Amouage say that “These modern creations draw inspiration from the natural treasures of our Land, the Sultanate of Oman.”
Amber Sogara was created by perfumer Élise Bénat, and is described as a floral amber scent. “A crystal twinkle of Aldehydes uplifts the luscious silkiness of Rose Centifolia blooms caressed by the diaphanous muskiness of Ambrette. A canticle of light and might echoing still in the antic halls of Al Sogara.”
Karine Vinchon-Spehner is the nose behind the dry-woody, Santal Sohar. “Powdery-green sweeps of Basil-Rose meet the spicy vermillion of Clove bark all dimmed in the mellow, gourmand sheen of Sandalwood. The golden aura of a thousand celestial lights glimmering over the ancient harbour of Sohar whence spices and sandal used to flow.”
Both attars are available now from Amouage.
