At an altitude of more than 8,200 feet, the Ethiopian city of Lalibela is shrouded in mystery. It’s one of the country’s holiest sites, with eleven churches carved right into the rock of the earth. The perfume that it inspires is an exotic incense-floral that conveys a sense of ritual alongside the spontaneity of travel. Spray it and see: Perfume can be a holy experience. Notes include coconut orchid, rose, jasmine, patchouli, rockrose, vanilla, tobacco, frankincense, and labdanum resin.
