Fruity at first, it teases the taste buds. Japanese Yuzu, mandarin, grapefruit, a slice of sweet melon and ripe peach, and mint from mountain streams provide freshness and energy. Then follow the rough green notes of fig leaves and violet. Jasmine, spices, (nutmeg and cinnamon), balsams, drops of styrax and myrrh take over. Finally, sandalwood mingles with amber, musk, balsam pine, patchouli, vetiver, and vanilla.
Sonia Rykiel creates for artistic and rather romantic men who love women and children. A fragrance for men must be light and misty, veiled like a halo. It must float delicately and not be heady but must attract.
