Gold amber
Golden writing, practiced by saffron and resin, ingredients mentioned in the Leiden Papyrus, a gilded account of the most emblematic of deserts, the evocation is achieved with the wisdom of elemi, enriched with sumptuous sprinkled saffron buns, inlays of flowers orange and sensual immersions of amber and vanilla and a mischievous hand of musk in the rear. We pass from the fresh but dense breeze of the flowers in the incipit to a warm, but narrow, calmly sweet, balsamic and slightly musky result, translucent like a freshly melted ingot. Despite its softness, it induces meditation, it is not for frivolous and superficial minds, the atmosphere that draws with its alambico of odors displaces the classic conception of a bold and provocative "orientalizing" fragrance, in favor of an intimately intense and penetrating. The shouting dissipates and the enveloping magnetism of the distant ergs hypnotizes us.
It is almost May and the Khamsin blows dry rolling up sandstorms, but finally we relax in a magical splash, like a sinuous wave, camouflaged on the skin, drawing golden hieroglyphs. Sweet and slightly flowery with that latent juiciness that recalls its own fruit, the orange blossom opens up a carpet of petals on which the elemi dominates, the golden resin dances on a mute score, which only the soul can hear.
The desert heat from an enemy becomes a breath that caresses with sweet fingers of vanilla, also golden, purged of any edible yield, as mirages cloud the vision, the alchemical skill transmutes vanilla into amber that does not expand but sacrifices its density in favor of the dusty shading of the moss, expressed with elegance, giving up its easy indolic appeal. The transformation translates into a sensory experience of extreme refinement, in a continuous change of shape of the liquid that suggests continuous different emotions to our nose.
Like the Sahara, whose sand has flowed the same for centuries but never the same, fluidizes the notes into similar infinitesimal and different grains, with a tenacious persistence that does not fear the erosion of time. The finish is increasingly dry, recalling what a day leaves on the skin in the mysterious heart of the Sahara.

Belly dance in the desert by candlelight in a silk tent
This fragrance is something very special. Something extraordinarily beautiful. Mystical and mysterious. And something quite different.

I didn't know about the effects of the Elemi-resin. It seems so alien. Not in a negative sense. It's like you've just entered a new world, a new culture. Very mystical. A belly dance in the desert by candlelight in a silk tent.

The orange and orange blossom do not make the fragrance fruity-fresh, but they give it a special touch. It harmonizes excellently with the elemi resin.

After a few hours the elemi resin slowly settles and the fragrance changes to its creamy base of amber, vanilla and musk. Unfortunately I don't find this as magical as the opening three hours. But anyway, it's still beautiful.

Already the first three hours are worth the smell. It's so special. A nuance of oriental scents that I have been missing in my experience as well as in my collection.

Durability and Sillage are rock solid and yet somewhat expandable. I will make a decided evaluation of this when I have had the opportunity to test the fragrance not only on my upper arm
Nevertheless, he is already officially on my wish list. Cheers

Rose and orange with saffron. The base is a sweet amber, resinous and enveloping, with vanilla and musk. Westernized oriental scent.

Initially citric-spicy, a rather dry and dusty, yet gentle oriental spicy-floral Fall fragrance, balanced by a warm resinous-woody base.

Orange blossoms and elemi, ambery-sweet-oudy (yet not animalistic). Merges fro the beginning to a lovely monolith, but then hardly changes.
