Heart notes: Jasmine, Rose, Iris and Violet
Base notes: Cedar, Amber, Pine tree and Cypress.
Opens with orange blossom right into the Spanish and Bulgarian rose, sensual Jasmine leads the way for violet. What I find that really explodes for me is Raspberry before it settles into a woody - musk blend but I can still smell a slight hint of Raspberry. Which is included alongside Strawberry juxtaposed with Ramon’s unique ‘hormonal attraction of must and a gourmand note – hint of candyfloss and fudge.
The sillage for this on me surprisingly doesn’t fade for hours, it keeps from 'in the morning until the evening'. One spritz on my wrist is enough to share on both and bring up but I do like to hit the key points. Being that for me this is very high end, it’s a special occasion fragrance, one that I’d wear to make an impression on someone else.
