The nosey details:
Souvenirs De Tunisie Eau De Parfum:
This has a white flower heart, tweaked with fresh notes of orange blossom absolute drenched in water, blended with fresh bergamot and enticing neroli. The magnificent blend of sandalwood and orange wood in the dry-down is lightly sweetened by fresh almonds, conjuring in mind the smell of pastries freshly baked on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea.

Lumiere D’Iris Eau De Parfum:
An ultimate chic vibe in the sunshine of the Côte d’Azur. A scent that bounces between flower and wood, masculine and the feminine, light and mystery, to impart a whole in balance.

Sur La Plage Eau De Parfum
Make waves with this floral marine fragrance that transports you to the sun-drenched beach. The scent of bare skin under the sun, refreshed by the salty waters, caressed by the balmy air, enriched by orange blossoms, magnolia, and jasmine is nothing less than divine. This is the scent of the beach: an ode to sensuality, a dive into pure pleasure. It’s heavenly alone and deliciously sinful when shared with another.
