Citrus, Floral Top Notes: Bergamot, Tangerine, Citrus Blossom. Heart Notes: Jasmine, Cyclamen, Coriander. Base Notes: Transparent Musk, Sandalwood, Black Pepper. From Monte-Carlo with love, luxury Monaconian brand of home fragrances, Alex Simone, presents its first EDP collection of six editions, all inspired by founder Eric Rousseau’s whimsical summer getaways to his grandparent’s home on the picturesque French Riviera. Playing with juxtaposed facades of both femininity and masculinity, the brand’s philosophy perfectly portrays the beauty and ‘bon vivant’ notion of life on the Mediterranean coastline, with expertly blended notes that evoke a stolen dream of days spent on the Còsta d’Azur. Villa Simone is an intoxicating and energising fragrance that captures the first rays of the early morning sun, when a new day awakens in the Mediterranean seaside villa, with a zesty shower of citrusy freshness. As the sun ascends, it warms the Jasmine and Cyclamen, unleashing an aromatic olfactory bouquet, mingled with refreshing Coriander, before settling on a warm and spicy drydown of Sandalwood and Black Pepper. Bottled in a sleek, metal-capped glass flacon, tastefully embellished with a signature grosgrain tuxedo bow to symbolise androgyny.
