Leili va Majnoon
The silky accords of saffron, patchouli and rose, with the depth of labdanum and lavender depict the simultaneous pain and bliss of love. The woodiness of Oudh, cedarwood and musk depict sleepless nights and endless dreams.
Inspired by the passion and idealistic devotion of love depicted in the Persian poet
Nizami’s ‘Leili va Majnoon’. A love that, in its madness, purifies the soul, giving birth
to nobility, and reaching the Sufi ideal of a higher spiritual consciousness.
I want to connect with the universe and plunge into the heart of existence, reconnecting with the formless aspects of being, to seek the profundity of the elements.
