In Mecca, the scents of Labdanum resin, of Benzoin, frankincense and of the precious Agar wood invade the streets together with the 4 million pilgrims who pour to the streets 5 times every day, walking to the great mosque like river.
[...] The grave and austere note of Labdanum, deep and resinous, at once sacred and profane, is the center of gravity of “Mecca Balsam”.
Wrapped in the amber fragrance of Tonka and in the mystic aroma of the Arabic Frankincense, Labdanum wildness is tamed in an almost ecclesiastic scent that evocates at once the perfume of the mosques and the music of the wind organs in cathedrals.
Additional notes include tobacco, Indian tuberose and Damask rose.
Mecca Balsam is made with all natural materials, and is available now directly from La Via del Profumo; 16 (€34,17) or 50 (€91,67) ml, concentration unknown. (via profumo.it)
