The Inspiration Behind the Scent: Cap-d'Ail
Our Cap-d’Ail fragrance with notes of jasmine, amber, mandarin, cedar, sandalwood, and dark musk was created and inspired by my time living in Nice, France.
I spent 7 months living on the Côte d’Azur in Nice nearby this aromatic muse. During this time, I had also spent some time studying perfumery in nearby Grasse at Galimard. My nose became opened to a world of olfaction and hyper aware of all the scents and aromas that came my way. I would often visit my aromatic muse of Cap’d”ail.
A beach nestled right outside of Monaco, Cap-d’Ail calls for those who seek respite along the beachside cliffs of the Mediterranean Sea.
When creating this fragrance, I took Inspiration from the everpresent jasmine plant that is native to the region with a sweet and sultry fusion of mandarin and rich amber. The amber is reminiscent of the warm sun that kisses your skin. The mandarin calls from a memory of making fresh sashimi with slices of this citrus sprinkled on top in the nearby village of Èze. Subtle undertones of sandalwood and musk complement this full-bodied fragrance, paying homage to the richness of culture and topography that is France.
Cap-d'Ail will give you the feeling of sipping a light rose on the rock covered Plage de la Mala in the French Rivera. Soak in this scent for the ultimate sensual luxury.
