Dusita Erawan was launched in 2018, created by Pissara Umavijani. A woody aromatic unisex fragrance, it is named for a forest sanctuary in Bangkok, Erawan, named after the elephant god of kindness. The smell is the end of summer, the hay is in the barn, the nuts are starting to fall, a world still rich with green quietly going to sleep with nutty, soft, comforting smells.
Dusita Erawan has notes of herbal notes, petitgrain, lily-of-the-valley, Haitian vetiver, hay, clary sage, liatris (deertongue), cedar, oakmoss, vanilla and is an eau de parfum, EDP.
Take One Thing Off - "Erawan blends the rich, vanillic hay-like properties of liatris odoratissima (deertongue) with a nutty crown of vetiver, moss, and clary sage for a result that has the same sweet, pappy aroma of freshly-poured putty and earthy, uncooked grains....Suddenly, though, after a period of lingering in the cereals aisle, Erawan rips open one side to let a crisp, pond water muguet out of hiding, a move that surprises me since I am used to the cut glass green floral notes like narcissus and muguet appearing at the top of a perfume. The coumarin facets of the liatris emerge more strongly in the drydown, giving the scent the more recognizable character of lightly toasted tobacco leaves, dry hay, honey, beer hops, and dusty vanilla."
Basenotes - "A study in cool, pale greens, Erawan provokes a contradictory sense of place – its humidity and slight clamminess suggests shaded indoor spaces, while its bright lily of the valley and hay tones are redolent of fields of daydreams. Erawan’s season is clearly summer, but this is summer experienced from under a canopy of leaves maybe, with something refreshing and tinkling to drink to hand."
Fragrantica - "As per Pissara Umavijani, Erawan is a forest sanctuary in Bangkok named after the elephant god of kindness. To me this scent evokes the glow of dappled light playing behind closed lids as you nap under a tree after reading all afternoon. It smells like peace."
Fragrantica - "Overall, a wonderful study of hay and liatris. Elegant, gentle, but alluring. The overall imagine for me is a barn surrounded by autumn woods and harvested fields. Hay bales, small flowers, drying grass, trees with mossy bark, and filtered afternoon sun."
