What could possibly be more dazzling and exotic than a cruise down the Nile?! The daringly modern travellers are travelling light: trunks of silver, china cups, leather bound books, petticoats, umbrellas and hard hats. Through the gentle, hazy glow of dawn, the past draws into sight: Pyramids a-hoy! A crisp morning breeze carries the scent of luminous grapefruit, steeped in solar jasmine inside this watery Oud. Sweet orange blossom entwines with rose.
The dancing white sails of the Felucca find a contrast in the structuring mast that calmly transports Victorian explorers, Egyptologists and archaeologists fascinated by the Ancient tombs, the pharaohs and the fecund banks of the longest river. Guaiac wood and deep amber-Oud bring a reassuring depth.
