The House of Oud – Klem Garden – Empathy
Empathy describes the magical moment in an Arab garden when daydreaming meets reality – a moment where all time slows down, allowing our minds to empty completely and be filled up with the colors and scents of the flowers in the garden. A moment of complete peace and tranquility. And of beauty.
Empathy captures the strange alchemy that occurs when two soul mates meet and recognize each other. Like a small, deliberate pause in a harmonious musical score, the moment of silence seems to stretch on forever, deepening the colors and sensations at either side of the moment. Words and gestures are completely superfluous – everything that needs to be said has already been communicated silently, passing between the two souls like an electrical charge. Empathy captures this flow of unspoken emotion and communication by juxtaposing a flirty raspberry and pear top with a resinous, smoky base full of balsams and woods. Although these notes appear to be wholly separate and different, the fragrance unites them smoothly into a perfect harmony of notes.
