Sel de Vetiver - Eau de Parfum 3oz
A salty and sweet harmonious scent, sensual and fresh, the scent of the skin's softness after one has bathed in the sea. To create this astonishing fragrance, Celine Ellena worked with two essential oils of different extractions. The first one is obtained by traditional steam extraction: the essence is earthy, heavy and sour. The second is of a molecular origin whereby only the lightest molecules are kept to obtain a more transparent scent.
The dusty effect has vanished, the zest of grapefruit is stronger, the woody notes warmer. Ceylan cardamom and grapefruit from Florida are used for the sensation of humidity and freshness. Geranium from the Bourbon islands and livéche give the fragrance are salty sensation. Haitian vetiver and Indonesian patchouli are working the sour and spicy warmth.
