THE PERFUMER'S MESSAGE

“To create AKSOUM, I worked with sumptuous flowers, largely tuberose and jasmine. I find they evoke the aura of sensuality and magnetism that emanated from this powerful queen.”

Bergamot raw material Reine de Saba

Patchouli raw material Reine de Saba paris

An immediate encounter with lemon, orange and bergamot reveals a colorful opening that calls to mind the vibrant landscape of the Queen of Sheba’s homeland. Like an eau de cologne, the top notes give way to a fragrant hint of camphor, Tunisian rosemary rubbed with black pepper, that evokes the queen’s lively spirit.

 

Her wealth is symbolized by a trio of regal flowers: orange blossom and tuberose resound together in a sensual heart and then are joined by Egyptian jasmine absolute, which adds volume to help the bouquet flourish. Irresistible coconut lactones envelop the petals, infusing the white flowers with a sublime gentleness that caresses the skin.

 

The queen’s power is epitomized by a base of noble woods that give depth to the sillage and offer a faceted elegance. Sandalwood, molecular distilled patchouli LMR, Atlas cedar and musk pod round the fragrance out with smoky nuances that create an alluring, misty sillage.
