Ponsa – Xanath

140

 Vanilla

Legend has it that Xanath was the daughter of Totonac nobles and lived in a beautiful palace. One day, Xanath was caught by the powerful gaze of a fat god, who then began to court her. Xanath managed to evade him for some time, but the more cunning god found a way to reveal his feelings for her and, after being rejected by her, threatened her. The witty fat god eventually gained the trust of Xanath‘s father in the hope of winning her over by using her father’s trust. The young Xanath tried to resist the God’s harassment, but her father forced Xanath to accept another date with him, but this date proved to be fatal, because when she rejected him again, he became so enraged that he cast a spell on her, transforming her into a delicate plant with white flowers and an exquisite aroma, the Vanilla. And so the legend of vanilla was born.

Notes: Vanilla, Himalayan Cedarwood, Myrrh, Benzoin, Ylang Ylang, Sweet Orange and Aldehydes.

Ponsa - Alejandro

In the 1960s Alejandro Ponsa‘s grandfather worked for a well-known brand of gin and wanted to found his very own spirits distillery. Those were difficult times and after several attempts he was unable to carry out the project. It was during this period when Alejandro had his first experiences with the art of distillation. Now, Alejandro continues with the art of distillation, but in a totally different sector, that of perfumes.

His is a personal project that began as a hobby. At a relatively young age Alejandro began to collect perfumes. This passion eventually led him into wanting to learn how to create his very own perfumes and niche brand.

His training in perfumery is self-taught and literally comes from his curiosity and the desire to learn something he really loves. Alejandro is passionate about nature and what can be learned from it. He has done a lot of fieldwork in the collection of plants, distillation and production of essential oils. He also had the opportunity to be mentored by a couple of perfume professionals in his hometown, Barcelona. It was during this time he discovered the incredibly wide range of raw materials and ingredients brought from all over the world.
