Base Notes ambroxan black pepper frankincense iris

Laskarina* is a fresh bliss with lots of focus on Mediterranean citruses shaded with a soft sea breeze nuance and honeyed orange blossom at the heart of the composition.

Conceptually it's an homage to Greece, the Mediterranean sea  and one legendary woman who mastered lots of elements, water, social convention, the art of war:  Laskarina. (hence the rose that doesn't smell like your conventional rose).

Wiki sums up the facts about her in the following passage: * "Laskarina "Bouboulina" Pinotsis was a Greek naval commander, heroine of the Greek War of Independence in 1821, and allegedly the first woman-admiral of the Imperial Russian Navy."

Perfumer: Amélie Bourgeois

What Men Should Smell Like on Laskarina. “You could say itembodies the iron fist in a velvet glove.” The delicate opening begins with crisp citrus notes tinged with green. Piquant pink berries create coolness and a subtle pear sorbet note is decorated in orange blossoms. Ambrocenide, one of the more aggressive woody-amber molecules in the perfumer’s arsenal, black peppercorns and frankincense diminish any aura of conventional prettiness. These notes transform Bulgarian rose’s pink petals into a dark velvety red colour."  Read more.
