My inspiration for this perfume is the Flame Of The Forest, a tree I remember fondly from my childhood in India.

Flame Of The Forest is a tall tree, standing prominently, dominating other trees in a landscape. Sometime around February, it blooms with brilliant orange flowers.

I have a strong memory of walking barefoot under this tree. All around my feet, the ground was covered with orange, velvety petals. I could barely see the soil. I gathered armfuls of wilted blooms and put them in my frock. At the end of the day, my hands were stained bright orange.

Flame Of The Forest perfume captures the dry, brown wood of the branch, the smoke and flame this name conjures, and the raw feel of the bare branches. A shock of spice highlights the bright presence of this tree.

While making the perfume, I evaluated between Black Pepper and Pink Pepper and preferred the latter as was more floral, and less intense which is what worked best with other strong elements. Bay Leaf added a spicy touch to it too.

This composition has two cedarwoods -- Himalayan Cedarwood and Texas Cedarwood.

The heart of this perfume is Champaca CO2. A divine flower so fragrant that a single flower's fragrance can permeate the whole room. However, by the time the essence of this flower is distilled into an extract, the facets change. In this composition, I felt that Champaca gave warmth without making it floral.
