On the website it says:
“Marrakech Intense is a woody oriental blend balanced by fresh floral top and heart notes, with a hint of the animalistic. In developing this evolution of our original Marrakech fragrance, we were delighted to collaborate with French perfumer Barnabé Fillion, with whom we share a passionate curiosity about the interplay between innovation and tradition, and a deep respect for the intelligent marriage of science and nature.”
Top notes: Bergamot, Cloves, Cardamon

When it opens up it’s quite sharp and intense. It smells a lot like cardamom and clove at first. As it settles in it gets warmer and rounder, which is where the sandalwood kicks in. I think adding rose and a few florals to this was a brilliant idea; it smells divine alongside all those spices and heavier notes. It’s definitely a unique perfume, I don’t have anything that smells remotely like this.
It’s unisex and honestly, if I were a guy I would wear this. It’s not overly feminine even though it has some sweet notes. This was a Christmas present from my mum, so every time I smell this it reminds me of Christmas, winter, and cosy evenings.
What’s your favourite winter perfume?
Lots of love,
