The rare and exotic cassie flower is not easily tamed. Intoxicating, bestial, bordering on coarse, its fragrance is from another era: the Thirties, when women dared to wear voluptuous, disturbing scents. Using such old fashioned ingredients as mimosa absolute, jasmine absolute, cassie absolute and rose absolute, with carnation as counterpoint, and a vanilla and sandalwood base, Dominique Ropion has achieved a very precise, contemporary translation of this theme from the past. Rich, intricate, complex – like an haute couture gown. Une Fleur de Cassie was made for connoisseurs.

Notes: Mimosa, Jasmine, Black Locust, Rose, Carnation, Sandalwood, Vanilla
