The scent of magnolia flowers resembles citrus rather than flowers. This simple fact is the ground for new kind of floral water. Carlos Benaïm´s initial stroke is to boost the unique freshness of magnolia with bergamot, grapefruit and lemon.
He then tames it with a hint of apricot, before bringing sensuality, long lastingness and contact with the wearer´s skin with a clever cocktail of vetiver, patchouli and tree moss. Thus Eau de Magnolia is born: a seemingly simple accord, a timeless summer fragance. A childhood spent in Tangier close to natural ingredients gave Carlos Benaïm a taste for beauty. A training under legendary perfumer Ernest Shiftan gave him boldness and bravada, as for the facta that, he always comes up with these elegant accords, it must come from his mysterious inner compass, some call it talent.
