INSPIRATION

Introducing Herbe des rois®, a rare endemic plant to the world of fragrance to create a distortion of the classic fougère depicting the bewitching atmosphere Lake Alaotra, Madagascar’s largest lake and rice basket, in the territory of the Sihanaka (“People of the Swamps”) known also for  their witchcraft rituals.

JUICE

Our lakeside promenade starts with aquatic minty and fruity-green whiffs of eucalyptus, ravensara, combava, lemongrass, lavender, gurjun, and buchu, topped by pineapple-y woody green Herbe des roisŽ.

The sharp green gourmand burst softens up then into a heart of neroli in two phases: A green floral lactonic accord of geranium Bourbon, neroli and rice; An accord of sweet heady blue lotus, juicy green melon, vanilla and soft orris with violet-powdery-chocolatey tones. 

The deliciously green powdery aura becomes darker with a green earthy damp woody blend of calamus reed, hay absolute, carrot seed, driftwood and aged patchouli, remind of deforested areas overexploited for rice growing.

A distortion of the classic fougère, green and yummy sweet powdery yet dark and ominous, highlighting the over-consumption of rice as a major factor behind the destruction of the island’s forest cover.
