Basically, it’s fierce, bold and unstoppable in a bottle.
"For a sense of adventure"
Anything but ordinary, Free Spirit is the life of the party (ahem, sounds familiar?). The fragrance opens with a sweet burst of Bergamot and further blends with a rich sprinkle of Grapefruit and Pink pepper to enchant your senses. The recipe also includes a subtle aroma of Amber, Oud and Musk that makes this unconventional scent that much more intriguing. Oh, and it cuts straight through the humidity and brightens the mood.
"You keep me safe, I’ll keep you wild"
Let the power of Cypress, Birch and Amber bathe you with this warm, alluring fragrance. We’re talking about the most anticipated scent from this line, Wild For You. As the name suggests, this bottle screams raw, authentic and unafraid of exploring aka the real deal. Spritz this on for a long-lasting scent of suede and praline that exudes a sense of fearlessness. The result: a luminous, sexy scent. Save it for your next scheduled date.
"It never stops being fun"
If you’re all about the fun and meet Croc N Roll. After the initial girly-girl explosion, expect a more impressive Orange blossom and Osmantus drydown. To top it up, this scent exudes femininity with layers of Musk, Leather and Amber blending comfort with bursts of spontaneity for the ones who aren’t afraid to bare their soul.
"Dare to be different"
Spot on, an unforgettable scent that is just as distinctive as you. This scent is for the ones who dare to be different and charismatic. This captivating organic fragrance opens with a gratifying dose of Bergamot, Tea and Osmanthus that further blends with a harmony of oriental blossoming scents that leave a trail of charm behind. It's both uplifting and comforting. In other words, this perfume has guts. There, we said it.
"Marching to the beats of her drum"
