On the coast of Ras Al Jinz, mid-summer, when the sun is in the middle of the sky, Ashore, depicts a mirage of the senses.
As one’s eyes are saturated with light, a surreal brightness blends all that is around them, leaving only the wind that carries the scent of spices from the East. This intoxicatingly white floral fragrance of Jasmine, Ambergris and Sandalwood offers an olfactive interpretation of the union of the sun, the sand and waves while the Cardamom and Turmeric recall the scent of spices from India.

the midsummer light in raz-al-jinz
In midsummer, the blinding light of Pink Pepper and Cardamom contrasts with the dry heat of Turmeric Leaf, golden like the sands of an endless coastline.
The Jasmine Sambac Absolute, with its brutally fruity inflections, strengthens an imperious and disturbingly bright Solar Accord, that a Rose Absolute infuses with its spicy heat.
The vast blue sea crashes against the shore and the scorching wind carries around the salty smell of Ambergris and the sticky, smoky fragrance of Olibanum Hyperabsolute, crystallising within it the smell of spices and Sandalwood that burn on the other side of the sea.
A hypnotising floral-solar perfume, Ashore depicts the mirage of the senses that occurs every summer on the coast of Ras al Jinz.
