Maurice Roucel started his career as a chemist at Chanel's Fragrance Laboratory in 1973. A self-taught perfumer who describes himself as "an explorer wandering amidst his formulas," his style is that of a sensuous aesthete and his signature is a streamlined composition, in which he retains only what is essential.
In this particular composition, Maurice Roucel intended to communicate both "seduction and generosity."
