A MULTI-LAYERED WORK OF GLOWING OLFACTIVE ARCHAEOLOGY

Having a vivid imagination is truly a joy. It allows you to travel anywhere in the world with a blink of an eye, with the added luxury of choosing whatever period you’d like. My love for the city of Petra comes through my affection for the romanticism of the antique world. The more you learn about societies like the one that was thriving in Petra, you’ll realise that it was a society that was perhaps not so different from the one we live in today. Let me rephrase that: A different reality, but nevertheless a reality with very similar goals to the ones we’re striving to reach today. Love, family, art, innovation, enlightenment, wealth, power! These values are present today as much as they were before. Being able to understand this makes it much easier to travel in time and to place yourself there.

Choosing Petra as the setting for this fragrance felt very natural to me. Drawing inspiration from the environment itself. The warm sandstone being coloured in a kaleidoscope of terracotta-like nuances as it basks in the sun.

The vast trading network played an essential role in the wealth of this city – caravans traveling through with exotic goods such as sandalwood, opoponax, and spices. The fascinating ora, masses of oleander trees sprung from the dry ground with owers spreading a thin veil of luscious apricots. A setting well worthy of a fragrance we thought.

The whole fragrance rests on my attempt at recreating the texture and colour of the sandstone that makes this ancient city so unique. It was vital for me to make something modern you see and getting this effect right was something I believed would bring the fragrance and the Nabataeans into the 21st century. But how do you recreate the matt texture of the desert sun hitting sandstone? Well, I’ve played with a wide variety of different olfactory families to create this effect. Warmer balsamics leveled out with bone-dry ambery and woody notes that were brought together by the wonder of Co ee Absolute. The warm roasted notes of this unusual material brings everything together and captures the very colour I was after. Mother nature provides once again.
