An aromatic portrait of the city of Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam. All the shades of grey stones and plaster. Grey bark of trees and pipals painted cream with spots of fungi and lichens. Bluish-white porcelain chips of mosaicked walls. Ancient roof-tiles, once terracotta, are all green now with moss. The green of leaves, of grass, of water plants, green of pond water, bright flowers of water hyacinth, and sacred blue lotus. The carmine of old pagodas, the wood of garden houses dark with time, bluish-green sides of huge incense burners, whitish-grey smoke of burning incense leaving soot on stone walls.
It is a very strange perfume, maybe the most difficult for an understanding of all the others in the regular collection. First of all, because it is more a portrait than a perfume, it’s very lasting, with noticeable sillage and troubled character. To feel the atmosphere of the place, even make things hyper-realistic, it’s better to wear the perfume in hot and humid weather. Then it works magic.
