Eau Absolue: Les Nombres d'Or, Mona di Orio
Mona di Orio's absolutely lovely Eau Absolu Eau de Parfum, from the LES NOMBRES D'OR COLLECTION: Intrigued and attracted by this aesthetic theory, Mona di Orio imagined how she could revisit some influential classics of perfumery. Searching for the perfect proportions to reach a melodious harmony. Using the best raw materials, beautiful ingredients, precious gifts blessed with divine proportions. Close your eyes, open your nose and follow their mysterious and sensual �sillages�.
Eau Absolue is a memoir steeped in Mona di Orio�s love for the Mediterranean. Composed in her signature olfactory chiaroscuro construction, the scent envelopes in joyous warmth.
Eau Absolue effervesces like a summer breeze carrying a zestful bouquet of bergamot, mandarin, clementine and Petitgrain. These bright, convivial citruses splash against the epicurean spice of pink peppercorn.
The perfume slowly becomes earthy and softly floral, with whispers of geranium, dry vetiver and balsamic St Thomas Bay Leaf. The nocturnal shade intensifies, arching ever deeper, until plunging directly into a caress of cistus labdanum, the ambry smell of the Mediterranean, and sensual musk, an elegant and intoxicating denouement.
