The Elementary scent is inspired by one of the most famous private detectives in the literary fictional world, imagined by Scottish writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887 with the publishing of A Study in Scarlet. Sherlock Holmes’ ability to solve mysteries comes from his uncanny method of gathering evidence based upon his well developed skills of observation and deductive reasoning. One of Sherlock Holmes’ most famous quotes is, “When you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” Holmes is a brilliant, emotionally detached analytical machine whose literary character has been portrayed in film more times than any other literary character in history. So much so that devotees, fervently called Sherlockians or Holmesians frequently gather in societies all over the world to pay tribute to the master detective. Sherlock Holmes’ companion , biographer, flatmate, and friend, Dr. John H. Watson ensures that Holmes receives the credit and praise he deserves, but Holmes rebuffs praise and instead declares his abilities to be “elementary”, with the often quoted praise “Elementary, my dear Watson,” when in fact this phrase never actually appears in any of Doyle’s writings. What does a genius idea smell like? We thought that it has to be citrusy and energizing. An energizing burst of sweet, salty, and tart citrus along with ozonic airy top notes. Middle notes of tropical guava and juicy orange. Available in Elementary Scent and the Original Library scent.
