"Belatedly I loved thee, O Beauty so ancient and so new, belatedly I loved thee. (…) Thou didst breathe fragrant odours, and I drew in my breath; and now I pant for Thee. I tasted, and now I hunger and thirst. Thou didst touch me, and I burned for Thy peace."

St Augustine

Memory

Twelve churches hewn from the Ethiopian rock in a single night. Vanilla. Mineral rocks, sculpted, cloaked in pink, emerge from the earth. Labdanum resin. Heavenly builders driven by a mystical fervour. Jasmine absolute. Mysterious sanctuaries, protected by the frankincense of an age-old ritual. Oil of patchouli. The hum of bees in the flowers, a joyous zeal. Rose. The fate that makes a fragrance a story. Lalibela.
