The scent is as an olfactory impression of gold, with radiant warmth from saffron and blood orange, and the glossy, luxurious musk velvione (a material that has been described as pressing the nose to the skin of a newborn’s scalp). Gum acacia, a syrup made from acacia sap, provides sugary sweetness balanced by salty amber and incense. A touch of mint tea and dried fruit pays homage to Tuareg caravan riders.
Top notes of blood orange and mint. Mid notes of saffron and dried fruit. Base notes of amber, incense, gum acacia, and velvione.
