Is there anything better for summer than a fresh, tart, orange-lemon opening followed by an oolong tea & white musk duo? Don’t let the name mislead you. The chemical bonding here isn’t your average science experiment. Instead, it’s the flirty alchemy of notes harmonizing. We adore how the citrus lingers through the drydown, reaching the subtle base of amber and musk on our skin. Wake up, relax, and ease into your summer morning here.
Notes include smooth citrus cocktail, tea, blackberry, dewy peony, vetiver, amber, and powdery musk.
