Alex Simone L'Invitation Eau de Parfum 30mlLookfantastic.com
Woody; Floriental Top Notes: Carnations, Red Berries, Red Rose. Heart Notes: Geranium, Patchouli. Base Notes: Dry Woods, Myrrh, Labdanum. From Monte-Carlo with love, luxury Monaconian brand of home fragrances, Alex Simone, presents its first EDP collection of six editions, all inspired by founder Eric Rousseau’s sun-drenched summers at his grandparent’s home on the quaint French Riviera. Playing with juxtaposed facades of both femininity and masculinity, the brand’s philosophy perfectly portrays the beauty and ‘bon vivant’ attitude of life on the Mediterranean coastline, with expertly blended notes that evoke a stolen dream of days spent on the Còsta d'Azur. L’Invitation represents a surreptitious rendezvous to suite 115 in the heat of the night, channelling bold, seductive and androgynously sexy notes evocative of intense passion and magnetic attraction. Honeyed threads of tangy berries cut through a romantic and powdery melange of red Rose, Carnation, Geranium and Patchouli, before blending into a decadent drydown of heady Myrrh and Labdanum. Bottled in a sleek, metal-capped glass flacon, tastefully embellished with a signature grosgrain tuxedo bow to symbolise the androgyny of the fine fragrance collection. Made in France.
