These five stunning scents from India-born, Paris-based Neela Vermeire take the wearer on a journey through ancient and modern-day India. Stories of culture, history, and autobiography unfold from these deeply complex compositions created with nose Bertrand Duchaufour, and these are stories we want to read again and again and again.
- Bombay Bling is the one that started our love affair with Vermeire's line. Bombay Bling is a lush, kaleidoscopic rendering of modern-day India. Green mango, lychee, tropical flowers, and spices explode out of the bottle like the opening number in a Bollywood musical. The tobacco note lends a masculine voice to counter the female lead, and the dry-down into a rich, sweet, woody base is truly mouth-watering.
- Ashoka is a tribute to the life of the emperor Ashoka, who turned away from his ruthless ways and embraced a life of compassion, forgiveness, and love. His story is told as the composition unfolds, from the fierce opening to a softly floral heart and the gentle, serene dry down.
- Mohur is a distinguished, spicy, leather bouquet of roses. It's inspired by Noor Jahan, the empress of the Mughal dynasty who dedicated her later life to the art of perfumery, which explains why this is a rose fit for royalty.
- Trayee is a calming, meditative scent with warm spices and soft woods. It's inspired by India's Vedic period, which was a time of enlightenment when the foundations of society were created.
- Pichola showcases the splendor of opulent and vibrant flowers, spices, and precious woods found in India's Lake Pichola.
- Features 5 fragrance samples in 1.75 ml glass vials
- Includes enough perfume for 15 - 20 wearings in each vial
