Mandarin and violet come together in a glorious bouquet of yellow and purple: rich colours of delicate scents. A golden libation to the sun and harvest fertility gods of Old Ireland!
Naturally the perfume is built on a solar ambergris base amplified with patchouli, galbanum, vetiver and angelica. The top notes have all the exuberance of neroli, pear and mandarin orange with a green heart of Irish clover and white rose clustered in violet leaves. A glorious hymn to Irish culture and lore.
