"Encore du temps is a love dedication, it is a flower fallen into a cup of tea.
It was a trip to Laos that made me understand the timeless love between two people, that gave birth to my desire to tell you about this journey. That tea seemed to never end, as the little Osmanthus flower floated among the swirls of the cup. It was just love and we wished we still had time to live that moment of our lives, sitting on the terrace of a historic colonial house in Luang Prabang.
A gentle and delicate opening, loving since its first olfactory steps, gentle notes of Bergamot and Mandarin open the way to the heart, a white canvas sprinkled with Green Tea, on which rests Osmanthus: warm, voluptuous and fruity, the same canvas on which rests the poetry of Champaca flower, in its Asian scents I feel my beloved Asia and the walks in the forests, next to them the great Magnolia is a dedication.
In the background the sweetness of Benzoin from Laos, the care of Sandalwood and the memories of Mate tell a delicate ending. The Osmanthus today grows in our garden, giving us a fragrant and delicate flowering in autumn. On autumn evenings, as I walk by, its fruity scent takes me back to Laos, Indochina. It reminds me of the feeling I have for the woman I love every day. I would like more time again, and again, and again..."
