He walks along the long wooded pathway and a strange light shimmering with gold appears. Suddenly, the skies darkens, rainfall drops on his skin pushed by a slight breeze. Silhouettes form behind him and he realises he’s being followed. A sweet and melodious chant almost surreal emerges. Behind this wall of Jas mine flowers is a fairy. She is laying on the water, her golden hair caressing the stream. He is fascinated and approaches her to collect drops of this precious elixir. But before night falls, he must leave. These woods are as gorgeous as they are mysterious.
“ The original idea was to create a perfume with oriental nuances, with loads of vanilla, an addictive side given by fruity and full notes like dhavanam. The voyage in the East is represented by the effect of the Somalian incense and myrrh which denote mystic. When you wear this fragrance, you feel a bit like a Prince or a Princess of the East in a beautiful and sumptuous palace. The absolutes of Egyptian jasmine and Turkish rose are in tribute to the oriental characteristics of that part of the world. Notes of tobacco and liqueur essentially come from the dhavanam and cypriol nagarmotha which give a retro feel.”
