting notes it has bergamot, lemon, grapefruit and… pepper. Another curious ingredient you don’t usually hear. In the heart: white tea leaves, orange blossom, iris and jasmine. For the base notes: sandalwood, amber, musk.
Cais Palafítico de la Carrasqueira, is a fishing village on the banks of the river Sado. It has a magical environment with wooden structures blackened by the sea that form a labyrinth of nostalgic beauty. The woody, salty, salty and bold atmosphere of the fishing houses of the Cais Palafítico.
If we are not in the right mood at the right time, we will not find our way through Palaeolithic. João Louro, artist.
