Ylang-ylang from Madagascar meets the Guara almond from Alicante.
Ylang-ylang (which means «the Flower of Flowers» in Malay) was often used in the alcoves of harems for the aphrodisiac properties of its floral, suave, jasminy and spicy scent.
Here, the perfumer Gérard Bertrand tames its intensely sensuous character without erasing it by wrapping it in the suave, gourmand notes of the Guara almond from Alicante.
The warmth of balsams blends with woody notes of cedar, guaiac and vetiver to compose an embracing, comforting cocoon-scent with a floral, powdery heart.
Top Note: Lemon, Ylang-Ylang
