In cooperation with perfumer Dominique Ropion, the new fragrance was create to incorporate opulent, masculine ingredients around the main theme – geranium. The idea for the clean and pure fragrance with the scent of long-lasting freshness is created of aromas of geranium from China along with rhodinol (fresh, fragrant ingredient extracted from Chinese geranium), mixed with anise and mint.
