Phoenicia, the home of ardent explorers and merchants whose lives rhymed with the whispering chords of the sea. They were maritime pioneers and ocean musketeers, who compelled the waves to bow and to take them to “the verge of the sea”.
They conquered the restless sea with the mighty ships
they built, revivifying the “wrinkled blue” with a flame of life.
Phoenicia’s air, an aroma with notes of salty water and nuances of sea’s milky sour sweet foam. Phoenicia, a fragrance of the seas of Byblos, Ugarit, and Haifa.
Phoenicia’s tale was woven with the glory beams of Baalbek’s sun, blended with Tyrian purple, the color of royalty.
The essence of its verse was inspired by the dreams of Carthage.
