The heart of 1872 for Women, with the elegant introduction of Sicilian Mandarin.
1872 Mandarin echoes much of its predecessors' vitality, with Bergamot and Tangerine oils nestling beside beautiful and rare Rose de Mai, joyful Freesia, and delicate Violet at the heart. But it is the twist of Sicilian Mandarin oil that brings an elegant and smooth citrus touch to the whole, along with the addition ofLavender in the heart, and Vetiver to add extra sparkle to the base of Woods and precious Musks.
Mandarins originate from China, where they have been historically regarded as a symbol of good fortune and have a significant, sacred meaning in Chinese New Year celebrations. Mandarins were introduced to Italy and Sicily in the early 19th century and are now considered the finest for mandarin oil extraction. Mandarin oil is extracted before the fruits are ripe.
