Category: Oriental Floral
Notes: Mango blossom, artemisia, gardenia, orange, violet leaf, tiare flower, pepper, frangipani, sandalwood, balsam, amber.
The Bottle: Curvaceous, sinuous, slightly edgy, and perfectly balanced. A delicious little composition – the snakes give it a wonderful “original sin” vibe that perfectly frames its sensual appeal. *****
The Scent: Sweetest mango blossom at first disguises a wonderfully deep, woody composition which retains its complexity even in its later stages. A lightly bitter, sharply green presence can be felt, as the violet leaf and artemisia begin to make themselves known five minutes in. This is followed by the introduction of the earthy, cool balsam with a slight twist of pepper marring the florals. Strong and sexual and yet never overbearing: slip into this one like a satin nightgown, and allow it to wind its way around you. ****
