L’ancien de Huế is a nostalgic story about the last dynasties of Vietnam. Only through scents, the story can depict such nobility and serenity that are beyond trivial words.
It is the venerable trace of the Imperial Palace. It is the gracious aroma of Lotus on Tinh Tam Lake. It is the subtle smoke of incense in the Royal Chambers. It is the essence of Acorus grass grow in the source of Perfume River, the very essence that produces the legendary fragrance of the river.
The silhouette of Royal Ladies with their redolent dresses was the inspiration for the King. It made him a poet.
"I broke the old mirror hoping to find your reflection;
I folded your clothes longing to linger on in your scent.”
L’ancien de Huế, the scent of nostalgia.
Huế city is in the center of Vietnam. It was the national capital from 1802 to 1945 of Nguyen Dynasty Emperor and of Đàng Trong Kingdom from 1738 to 1775.
