AMOUROUD Silk Route
inspiration of perfumer Irina Burlakova
Silk Route evokes the long exotic history of travel an adventure along this famous road, connecting Europe to the wondrous spices and textiles of Persia, India, the Caucasus, and China.
Steeped in history, shrouded in mystery, the magic of the Silk Route lies in the timeless allure of travel and adventure. In truth, the Silk Route is not a single road but rather an ancient map of routes all used for the transport of exotic silks and spices from east to west: myriad golden paths to fortune and glory, interwoven like the threads of a magic carpet.
The inspiration of perfumer Irina Burlakova was the historical silk route that stretched from east to west, bringing spices, woods, fabrics…”I have been always passionate about this time. Even if the official silk road name has been given in the end of the 19th century, I believe the first experiences started around the 2nd century BC: real cultural exchange and interaction between many amazing places like Persia, India, China and the Roman Empire.
The first time when certain spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and maybe even pepper were brought to Mediterranean countries…Certain preserves and dried fruits…During expeditions (German) in the 19th century when this road had been offiialized. Going through China but also a large part of former countries of the USSR where I grew up. Thus, I have been connected to it and would love to make a trip just like it."
Steeped in history, shrouded in mystery, the Silk Route was never a single road but rather countless routes patched together in an ancient map, all used for the transport of luxurious silks, aromatic spices, magnificent jewels, and magical perfumes from east to west.
“...myriad golden paths to fortune and glory,
interwoven like threads of a magic carpet.”
