Memory

A show of glowing dunes. At nightfall, the Wahiba desert in Oman gives the sky a unique glow. With the sun gone, the moon pays homage to the kandjar, emblem of the sultanate, by taking the shape of a crescent. It shines just as bright as this small sword, slipped into the leather belt of men who wear the traditional costume. The heavenly canopy lights up the path to Wadi Shab, a lush paradise, bursting forth like patchouli. A majestic Orient offers itself to contemplation. Oriental Leather bears its secrets, whispering them to Orion whose constellation clings to the night like a charm on a belt. Amber and leathery notes are revealed in broad daylight, when the world's march resumes in the souks of Mutrah amidst the scents of lavender, cinnamon and benzoin.
