An homage to the 1499 masterpiece The Pietà – A day before leaving his birthplace, a six- year old Catholic child saw one of the most admired sculptures of all time created by the young Michelangelo.

Inspired by a montage of the imagination and life affirming experiences with nature’s most stately creature, Equus, especially during a magnificent ride through historic mountains with spectacular views of the Manua Kea.

The initial opening is of spicy notes of Cardamom, Clove, Pimento Berry and Bois de Rose, evolving into leathery notes that harmonize with Saffron Absolute and Myrrh.

There are notes of myrrh, black pepper, cedar wood, patchouli, vetiver and amber.
