Oriental and paradoxal, our Ying and Yang.
At the same time bright, sensual, then suddently dark, L’Étoile Noire is truly a paradoxal fragrance translating the light and dark sides that each of us each carries in our soul. Our Yin and Yang. The top notes of Italian bergamot and lemon are intense, yet also very fleeting. They quickly leave place to carnal and spicy floral notes. At the heart: blue ginger, elemi resin, rose and petitgrain. The base goes from dark shadows : oud, gaiac, tobacco, sandalwood turning to the light with vanilla, violet and white musk. This composition is the perfect alchemy, being at the same time mysterious and mesmerizing.
