After his unforgettable chance encounter with Ambergris, the perfumer continues his journey by following the path of great navigators on the Spice Route. He sails the seven seas from the West Indies to the Cape of Good Hope and from the Malabar Coast to China in order to find the very best qualities of vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli.
Originating from tropical Asia, Sandalwood is a rich, musky, warm wood which is primarily cultivated in the Mysore region of Southern India. Manuscripts dating back more than 4000 years testify to the use of this precious and sacred wood, at which time it was used during religious ceremonies, for building temples and monasteries, as well as carving perfumed divinities. According to the biblical story, King Solomon used the highly prized sandalwood given to him by the Queen of Sheba to make balustrades to the temple of the Lord and the royal palace, and to construct lyres and harps for the musicians. Aromatic raw material of great value, the essence of sandalwood is obtained after distilling wood and roots. Also known as « liquid gold », its fragrance is milky and suave, oriental and powdery, smooth and heady.
