The sun of an ancient city rises slowly over the citadel, like liquid gold that fills the sky. Now, the early morning murmur of life is about to burst through. A skyline that reflects mathematical magic and so bears testimony to the cradle of scholarship that is Cairo. And in harmony with the masterly shapes that rise upwards from the earth, soft female forms command the sky. The Mediterranean melting-pot is home to a thousand minarets and a thousand fragrant gems. Damascan Rose is macerated in an abundance of woods and spices. An ornate and sumptuous composition that echos with saffron and incense, per fumum, the perfume of the gods. Patchouli and vanilla sign the base with the familiar reassurance of dusk. Made in England.
Editor's Notes: Perfumer Christophe Raynaud explored Egypt and its multiple facets during the creation of this fragrance, inspired by his firsthand experience of Cairo, the splendour of its historic antique artefacts, and the scented idea of the Spice Road. The result is a beautifully honied and seasoned fragrance, opening with an impressive and complex melange of exotic spices resting on rose and woods. The scent unfurls slowly on the skin, offering pleasant tones of smoke and sweetness. A memorable and lasting fragrance.
