In the heart of the Middle East, where the ancient sands embrace the promise of a new day, there unfolds a mystical awakening that finds its essence in Dawn Eau de Parfum. It is a fragrance that captures the ethereal moments that exist in the transition from night to day, when the ink-black night sky slowly surrenders to the soft, beckoning light of the impending dawn. In these precious moments, as the first rays of sunlight remain hidden, and the day’s blazing heat is yet to arrive, the Middle East awakens in spiritual pause. The lyrical call to prayer resonates, inspiring a quiet gathering of energy for the day ahead.
At the core of this olfactory masterpiece lies an abundance of natural oud, a precious and revered ingredient. This simplicity, however, is deceptive, for within this magnificent texture are layers of supporting characters that add depth and dimension to the fragrance. A refreshing opening of rose and lively pink pepper awakens the senses, while the rich and vibrant presence of frankincense and laudanum infuse an extra layer of warmth. Oak moss, like a dark focal point in the heart of the desert, adds an earthy and grounding quality. The fragrance, diffused yet powerful, becomes an allegory for the serenity and solitude of those magical moments before the sun’s first embrace—a poetic ode to the song before sunrise.
