Arab Attars
Arabia is a paradoxical composition originated by the combination of two opposite but complementary fragrances the mystical damask rose, flower of eternal love, and the extract of castoreum (beaver), savage and wild. In Arabia, the perfume of the divine rapture sung by the Persian Sufis meets the rough animal secretion that awakes our primary impulses through our sense of smell. It binds together the fragrance exhaling from the bodies of the saints with an aromatic substance meant by nature to hit the center of animals nervous system, the very part we share with them. Between these two extreme scents I have thrown a bridge of warm Arabic spices (cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg) and rare absolutes (narcissus, violet, tuberose).
