No coffee tastes as good as it smells: but this sublime fragrance tantalises the tongue nose & brain. Addicts crave a substance either as a prop against the harshness of Life or to enhance its pleasures. INTOXICATED is emphatically the latter.
Kilian and Calice Becker conjure up the steam from an eggshell cup of rich viscous Turkish coffee laced with green cardamom used in double strength - in oil and absolute - to glow as the opulent heart of the scent. Around this swells the warm spicy fragrance of hallucinogenic nutmeg & powdered cinnamon. At the base is the crystal sweetness of burned caramelised sugar.
