A fragrance that takes us to warmth of a Moroccan evening, the fusion of spices coming from the medina, and the hues of the setting sun over the ocean viewed from the rooftops of Essaouira.
Reassuring and powdery tonalities of Persian wild carrot seed and orris, are embellished by a swirl of nutmeg, angelica root, lavender, and bay. Dusky accents of liquidambar linger on the skin, as soft as silk.
“The Hour of Dusk and Gold, a deeper, darker scent, is based around their cultivation of wild Persian carrot. The challenge is the lead times; for instance, it takes three years of growing and another three of processing to make orris root.”
