This sampler introduces you to fragrances that feature the note of ebony. Evocative of the black decorative wood, it is a "note" appearing in niche compositions and woody fragrances where a darker element is desired.
You will receive a 1/2ml sample (1ml sample vial filled half full) of each of the fragrances in this sampler. You also have the option of choosing a 1ml sampler.
- Zara x Jo Loves Ebony Wood EDP - A balsamic woodsy fragrance with notes of pink peppercorn, clove and ebony wood. Jo says: "That moment of freedom, of carefree adventures about to begin. I think for me Ebony Wood is definitely the number one standout in the collection. It is a cashmere sweater of a young woman that’s just come out of university, and her father gives the keys to the car, and she drives down the South Pacific Highway."
- TokyoMilk Dead Sexy EDP - A romantic and ethereal scent crafted from paired fragrance notes of deep vanilla, exotic wood, white orchid and ebony.
- Jovoy Pavillon Rouge EDP - "As daylight starts to decline, a schooner is busy readying itself to dock. It’s distinctive lines leave no doubt to the sharpened eye of an onlooker. “This one must be a privateer...” mumble the old people assembled in the port as they gaze across at the looming warship; “he must have made a mistake, docking here!” As the wind rises there can be no more ambiguity for a Jolly Roger slams into view and whistles a Memento Mori that reminds us that life is fragile, so we must live it well. But here the skull and crossbones are emblazoned on a red flag, meaning a short but good life is better! Sucked in by the promises of the amber and vanilla aromas of rum and whiskey, a buccaneer rushes out onto the dock and blends into the crowd for a fleeting moment of tranquility during his overnight stopover. He knows that his proud ship will be gone before dawn. Disappeared completely, leaving only a trail of exotic spices and the precious woods of the treasures that fill his holds alongside the promise he made to an elegant woman to return one day “provided God gives her life”. With top notes of spices, sesame, whiskey and rum; middle notes of coffee, tobacco, tea and leather; and base notes of vanilla and ebony wood.
