Meant to imitate the deep shades of the Mediterranean, the iconic art-deco glass bottle comes in a sparkling cerulean blue. The fragrance itself includes top notes of pepper, bergamot, nutmeg and pimento, heart notes of cypress, juniper and sage, and the base is comprised of Virginian cedar wood. While strong at first, this fragrance is one of the rare perfumes that makes its way through the each note starting with headier scents, and after hours of wear, lingers into softer underlying tones. It may not instantly seem like a summer scent without heavy floral and citrus flavors, but after a few moments on the skin it melts into a light, fresh fragrance that you could only smell when surrounded by nature.
