"Here was the beginning, a barren desert, then mud houses inhabited by ancestors over the years. They loved perfumes and the people of pleasant smell. We inherited that love in our hearts. Perfumes are the joy of our hearts. We inherited it from that time… we loved and developed it … Let's fill this place with it today. Modern Heritage is a precious perfume adored and passed down over generations."
Made by the Kuwaiti brand Gissah to reflect the importance of fragrance in their culture, Modern Heritage puts a delightful twist on the 'rose oud' genre by spiking it with a deftly fruity touch of raspberry. Using geranium to impart the same kind of floralcy as a rose, the raspberry acts pure and simply as a red highlighter, rounding out the edges and softening the volume of the oud. The touch of iris keeps the juice feeling dry and cloud like as it wears.
