Originally launched in 2006 under the name Mandarine Tout Simplement this gorgeous summer fragrance has been brought back by popular demand as a limited edition called Mandarine.
Based on the mandarin orange, the fruit of the tropical mandarin tree, it opens with zesty green mandarin – its sharp greenness offsets the luscious sweetness of the citrusy orange. There’s ginger here too, adding a warm note that keeps the mandarin on its toes. At the heart, aromatic yellow mandarin, tart and fresh, is paired with frangipani, which adds a lovely, exotic jasmine/peach accord. This has the effect of lulling the wearer into a sensuous, tropical vibe. The base keeps it going with red mandarin succulent, sweet and juicy, anchored by camphorous cedar wood.
The perfect complement to a hot summer’s day.
Light, refreshing and reviving, the EdT concentration, doesn’t hang around too long like an unwanted in-law, but can be re-applied as needed.
Notes: Green mandarin orange, ginger yellow mandarin orange, frangipani, red mandarin, and white cedar
