CarolAnn Barrows has been invited by a sacred music scholar who works for the Turkish Ministry of Culture to be the first person ever to sing their most beloved, 500-year-old epic poem –the Mevlidi Sherif– in English.
This is the most frequently recited poem in the world and is cherished by Turkish Muslims, much as Christmas carols are by Christians. Unlike Christmas carols, this poem is sung and recited throughout the year.

Silk and fragrance have long been entwined in Japanese culture. In earlier days, silk garments were imbued with aromatic blends, which would fuse with the warmth of the skin to release a sensual and inviting scent. Both men and women took pleasure in this intimate tradition, and silk and fragrance were inseparable for the creation of a truly personal scent.
SENSAI’s first fragrance, SENSAI THE SILK, is a modern day interpretation of this traditional olfactory wisdom. Like the words to a poem or the lyrics to a song, when SENSAI THE SILK embraces the skin it manifests into a poetic scent to tell the tale of the woman’s beautiful life.
