Inspired by Fairuz’s 'Shayef El Bahr' شايف البحر شو كبير - ‘See the Sea’. Part of the Tarab duo celebrating Arabic music and icons of the Arab world. Fairuz’s legendary voice echoes in the hearts and minds of the Lebanese to this day.
A burst of lemon; a scent synonymous with Lebanon.
The wind carries the scent of the sea, merging with the fresh scent of green nature and the vastness of the mountains. Juxtaposed with woods and a faint Arak* accord to create a ‘turquoise’ color.
*Arak: Levantine Anisic spirit similar to Ouzo
