Sitting in a classy hand-blown Italian Murano glass bottle, the perfume took over three years and 494 perfume trials before it was finally launched to the public. And why not! The fragrance, a mix of amber, sandalwood, musk, rare pure Indian agarwood, pure Turkish rose, patchouli ylang-ylang and frankincense will stay on your skin for over 12 hours and up to 30 days on the fabric.
