In the Orient, women used to burn incenses, myrrh, and amber. It is an oriental, voluptuous vision the mythical raw materials improves a 114-elemental composition. A caravansary of scents, this hotly herbal fragrance intensifies the natural sensuality of grey amber.
Thyme is a floral, dry fragrance that etches out the dry, high grasses surrounding this fragrant compound. Nutmeg is a sweet, nutty presence that smells of tree bark, heated under the burning sun. Rose is a clarifying scent, and along with the searing insight of geranium, these notes illustrate the high, bright blue sky that governs this idyllic scene. Sandalwood is reminiscent of freshly chopped wood, simultaneously bleeding a bright green scent, even while it turns dry and dusty, the better to be burned.
Cedar’s smoky sweetness stands in for the bewitching emanations forming above the chimney of this inn. Vetiver resembles the darkly sparkling, mineral-rich earth, in which this scent is grounded. The building set within this environmental action is the central gathering point for miles around, and exerts a magnetic pull on all beings in the vicinity. Built of amber, this resinous, core structure is an intense, yet softly comforting fragrance. Festooned with bushels of vanilla, great bulbs of tonka bean, glowing chunks of benzoin, and tremulous, fatty globes of musk, this amber-rich core is a remarkably comforting yet dynamic representation of this fabled note.
Bewitching, heady, charming, this spicy, herbal oriental is an androgynous, unique, addictive signature.
