Create your own Eau de Toilette
You will then select your preferred scents and make your blend and make your very own fragrencee, as unique as you from 17 pre-prepared Eau de Toilettes. The fragrance you will be working with are created in one of the top laboratories in Grasse, the perfume captial for France. They are grouped into the following scent categories:
Grapefruit / Sea / Wild Herbs
Fresh, easy to wear and most often mixed that can be easily assembled with flowers and woods. In this family called by perfumers the "hesperidae", we find the first colognes. The Hesperides are nymphs of Greek mythology who had custody of a golden apple orchard.
Easy to Wear recalling childhood memories.
Rose / Jasmine / Orange Flower / Lily of the Valley / Lavender / Iris / Lilac
Flowers, at the heart of all fragrant creations are often at the origin of our first olfactory emotions. This family is the richest given the wide variety of creations around a flower. They have been worked to strongly recall their natural scent. These flowers can be mixed together to form bouquets or animated with spicy, fruity, woody touches.
Vanilla / Ginger/ Red Pepper
Spices bring a promise of warmth and sensuality from elsewhere. They also give character to the fragrance and mix perfectly with the flowers and the woods.
Vetiver / Cedre / Agarwood
Spices bring a promise of warmth and sensuality from elsewhere.They also give character to the fragrance and mix perfectly with the flowers and the woods. Wear alone or combined.
