In January 2015 a new fragrance As Sawira was added as a 4th chapter, initially announced as the last episode in the Trade Routes saga. It appears that there has been a change of heart with now Halfeti which takes inspiration from the commercial exchanges of luxury goods with Turkey conducted under the aegis of the Levant Company. Imports of spices, leathers, materials and exotic blooms are recalled.
