Launching Encens Roi by Histoires de Parfums

A breath of mystery. A star-studded mystical and holy night. Iridescent dunes, heat rising from the heart of the desert. Scorching rocks, trees petrified by summer and a white, translucent, royal and mythical sap: Encens Roi is a tribute to the resin of resins.
The most excellent offering burnt by humanity for nearly five millennia, a bridge between matter and non-matter, the tenuous and fragrant veil between the profane and the sacred, the purest and most quintessential expression of the vital thunder that animates and holds the continents together, Frankincense captivates, uplifts, soothes, illuminates.
From the spice-filled shores of ancient India to the sumptuous, smoke-filled naves of Gothic basilicas; from the coronation of Babylonian kings to the birth of Christ; from the summits of the Omani Hojar to the desert plains of Somalia; from Cleopatra to Alexander, from Ulysses to Salome, from the pharaohs to the centuries awaiting to be fulfilled, Frankincense is the crossroads of people, the junction of civilisations that time and language and war have long kept apart.
Drawing from both the historical and legendary aspects of this mother-resin, Encens Roi starts with the raw material and grows into an allegory, bringing together the unparalleled clarity of Olibanum with the addictive creaminess of White Cacao on an ascetic and regal framework of Oud and Saffron.
An introspective and modern prayer, capturing the perfume of the gods to make it the perfume of princes and monks.
A mysterious whisper, between the hallowed purity of Frankincense and the
mystical warmth of precious balsams, Encens Roi is an ode to the most
scented and ancient of offerings.
