Cool Spice Accord—Fennel, Cardamom, & ‘Paan’

In the ancient land of the Himalayas, the sun is about to rise. Fog envelops pines and firs. Close by, a river rushes—blue, fresh, and pure—a vein of glaciers. The air is wonderfully cold in your lungs. Dawn arrives and the mountains awaken. One by one, their peaks shine like gold. You stand in awe.

  • Himalayan Dawn opens with top notes of bergamot, verbena, and orange flower. They lead to the cool spices of fennel, cardamom, and ‘paan’—betel leaf.
  • Middle notes are a blend of chamomile, black tea, and hint of fir needle. Rose and jasmine lend a gentle floral roundness to the perfume.
  • Base notes of sandalwood and vetiver emerge last.

Fennel is pronounced in the opening along with the freshness of lemons and citruses. There is a mild green aspect of Indian Betel Leaf in the background. The overall experience is cool and fresh but without being minty. It feels like sudden awakening of your senses as you walk from a warm interior into the chilly outdoors. The calmness of sandalwood stays on the skin after the volatile notes fade.

This perfume is inspired by my travel to Bhutan. The beauty of Paro, Bumthang, Punakha, and all of this country is breathtaking. I tried to cross a shallow river once. I was not prepared for the shock of the cold, glacier water.

There is a sense of age in this land. Ours is an old, grand planet. These mountains rose eons ago.

Travel to Bhutan is not complete without a visit to the Tiger's Nest Monastery. This beautiful temple sits on the edge of a mountain—not on the top—on the edge. It was a grueling trek up the steep slopes.

I wondered at our ability to scale such mountains, to build such inspiring structures over such difficult terrains. But most of all, I was in awe of our ambition. Ambition to scale Everest.

I wanted to capture this spirit in my perfume. With spices being the theme of my collection, I thought Fennel was suited for it. It is unmistakable, cold, sweet, and yet fresh without being minty. And it goes so well with "paan"—that quintessential Indian after-dinner mouth freshener.

At the foothills of these mountains lies the Indian city of Darjeeling. Some of the best black teas in the world come from this region, hence I added the black tea note.
