Eau de Parfum, 50ml
Or, the wisdom of China
Osmanthus, the emblematic flower of China, presents surprising apricot and suede notes. Here, their fruity, velvety facets are set off by a refreshing green tea accord in the top notes, enhanced with rose and jasmine sambac absolute, wrapped in delicate white musk. OSMANTHUS INTERDITE: the surprise of a flower that blossoms into fruit and skin… for today’s sages.
