Salty breezes and warmed, honeyed resins give way to boozy sour cherries and blackened beach woods. This scent is inspired by the sculptural cliffs of The Algarve in the fall months.
After all this time the midday sun still activates the sticky resins of the rock roses. Their syrupy vapor envelops crumbling rocks where dinosaurs once splayed their giant feet Like a palette knife dragging paint A memory of a sip of Ginjinha on the tongue Which has never known thirst. Warmed clusters of pollen cling to the legs of bees Sifting through honeyed wildflowers. Petals gently releasing In the warm ocean breeze Which carves and sculpts dramatic cliffs With tiny crystals of salt like chisels Emoceans like water are home to elegant whales Singing the ancient songs of their ancestors.
