In Asia, exotic orchids are often associated with the idea of beauty. The luscious bean of one of these orchids, the vanilla planifolia, nestles within an elegant black sheath. Falsely discreet, it is suave, languorous, mild and intoxicating. The perfumer - Randa Hammami - wanted vanilla that was not too sugary, but sweet like candied almond. Joyous fruity harmonies magnify the floral heart and melt within multi-faceted vanilla, tender and warm, cradled in dreamy musk - feminine and sensual, absolute and bewitching.
