INSPIRATION

Carolina Herrera de Baez, Creative Director of Carolina Herrera Fragrances, and Master Perfumer Pierre-Constantin Guéros devote a personal love for the scent overdose that coats all aspects of life in the Middle East. Both share a deep admiration for the incredibly rich, high-quality ingredients that are used in traditional perfumery and for the way perfume is embedded in their culture and daily life.

When developing Gold Incense, they started from the idea of fusing power and beauty represented by two iconic materials, gold and frankincense. The brilliance of the composition interjects a very earthy, majestic resin of the Boswellia Sacra tree accord with a lush Atlas Cedarwood and a Labdanum note.

The result is divinely chic, a fusion of strength and mysticism condensed in the golden shades of a sunset on the Salalah hills.
