About the Fragrance:
Paro, ‘The Castle on the Jewel’ in local language, is located in the western part of the Kingdom of Bhutan. The Tiger’s Nest Monastery, built in 1692, sits on a 900-meter cliff face in the Paro Valley.
Around the monastery, coniferous trees cover the valley like guardians and messengers. As the temperature rises, the tree trunks shed golden tears and the resinous scent hovers in the mist. The serene smoky fragrance is like a prophecy of the secret world.
Walking deeper into the forest, the beehive on the cliff face emits a sweet, ambrosial scent that surrounds everything, colliding with the faint burning incense of the monastery. The sky powders the taiga, waving velvety down over the vert-de-bronze of the pines.
A blessed scent that drifts far away, through the green, through the dreams of last night. A dream of horses’ hooves on stone, leaving behind a fragrance that belongs there alone…
