In Spain, circa 822 AD, Zyriab (‘the blackbird’) was the most talented musician in Medieval Spain. He revolutionized music, transforming the Andalusian culture in the process. Cuir Anadalou by Rania J. expresses his quest for knowledge, profound artistic creation, and the defiant spirit that enabled him to break all boundaries. Cuir Andalou is a refined, mysterious leather that envelops the wearer. A journey through the hidden depths of our sensual selves, this fragrance is inspired by the intricate beauty of Andalusian art, architecture and music. Like a night time wander through a walled garden, where the air is invisibly perfumed. Saffron shimmers atop rich rose, an electric monobeam that illuminates the fruity depths of this coiled (energy) blossom. Patchouli smolders, a cloud of verdant smoke that is simultaneously sweet and refreshing. Violet’s piquant heat warms the to-cool-for-school contours of iris, and engendering a classic buttery, shimmering orris glow. A universe of precious and dark wood elements mimic the taut acidity and crisp, sumptuous textures of leather, whose soft strength is ultimate luxury. Rich yet effervescent this handsome scent transports us to a moment of cultural reinvention. Revel in its revolutions.
