Neroli Sauvage celebrates the 17th century Duchess of Nerola (a small city near Rome), whose castle and gardens were famous for jubilant summer parties. Taking its inspiration from the French word for "wild", this invigorating blend captures the luxuriant atmosphere of the Duchess' gatherings during which guests would crush neroli flowers against their skin to release the bittersweet yet invigorating floral essence. Anchored by the warmth of ambergris and spiked with verbena, Neroli Sauvage is appropriate for men and women who appreciate a crisp citrus fragrance with smooth depth.
