Part of the ‘Evocations Collection’, telling the story of the scent of specific locations – sweet, unspoiled, eternal nature. Itasca takes us to Lake Itasca in Minnesota – the source of the Mississippi River. The scent of the forests of North America. Dense and rich in nature, the grandeur of the forest can at times be both overwhelming and beautifully breathtaking. This is the land of the Chippewa Indians who alone are privy to its secrets. Woodland scents of pine, tobacco and resin are complemented by fresh notes of wild berries and spice as they breeze through the open air of the forest. This scent evokes the scent and the secrets of the forest. A harmonious blend of notes to explore the depth of the forest through scent.

HOW IT WEARS
Gentle on the skin, we get a longevity of around 7 hours with this Eau de Parfum. For us, it smells as though we are carrying a small memory of one of our favourite outdoor destinations with us. The Minnesotan Red Pine stands out in Itasca, along with the strong Cedar and fresh Juniper Berries – both green and earthy bringing the notes of nature together perfectly.
The land of the Chippewa Indians, a lake shrouded in mystery to outsides. It carries a stark cleanliness from the Juniper Berries, Red Pine and Cedar that stand firm in the distance, Tobacco and Myrrh mix and mingle in the air with the incense notes, joining and rising up the Gods.
ABOUT THE BRAND
