A stopover in balmy Rio de Janeiro during an Atlantic crossing
from Argentina to Europe.
On the Corcovado mountain, an old car gently ascends a
narrow road through a swirl of cobalt-blue butterflies, the sweet
scent of tuberose wafting in through the open windows.
In 1978 Sebastián sailed from Buenos Aires to Spain aboard a gracious 1940s steamer with his family. The three-week cruise included many a port of call, the first being Rio de Janeiro, where Sebastián took a trip up the Corcovado mountain. The ascent was via a narrow road on which the old car gently progressed in a swirl of cobalt-blue butterflies, the sweet smell of tuberose wafting in through the open windows.
Fragrance Notes: mandarin, neroli, tuberose, freesia, heliotrope, cedar wood, sandalwood.
