This scent is equally at home at a formal dinner or a casual lunch with friends. It opens with top notes of mandarin orange, peach, plum, carnation, ylang-ylang, cardamom, and bergamot. The
floral heart is composed of notes of honey, coriander, tuberose, carnation, violet, ylang-ylang, jasmine, and rose. Finally, the complex base notes of sandalwood, amber, patchouli, musk, benzoin, coconut, civet, oakmoss, vetiver, and styrax offer a beautiful and mysterious finish.
