La Belle Hélène
(75ml / 2.5 oz. natural spray)
In the begining there was a pear chord. In addition of this fresh, tansparent and delicious note, some osmanthus was added reinforcing the fruity and floral facet. The contrast is even greater when myrrh and vetiver enter in action giving greater perspective to the composition. These two ingredients provide a beautiful woodwork to the rest of the compostion holding the light and mouth watering head. The chocolaty patchouli, dry, earthy and almost powdery makes an obvious reference to the dessert “Belle Hélène”. A delicious pear chocolate accord to be served on warm skin.
