Roads Past | Presence is a 2016 Art and Olfaction Award Finalist in the Independent category. Released in 2015, created by Danielle Ryan and Jean-Charles Mignon, it has notes of bergamot, smoked black tea, jasmine and tonka bean and is part of the Africa Collection.
From the award entry "inspired by the dignity and clarity of contemporary Nigerian writers such as Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka. To reflect the venerable canon of Nigerian literature, scents that embodied strength, depth and precision are used and complemented by softer and more refined ingredients. Elegant top notes of bergamot and smoked black tea are blended effortlessly with classic jasmine whilst the softness and warmth of Tonka bean adds the perfect backdrop."
