Struck by the strength of the Dalinian eye symbolizing discovery and desire, Alberto Morillas’s interpretation tickles both sight and spirit. This Oriental Woody Amber fragrance is a sensual, mysterious and elegant rose that transforms our vision of the world into permanent enchantment. Here the Damascena rose absolute, used as an infusion to restore the floral transparency of the bouquet while keeping its rich herbaceous and sensual qualities, is lifted by the green freshness of the Tunisian mandarin and the galbanum but the musky base notes keep the rose from revealing all its secrets. Ambrette absolute, used in Antiquity for its relaxing, energizing and aphrodisiac virtues and Moroccan Atlas cedar wood develop a heart with addictive and mysterious accents.
Symbol of beauty and purity, the rose has fascinated since 4000 BC. Greek poets wrote that the rose “is the exquisite perfume of gods, the delight of mortals and the cherished ornament of the Graces”. In perfumery, the origins of roses can be found in ancient Persian gardens. Indeed, the Persians were the first to distil rose water. According to the legend, the rose essential oil was discovered when Nour-Djihan, a Persian princess married the Mogul Emperor Dhihanguyr. The canals around the wedding had been filled with rose water and the princess noticed a thin film on its surface – Rose essential oil.
The Eye of Time brooch was created in 1949 as a gift for Gala Dali. The outer boundaries of the brooch are encrusted with diamonds, in the corner of the eye is a ruby cabochon cut, and in the middle is a Swiss clockwork.
