This fragrance is characterised by classic chypre qualities, which means it is composed of citrus top-notes, a middle of citrus and bottom notes that are oaky and rustic, but has a distinct floral edge. It settles to give an intense, elegant aroma - the perfect suitor for those first days of spring when the mornings are still crisp. The lemon and mandarin mimic the freshness of spring, whilst the musk, honey and sandalwood are still warming and earthy.
Roja Dove, Perfumer says by opting for a ‘mixture of citrus notes and fresh garden herbs’ you’ll feel ‘energized’.
