Bois d’Orange is a woody orange scent which is quite unisex. It’s not sweet or fruity instead it’s a warm orange with basil, cedar & a bit of neroli. It’s a half citrus perfume and half woody scent. I think this would be perfect for someone who is finding something orangey but warmer, they use quite natural ingredients like aloe vera etc in their perfumes trying to get as much as natural notes as possible.
Gingembre Rouge is a musky ginger perfume that is quite delightful to me. There’s a bit of lychee thrown in there too, it’s a typical classy scent but very very light. I would give this to someone who likes ginger fragrances and lives in a humid climate, this is something you could wear around the house to feel fresher or just after a shower.
Cedrat is a typical classic fresh lemon bergamot scent. It’s a unisex perfume and reminds of loads of other lemon scents like Acqua Di Parma. It’s refreshing and uplifting fragrance that celebrates the vibrant essence of citron, or citron fruit. This one also comes in shower gel, so if you are someone like me who loves lemony showers, you can check this one out.
Neroli Facetie is my favourite of the range, its a floral neroli which is quite aromatic, it pleasantly reminds me of going into a spa. It’s got lots of orange blossom and I really like that. As it evolves, the scent becomes richer with the inclusion of jasmine and a touch of warm spices, creating a sensuous, elegant heart.
This is a very classic light magnolia scent, nothing ground breaking just simple magnolia with a bit of orange blossom in. Definitely for someone who wants something floral and delicate, very feminine. The projection is not that great, but I like it, its soft and very soothing.
