Oud Stars - Ceylon Eau de Parfum 50 ml
Ceylon is called “Teardrop of India”
A teardrop shed for an adieu or a sudden return. The wind dries on the rosy cheeks a drop of honey extract, while a cool breeze caresses a drop of bergamot from Reggio Calabria, and the sun dries up a drop of jasmin. The mists spiral up to the sky and become a cyclone in the Andaman Sea. A hurricane in whose eye whirlpools of black tea from Ceylon, Malaysian oud and Indian sandalwood swirl, wiping away the pillars of good intentions. Ceylon is the waking of a castaway with his eyes turned to the sun. The scents of Vanilla, Amber and Musk make his chin raise. The head turns upwards, unaware of being just a whiff away from the greatest boon of its life.
Top Note: Honey, Bergamot, Jasmine
Heart Note: Black Tea, Agarwood (Oud), Sandalwood
