A story of tropical showers and the balmy climate of a far away island.
LA PLUIE (rain cloud). Conjuring the inky blue-black of clouds heavy with rain and the heightened sense of expectancy before a thunderstorm, this fragrance is richly suggestive of tropical showers and the balmy climate of a far away island. Top notes of bergamot Italy, tangerine, lavender and a hint of blé absolute (wheat) refresh the heart of wet, white flowers. The centrepiece is a tropical accord of ylang ylang absolute from the Comoro islands, framed by Egyptian cassie absolute, jasmine absolute and Tunisian orange flower. The warm and sensual base is finally revealed with vetiver bourbon and vanilla bourbon which take their name from their country of origin, the Ile de Bourbon, an old, forgotten name for the Island of Réunion.
Applying to the upper breast area is sensual and intimate and on your hair, back of the neck and your scarf is a very personal touch and a great way of achieving that ~sillage~ effect. Hair is incredibly porous and a great carrier for scent so spray your hands with fragrance, let the alcohol evaporate and then run fingers through your hair. Don~t spray directly as the alcohol in your fragrance can be damaging to dry hair.
