Series 3 Incense was launched in 2002 and was devoted to the five main spiritual teachings of humanity:
Zagorsk – Orthodox Christianity
Avignon – Catholicism
Jaisalmer – Hinduism
Kyoto – Buddhism, and Shintoism
Ouarzazate – Islam
Each of the fragrances is named after the cities significant for those teachings.
Zagorsk presents Eastern Orthodoxy. It is named after the Russian city that was, until today, one of the influential Orthodox-Christian places of Russia.
Built around a 14th century monastery, the Russian holy spot of Zagorsk lends its name to this fragrance. Zagorsk opens with a surge of crisp pine and cedar. At its heart is an almost clean feeling… like pinecones strewn on brand-new snow on a dark winter's eve. Pretty poetic, and so is Zagorsk. At the base is Russia's famous birch wood, but not smoky, just the memory of old, fragrant fires burned in an Orthodox church in the middle of a forest. Clear and clean with a touch of melancholy.
