“The abstraction of the desert landscape cleansed me, and rendered my mind vacant with its superfluous greatness.”
(from the book Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T. E. Lawrence)
The war experiences of a British officer who joined the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War. The indomitable spirit and beauty of the Arabian soul are now reflected in this limited-edition unisex fragrance
DESERT WOOD is like a bountiful spice market with striking notes of pepper, nutmeg and ginger. The fragrance then develops towards the Middle East with notes of burning incense, chilli leaves and rare saffron. The intensely woody base notes include carefully selected ingredients such as benzoin and vetiver.
The fragrance is a woody, spicy fragrance built around sandalwood essential oil and vetiver bourbon essential oil. The sandalwood gives an olfactive color of gold as the sun shines into the valley. The vetiver bourbon essence brings its smokiness to accentuate the idea of smelling a scorched wood. There is a spicy, balsamic cocktail of nutmeg, peppers, ginger, frankincense, saffron, vanilla and benzoin which creates the sense of hot air in the arid desert climate. I used my favorite ingredient Orcanox TM to recreate the mineral smell of sand. All these ingredients are blended together to generate a call to travel, a beckoning call to discover this mystical site of the east.
