37 degrees in the shade. Citrus fever, cut kalamansi, spicy bergamot. Ba-ti-kan-ga! Tasting a freshly squeezed bergamot mixed with chili inspired Thibaud Crivelli to create a citrusy, spicy and woody accord, providing a totally new approach to this key perfume raw material. The juicy, effusive and luminous facet of bergamot is balanced with orange and gives way to a hot chili heart note. This citrusy-spicy duo contrasts with warm notes of myrrh, while the hazelnut facet of vetiver prolongs the rounded aspect of the iconic fruit.
“I used the iconic top note of bergamot in a very original way in this fragrance, as here it becomes the heart of the perfume. My focus is not only on its zesty facets, nor on its floral aspects, but rather on its subtle bitterness and touch of sharpness. This fragrance is structured so as to amplify bergamot. Its bitterness is coupled with pomelo and rhubarb, and then heightened by vetiver and fenugreek base notes. Its fresh sharp touch is faceted by the noticeable presence of cardamom.” - Bertrand Duchaufour
