It starts with an alluring, sugary burst. Impeccable oud and gentle rose mixes with almond. Musk and patchouli are at the base. But it’s a bright gourmand with a dash of subtle coffee flanked by opulent, airy, and utterly sensual cedar and balsam. And while it certainly has the open, expansive beauty found in some of the best contemporary fragrances it’s not without a unique sincerity and depth that is rare in today’s scents. As the name would suggest it’s truly romantic.
Top notes: bergamot, agarwood (oud), cardamom and rose. Middle notes:agarwood (oud), almond, atlas cedar, coffee and heliotrope. Base notes: amber, musk, patchouli, vanilla and tolu balsam.
