Fruity Vanilla

Conjured by the perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin (the nose behind many Diptiqye, some Killian and Aedas de Venustas perfumes among others), The Princess is a fruity chypre that was always intended to have a decidedly Eastern gourmet tinge. The first impression you get from it is just how juicy, ripe and aqueous the fruits smell - a mixture of orange, grapefruit, bergamot and lychee - but it’s the layering of the musk and the jasmine that really provides the idea of the far east and of delicately hued blossom billowing in the wind. The vanilla in the base also adds a recognisable sweetness to what could otherwise be a quite fleeting perfume.
