This fragrance, like its creator, Michel Roudnitska, has a compelling and intriguing heritage. His father was Edmond, one of the great 20th Century parfumers, whose creations include Eau Savage and Diorissimo. Michel’s own career embraced many creative facets yet he was compelled to return regularly to the challenge of fragrance. Beginning with the top notes of lemon, bergamot and grapefruit, the heart of the Michel scent glows with jasmine, ylang-ylang, rose and of course magnolia. Adding richness, depth and sensuality are the subtle bottom notes of vetiver, patchouli and musk. The effect is one of limpid and rich beauty: a magnificent flower in its evocative prime.
