Calice Becker is a one of the most talented signature, able to create bestsellers and niche fragrances. French origin, she lives and works in New York for eighteen years. J'adore for Dior, it's hers, Intoxicated for Kilian, too. This is with this kind of splits that we can measure Calice Becker capacity to be inspired by everything she encounters, by her travels and her history.
Her vocation was to become a doctor but Calice Becker guided her way to the welfare of souls. Guided by the creations of the artists she loves, she draws her inspiration in painting, music, or even baking and sommellerie. Her style is transformed by her meetings but she plays with notes of bitter orange that never leave her.
Eau de Parfum. A perfume as complex and dazzling as the woman who wears it.

Eau de Parfum (floral, powdery). A romantic getaway that takes us to a secret paradise under the pale moonlight. Like a dazzling glow in the night, a duo of lemon and grapefruit opens the endeavor.

Eau de Parfum (oriental,woody). No coffee tastes as good as it smells. Stimulant, aphrodisiac, sensual and vigorous, but this sublime fragrance tantalizes the tongue, nose and brain. Addicts crave a substance either as a prop against the harshnessof live or to enhance its pleasures.By Kilian
Eau de Parfum. Playing With the Devil By Kilian: When temptation becomes a game.

Eau de Parfum. Sacred Wood conjures the mystical scent with amazing accuracy: like its model, it is so rich and facetted it is a fragrance in and of itself.

Eau de Parfum. Amber Oud is a soft and sensual composition built on the fusion between these two ancestral raw materials: Amber and Oud from Cambodia.

Eau de Parfum. Pure Oud is the olfactory reconstitution of "Bakhour".
