Amaretto is the beloved Italian almond-flavored liqueur whose name means "a little bitter", which it definitely is, but it is also a little sweet with a cherry-like fruitiness. That elusive bittersweet quality is at the heart of almond`s appeal and is the centerpiece of this compelling scent.
In Orgasmo, the almond note is full and complex, stepping forward after the intoxicating sweetness of the opening subsides. There is a creamy, dough-like quality underneath–not sugary cookie dough, but rich and buttery bread dough laced with almonds and fruit with a whisper of salt. While there are many elements of comfort in this scent, the insistent, tantalizing thrum of almond`s dark side maintains Orgasmo`s thrill. An undercurrent of dry, cool wood gives this the dusky feel of rough velvet and distant smoke.
According to Hilde, Orgasmo was inspired by drinking iced almond coffee on the beach with good friends. All we can say is that must have been some really special coffee and some really nice friends, because this sensuous scent evokes a feeling of true euphoria!
