As previously mentioned, I recently returned from a wonderful vacation in Morocco. While in Marrakech, I stayed at the fabulous La Mamounia, which can only be described as heaven on earth. From the moment I entered the palace, I was consumed by a wonderfully intoxicating scent, which was exotic, seductive, refreshing and yet subtle all at the same time. Olivia Giacobetti, owner of the INUX boutique in Paris, one of the preeminent perfumeries, designed the signature scent for La Mamounia which showcases both dates and cedar wood, two quintessentially Moroccan elements. Luckily the hotel sold some of the custom candles (for a small fortune, of course!) thereby allowing me to bring this scent home. Whenever I burn the candle, it reminds of the fabulous time I had on that trip!
