A Gothic composition, as opulent and dark as the shadow of the Papal Palace looming over nations and centuries... The carmine red of the papal stole is conjured with a fleshly, spicy rose facetted by ylang-ylang and raspberry. In the heart notes, waxed woods, cacao bean, black truffle and earthy smoky vetiver lure us into the private apartments of the Supreme Pontiff. Gilt moldings and religious ornaments glint in the firelight while gray tendrils of smoke rise from a censer burning sandalwood chips mixed with musk and amber.
