For this rebirth of a classic, Bruno Jovanovic takes on patchouli, a cornerstone of perfumery. Reminiscent of the seductive allure of times gone by, this sensual, elegant material constitutes half of the fragrance's unique formula. Top notes of mandarin orange mingle with rum absolute, while generous measures of cedar, suede and frankincense create a mystical aura, and modern amber adds a touch of darkness. Traces of vanilla and musk round off the edges for a harmonious whole.About the perfumer:
Bruno Jovanovic is one of perfumery's rising stars. While visiting a department store he discovered a world that fascinated him. He decided to make it his living and graduated from Isipca, the famous perfumery school in Versailles, where he was a star student. A seasoned perfumer at IFF, he advocates Kant's philosophy that "beauty is universal and has no concept." Mr. Jovanovic is a dreamer who also imagines the kind of perfume the impression of a painting or certain words would produce.
