As night dissipates, so comes the dawn. In the precious moments before the morning sun brings first light, and her first blazing heat, the waking Middle East takes spiritual pause; lyrical call to prayer inspires the quiet gathering of energy for the day ahead.
At the perfume’s core, an abundance of natural oud. Deceptively simple, its magnificent texture is faceted by a host of supporting characters: a refreshing opening of rose and lively pink pepper. Laudanum and vibrant frankincense bring extra warmth as oak moss provides a dark focal point. Diffuse yet powerful, an allegory for the serenity and solitude of the day’s first moments.
A song before sunrise.
Dawn was developed by perfumer Carlos Benaïm. Additional notes include vetiver.
