Jamie Frater, Perfumer & Creative Director:
From the opium-laced dreams of Samuel Taylor Coleridge came Kubla Khan, or A Vision In A Dream. During the research phase of an article I was writing, I came upon the tale of the mysterious “person from Porlock” who disturbed Coleridge's sleep causing him to leave his famed poem unfinished. Fascinated by this curious tale and, needless to say, dazzled by the beauty of the poem itself, I was moved to create a fragrance that could be the “the milk of Paradise.”
The 14th century Mongolian Yuan dynasty drove Coleridge's vision and it is from whence I took my inspiration. Damask roses in their hundreds crown a riot of opulent florals: sweet ylang ylang, Moroccan neroli, erogenous Jasmine and unctuous iris. Incredibly rare East Indian sandalwood and natural oud Assafi give majesty to the scent while wild Abyssinian civet contributes a low animalic growl.
Dynasty is that milk of Paradise. Dynasty is Xanadu transfigured.
