In the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the seven wonders of the world, Amytis of Media,
wife of the great king, rediscovers her native land: the woody mountains of cypress, cedar,
and almond trees, fig orchards, quince, pomegranate, and orange trees. It is in this Eastern
paradise where Mušhuššu, the protective genius, envelops us in a trail of scents carried by
oud, the wood of the gods.
