White sweet oud, smoke tinged caramel and soft blonde woods smouldering in an intense luxuriance of Mai de Rose, red saffron, bergamot, rose geranium, aphrodisiac ylang-ylang, piquant nutmeg, and rare white ambergris.
"Let's offer flowers, pour a cup of libation,
split open the skies and start anew on creation.
If the forces of grief invade our lovers' veins,
cupbearer and I will wash away this temptation.
With rose water we'll mellow crimson wine's bitter cup;
we'll sugar the fire to sweeten smoke's emanation.
Take this fine lyre, musician, strike up a love song;
let's dance, sing all night, go wild in celebration.
As dust, O West Wind, let us rise to the Heavens,
floating free in Creator's glow of elation."
Hafiz, 14th century
