An exuberant exploration of sweet and spicy notes that celebrates the infinite possibilities of springtime. The opening is cool and crisp, featuring sparkling green mandarin, herbal cistus and a bracing dose of icy ginger; then creamy vanilla, juicy peach and pillowy, almond-like heliotrope emerge like the first flowers of the year breaking through a thin crust of snow – beautiful and surprising. Sharp and extremely distinct touches of anise, nutmeg and fierce black pepper add an effervescent spiciness to the milky sweetness. This has the luscious satiny texture of a peach and vanilla crème brulee, topped with the satisfying caramelized crunch of benzoin. A grounding layer of musk, amber and resinous labdanum, enriched with the wood and leather notes of lorenax, add the reassuring and embracing warmth of a true thaw, when all traces of ice have left the ground. One of our favorite things about this delectable scent is the way the sweet elements like peach and caramel are held in tension with the sharpness of the spices – the contrast brings out the best in the gourmand elements and takes them to unexpected places. This goes beyond being a comforting scent, to being a truly joyful one.
