All That Shimmers
Sensual yet invigorating, As Sawira is a unique gem. Woody and sweet yet scintillatingly spiced and searing with citrus, this fragrance winds through various genres and provenances to a perfectly composed conclusion. Like a journey on the silk road, As Sawira connects and integrates diverse colors and flavors into one powerful form. Bergamot illuminates an especially davana, its woody floral sweetness glowing and growing stronger in the acid of the surge of citrus. This brilliance is mirrored in saffron's electric intensity, which simultaneously shines into and through the verdant, woody warmth of absinthe, making this herbal cocktail sing out, sweetly. Rose is enticed by absinthe's delectable soprano, slowly unfurling its satin smooth petals to reveal a ripe, ruby red interior. Alongside resplendent rose's emergent red berry qualities, jasmine is positively jammy, reminding us of the distinctive musty tang of peach. These fruity florals are nestled amidst such potent spice that their sugary sweetness is never overwhelming, but registers as a sunny, pleasant illumination. For instance, carnation and clove douse rose and jasmine in a kind of powdery camphoric calm that cools the flowers bubbling juices, while cardamom and labdanum espouse an easy shimmer that showers the blooms with a dewy fresh sense of spice. Amber and oud radiate a solid, lactic funk light that weights the base of As Sawira, so that it sits elegantly on skin. Just as this fragrance tips towards opulence a gust of sweet myrrh, searing sandalwood and smoldering cedarwood elevate the whole of As Sawira. Like a beautiful hot air balloon, As Sawira is at once aloft and definitively of earth, a man made testament to creativity, imagination and adventure.
