Attar of Jasmine
Jasmine is a unique flower, its remote origins go back to Iran.
The flower of the moon, known for its magic influences in love, spiritually, sex, physic dreams and sleep. Here in the Caribbean became a wild creature, it left the Victorian manicured gardens and stripped of her clothes and went deep into the Caribbean forest, now grows wild.
The pristine whiteness of her petals dance in an orgiastic composition with the boldness of the palms, with the shadows of the abundant flora. Our scent captures the scent of jasmine with its lush Caribbean surroundings.
Extract from the Book of Caribbean Lost stories:
…” I don’t want to remember anymore who I was, every time I open the trunk of the memories I only can think how I did to bare the torment of my past days. Life was certainly good in my old world, but it didn’t have the strength and passion I find in this land. Maybe is the heat and the weather that makes us go lighter. We are free to love in the way we want.
I had been so criticized for letting the jasmines go wild, for adopting the local plants into my garden, but they love me so much. Poor Candide people, they are trapped in a fantasy of perfection, but they have cut their wings, they have cut their holly roots. They just don’t know.
I can dance for countless days, I can let the sun touch my skin or the moon kiss my lips, They will keep calling me crazy, but I am the only sane”…
