By Christian Provenzano
This is a striking saffron and incense perfume with a floral heart and a warm leathery base.
The frankincense and amber create a beautiful warm temple / church vibe, unfurling a rich floral heart of Indian tuberose and rose, ylang ylang and geranium.
Absinthe and elemi and pink pepper add hedonistic make a slightly medicinal top note balanced with a slightly resinous and leathery base of amber, tonka, patchouli and labdanum.
Inspired by Vesta, the Roman goddess of purity, home and hearth. Her purity of heart and promise of fertility were symbolised in the eternal flames burning in her temples.
Like its inspiration this fragrance has an eternal elegance, appeal and a lightness of touch.
