An expression of the Mediterranean spirit and the feeling of complete freedom when looking out onto the open seas. A fresh and clean fragrance bringing the Spanish sea breeze to life with a subtle, warm heart. Inspired by the boats docking on the shores of Barcelona, Costarela is the ultimate by-the-seaside scent. Bright and fresh with a warm and earthy base, Costarela is like the delicious scent of salty fresh skin straight out of the ocean. Cheerful and lighthearted, Costarela captures the Mediterranean marine note beautifully.
Top: Italian Bergamot, Saffron
Middle: Marine Accord, Sand Accord
Base: Virginian Cedarwood, Ambroxane, Amber
HOW IT WEARS
Costarela opens with a burst of Bergamot, then the beautiful salty sweet ocean notes take hold and simmer on the skin. We find the longevity of Costarela quite good, generally between 6 to 8 hours. The final scent settles on a warm, smooth and uplifting base of Amber, Ambroxan and a touch of salty, beachy vibes.
We love the way that Costarela balances salty, sweet and citrus perfectly. Costarela is like the sexy skin smell of a day spent in the wild and beautiful open ocean.
