This sexy, warm citrus is a modern take on petitgrain. A dynamic, complex blend of traditional citrus layered with delicate, green florals and soft woods, Petitgrain is a refreshing classic with a contemporary twist.
Bergamot oozes juicy excitement at the outset of this scent, but this outpouring is quickly quenched, as neroli sears and lemon institutes a more structured, citric architecture. After this introductory triptych, petitgrain emerges and its ephemeral, shimmering tartness instantly astounds us.
Lavender quickly follows, a cool contrast which serves to heighten Petitgrain’s perfect color. Cardamom performs much the same role as lavender, and its cool heat magnifying Petitgrain’s luminous grace from an opposing, comparatively shadowy position.
Orange flower echoes petitgrain sweetly, while orris illuminates some of the star note’s powdery insouciance with its own dusty richness. Orcanox and patchouli engineer an almost artificial sense of sparkle, as Petitgrain has suddenly exploded into full disco mode. But this boogie-down-perspective is curbed by the quiet, grounding spice of vetiver and the mineralic sugars of tonka bean.
Musk integrates all and buries Petitgrain deep within your consciousness, so that you can never forget its hypnotic, alluring power. Sensual and aromatic, this luxurious unisex fragrance lasts from morning well into night.
