A tribute to the great emperor Ashoka who converted to Buddhism, transforming himself from ruthless conqueror to benefactor of mankind.
Delicate fresh notes of lotus, rose water, parsley and water hyacinth intensify as we wander deep into the heart of an Imperial palace garden. The rich fragrances of fig, acacia, iris, jasmine and ylang ylang hang heavy in the sultry air. The heat is most intense at the base of the perfume where the essential grandeur of Ashoka is displayed in a blaze of fir balsam, myrrh, cedar and sandalwood, vanilla, ambergris, leather, vetiver and styrax. An olfactory banquet indeed fit for an emperor.
