"A brother asked Abba Olympios, the priest of the Lavra, for his most protected secrets, and this is what he said:

Do not consort with heretics, keep a fire always burning, and wherever you stay, say repeatedly to yourself throughout the night:

‘I am a stranger.’

I am a stranger.

I am a stranger."

— John Moschos

Matière Première

In French, matière première, or first material, is natural raw material, called so because it is the starting point for a fragrance, but above all because it is essential, primordial. All Apoteker Tepe fragrances begin with rare and unusual matières premières individually sourced from small-batch and sustainable producers all over the world.
