Description

Series 3 Incense was launched in 2002 and was devoted to the five main spiritual teachings of humanity:

Ouarzazate – Islam
Avignon – Catholicism
Jaisalmer – Hinduism 
Kyoto – Buddhism, and Shintoism
Zagorsk – Orthodox Christianity

Each of the fragrances is named after the cities significant for those teachings.

Ouarzazate (to be pronounced as 'war-za-zat') meaning 'the Desert Fire', is devoted to Islam and named after a small historical town of Ouarzazate in Morroco. Ouarzazate brings the smell of precious sweet and intensive Arabian spices and aromatic desert plants. The fragrance becomes milder on skin. The grassy note of sage, a herb that Morroco is known for, wriggles through the spaces, calming pepper and nutmeg, and opening the space for mysterious frankincense.

The high Atlas mountain city of Ouarzazate (pronounced war-za-zat) in Morocco was the inspiration of this masterpiece. At its opening, a sweet, balsamic tang of labdanum absolute quickly followed by zesty pepper tickles your nose. As it warms on the skin, the softly herbal clary sage (for which Morocco's is hailed as among the finest in the world) blends with a now-calm pepper and nutmeg to make Ouarzazate a crossroads of perfectly blended, spiced incense of the Middle Eastern variety. We close our eyes and imagine we're in the cool, still interior of Ouarzazate's famous Kasbah.
