"He borrowed some peripheral debris
From mystic visions; and it offered tips
(The amber spectacles for life's eclipse)—
How not to panic when you're made a ghost:
For we die every day; oblivion thrives
Not on dry thighbones but on blood-ripe lives,
And our best yesterdays are now foul piles
Of crumpled names, phone numbers and foxed files.
I'm ready to become a floweret.
Or a fat fly, but never, to forget."

— Vladimir Nabokov

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.
