Do we ever know where a fragrance might lead us? Regardless of the intended destination, the journey is filled with unexpected surprises and the arrival is sometimes even more beautiful than we had imagined.
Coco Noir is the fruit of this implacable mystery that makes great fragrances and the ties that give them meaning. It has all the freshness and power of new creations, the furious taste of freedom and yet it has something of a continuity. And soon there is Coco Noir, another journey in the wake of a Gabrielle who fully embraced the dazzle of black and Venice.
She had travelled there to mourn the only man she ever loved, Boy Capel. She realized that she didn’t like fussy dresses, and she wasn’t going to fuss about when it came to matters of the heart. She drew strength from her discovery of the city and all of the wonders it had to offer.
Coco Noir is the magnificent evocation of that woman in that city and all those women today who choose intensity over the bland norm, and true luxury over vulgarity. The base of Coco Noir is layered with sandalwood, vetiver, frankincense, patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean and a musky note. Coco Noir is ready to take you to far and away places…
