CITRUS AFFAIR

CITRUS AFFAIR

by Marie Huguenot

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship”

“Knowst thou the land where the lemon trees bloom, / Where the gold orange glows in the deep thicket’s gloom, / Where a wind ever soft from the blue heaven blows, / And the groves are of laurel and myrtle and rose? / Know’st thou it, then? ‘Tis there! ‘tis there, / O my belov’d one, I with thee would go!”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship”

Brightly cheerful CITRUS AFFAIR translates a road trip along the Amalfi Coast into an olfactory experience. A dazzling citrus opening notes are followed by fresh floral tones in the heart of the perfume that transcends into warm base tones of musk and sandalwood. The scent was inspired by the poem “Mignon” from “Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, in which the titular child, saved by Wilhelm from an unkind theatre troupe, reminisces about beloved Italy.

“The dazzling CITRUS AFFAIR fragrance opens with vibrant fresh ginger paired with bright lemon and joyful mandarin. Delicate citrus flowers lie in its heart while the base notes of musk and sandalwood give an elegant yet sensuous sillage. My inspiration was a road trip I did last spring: the bright and vibrant lemons are souvenirs from Sorrento, and the mandarin and orange flowers bloom in the cities and gardens along the Amalfi coast. All scents Goethe could have experienced himself during his trip from Napoli to Sicily.”
