Eva is the daughter of an Englishman who left his country for a forest of orange groves. Under the scorching Sicilian sun, the young English rose runs barefoot on the hot, fertile ground. She is inebriated by the smooth aroma of bitter orange and she charms those who pass her with her fresh and lively nature. Eva will never leave this radiant and restless countryside. She will become an artist, and showcase this nature in the gardens and parks of the grand Baroque villas of Noto.
Top: Passionfruit, Petitgrain, Lemon Heart

Base: Amber, Musk, Sandalwood
HOW IT WEARS
Eva opens with a powerful citrus bang, there is the perfect blend of sweet and sour in the citrus notes. Then gradually the Orange Blossom comes into play and creates the creaminess that we love in Orange Blossom, and that balances perfectly with the sharpness of Citrus. A soft, mellow and elegant base creates a lovely warmth on the skin that also helps the fragrance last for 6 – 8 hours easily.
We love the romance of Sicily – the bright, hot sun, the citrus notes wafting in the air and of course, the flowers in full bloom. Ahh to be in Italy, enjoying the Sicilian landscapes right now. Well, this fragrance can take you there in such an elegant and romantic way. Utterly feminine, the Orange Blossom in Eva is just intoxicating when worn.
