This fragrance takes you on a journey to a destination you will soon discover. To create a multidimensional fragrance with sandalwood the star of the show, I turned to the warmth of spices and a mystical, smoky incense accord on top. A floral heart combined with an addictive and almost gustative facet with rum, tolu and vanilla; and a combination of delicate and creamy musks for a soft and skin-like finish.
This fragrance was inspired by a trip to Myanmar I made two years ago, just before the pandemic hit the world. I have a specific memory of an old man carving wooden beads made from sandalwood on the warm pavements of Mandalay Hill. The air was filled with incense smoke emanating from the many temples along the hill, spices from the adjacent market stalls and floral notes from the fragrances worn by local women.
