INSPIRATION

This sunny perfume is made with ylang ylang Extra, the Champagne of ylang extractions, from a small archipelago off Madagascar coast with twenty paradise islets with lush land and marine biodiversity. Its largest islet, Nosy Be (“Assada” in Arabic) is coined as the "Perfume Island" as the world’s largest ylang producer.

JUICE

Behind the world's most successful perfumes such as Chanel No.5, ylang ylang is mocked as the "poor man's jasmine" and most don't even know its true smell.

It unfolds a creamsicle flash of kumquat, lemon Meyer, mandavasarotra, helichrysum, tagetes, turmeric, and pink peppercorn, nesting a luminous ylang arpeggio.

Surrounded with soapy, candy-like flickers of lisylang, tiaré, michelia and banana, the whimsical ylang heart gets swept by Indian Ocean ambergris, elemi, nagarmotha, seaweed, and onycha shell, adding a dusty aged marine smokiness. Rafting back to shore, it closes on an earthy spicy base of Bourbon vanilla, orris, coffee, spices, resins and balsams.

A realistic ylang soliflore magnifying the real Queen of perfumery to tell the authentic story of Nosy Be island at the crossroads of Africa, Arabia and Asia.
