Inspired by the greatness of the Angkor civilization, the entire composition was built around the gold, with its two facets, so opposed, but yet so complimentary: the cold aspect of the metal is represented here by the fruit and spice combination, especially the pink pepper, in opposition, but in perfect harmony, with the saffron and its warmth, the whole being sustained by an exquisite dominating accord of pure Cambodian Oud.

Artistic Director's Word
THE SPLENDOUR AND OPULENCE OF THE GREAT ANGKOR CIVILIZATION
“Garuda is a protective divinity, half man-half eagle. “Lord of Birds” known for accompanying Vishnu OR Krishna in the fight against the evil, he is a very important figure in the Hindu and Buddhist religions. An impressive number of Garuda sculptures ornate the temples of Angkor, the gigantic site “petrified” in the jungle. The most impressive representation is found in a gallery of Angkor Watt, its bas-reliefs being decorated with dozens of them. At the sundown, the gallery is bathing in the sunlight, all the statues appearing as covered in gold… Is this very golden, splendid picture depicted in this perfume. The entire composition, build around exquisite accord of Cambodian Oud, evokes the gold, with its two facets, so opposed, but yet so complimentary: the cold aspect of the metal, in opposition, but in perfect harmony, with its warmth. “
