Of all the materials, the incense is without doubt, by its history and the religious symbols which are associated with it, the one that fascinates the perfumer the most. Its woody, mineral and slightly spicy smell brings a mystical dimension, a sacred aspect to any composition.

It was considered in antiquity as more precious than gold and the incense roads of the Arab kingdoms to the gates of Indonesia participated in the fortune of entire civilizations.

In 2009, I composed a fresh vegetal incense where the animality of the aloe wood responded to the bitterness of the cinchona bark. I called it « L’eau Guerriere » (Warrior Water), a reminder that ancient divination ceremonies, based on incense, were often used to predict the outcome of military maneuvers ...

Ten years later, here I am again on the road of incense with as a starting point an extraordinary material, inspired by the fumes of combustion of the chips of oud from Indonesia: the Kyara Wood.

At the same time mineral and burning its perfume is an "animalized smoke" and to accord it to the resin of incense appeared to me an obviousness. Benzoin, Ciste, Elemi, Fenugreek, Cypress, Gaiac, Iris, Labdanum, Patchouli, Tonka Bean, Ginger and Nagarmotha, 12 natural raw materials were the tools of this union.

Sorong is a talisman, his sillage an olfactory cuirass.
