Famagusta is named after the coastal town on the island of Cyprus. It is an olfactory tribute to the Chypre family of fragrances. Working with Dr. Sebastian Reuter from Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Erik Kormann has createda provocative, androgynous scent. Famagusta is built around cassie (sweet acacia) a mimosa species used in perfumery. Its green-floral, soft and sweet-violet-like, animalistic fragrance perfectly matches the smoky notes of cedar, patchouli and musk. The dry, almost bitter-sweet character is underlined by a combination of vetiver, tonka and oakmoss. Famagusta features a top notes of cassie (sweet acacia); middle notes of vetiver, tonka bean and oakmoss; and base notes of cedarwood, patchouli and musk. It is an eau de toilette, edt.
