Alex Simone En Terrasse Eau de Parfum 7.5mlLookfantastic.com
Citrus; Woody Top Notes: Grapefruit, Tangerine. Heart Notes: Patchouli, Cedar Wood, Gurjum. Base Notes: Amarylis Sandalwood, Oud, Cypriol Nagarmota. 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 whimsical summer getaways to his grandparent’s home on the picturesque 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. A time capsule suspended in a hazy, sun-drenched daydream, En Terrasse evokes a moment sipping cocktails with friends beneath palm fronds on a café terrace overlooking the bay of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Bursting open with crisp, bright notes of sparkling citrus powerful enough to quench your thirst, the sillage develops into a floriental heart of Patchouli and resinous Gurjun before being anchored by a woody base of balsamic Oud and musky Sandalwood. 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.
