A little more fresh and green than the original version: rose, violet, orange blossom and peony blend lightly with sandalwood and white musk.

Texas

Rugged but light—smoky cedar and amber are spiked with fresh orange.

Bali

Rose petals, jasmine, with hints of pample wood—glamorous and exotic like the island itself.

Roses, violets and lilies mix with a citrusy sea-spray element inspired by Victoria Harbour.

Peony, freesia, peach, with a hint of musk inspired by the glamorous women who vacationed on the Amalfi Coast in the 1960s.

Warm citrus notes dance with musk, blonde wood, and caramel.

The scent of the ocean, plus peony, honeysuckle, Long Island grapes and sandalwood.
