A homophone of the Turkish word for wood, Odoon by Pekji is an ode to wood where it becomes the main character, front, and center. Reflecting the simple beauty inherent in wood without prettifying it, Odoon effortlessly triggers the memory and awakens an instinctive respect.
“Odoon is the hyperwood. It’s a Platonic ideal of wood that connects at one end to the sky with a structure that is airy and floral. It connects at the other end to the Earth with dank root smells of vetiver and resin. It opens in the middle, a twisting forever of heartwood and, as it develops, a humanity. A clean mid-section emerges, like a tree shaved of bark or a torso casting off a t-shirt. This is a basic and unadorned perfume, a fundamental layer so to speak. Its complexity is simplicity. It grows as a tree might grow, without pretense and almost without awareness”. – a note from the perfumer.
