Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. — Henry David Thoreau.

A hero ingredient is surrounded by your choice of essences. In summer create a floral perfume and choose an alchemic direction to suit you e.g. fresh, citrus or fruity. In contrast in winter it will be a spicy and you can choose between a woody, floral, earthy direction. In Autumn, start with an ambery resin and in Spring something green and minty.
