Masque Milano – Act II?II – Mandala
The whole universe
Light, rarefied air. Utter silence. Cows lazily lying on the grass. Stock photography Cows lazily lying on the grass. From the monastery comes the monks’ overtone singing – two notes chanting in perfect, peaceful harmony. A myrrh and incense fragrance – light and delicate. A contemplative atmosphere. Vibrating at two levels at the same time. Mandala is eastern incense, a cool, meditative essay on the ancient raw materials with which monks would offer prayers of devotion to the Gods. Airy and slightly soapy with the opening green accent of angelica herb, this scent nonetheless strikes a dark tone with its use of damp, almost earthy-bitter myrrh and its cornucopia of dry, burning spices – cinnamon, clove, and cardamom among them. This is a fragrance that feels somber but hollowed-out in a way that allows you to breathe easily. A powerfully contemplative woody, spicy incense that lasts for days: simply stunning.
