Traveling to Madagascar, Cuba or the Dominican Republic in one go is a pleasure that we definitely want to allow ourselves on frosty winter days. Moreover, such a trip will only require you to concentrate your sense of smell and a pinch of memories, because nothing warms up better than warm moments from the bins of memory. By the way, it was they who became the main source of inspiration for the leading perfumer of Maison Christian Dior Francois Demachy, the creator of the new Spice Blend fragrance. But that is another story.
As you know, smells and tastes that we encounter in childhood become the cause of nostalgic thoughts and memories in adulthood. For François, such a permanent object of passion was Bay Rum - a lotion that stood on the shelf in his father's pharmacy.
“Although I do not thoroughly remember the smell of Bay Rum lotion, famous during my childhood, I remember very well what the bottle looked like when it was on the shelf in my father's pharmacy and piqued my curiosity. Its very name attracted to distant wanderings to palm trees and tropical seas. You literally felt the spray of the sea breeze and the thick smell of spices in the air with your skin,”says Demachy.
The after-shave disinfectant awakened in the boy a serious thirst for travel, instilled a love for the exoticism of hot countries and, in the end, was reborn in the olfactory pyramid of the perfumer's new creation.
The main party in the sound of the aroma went to spices, which were selected according to the criterion of maximum compatibility. Their warming singing harmoniously merges with a unique polyphony of spices: Russian coriander, Indonesian nutmeg, Madagascar black pepper and Chinese cinnamon. Piquant accents - woody, lemon, ginger and alluring musky - bring order to this hot polyphony.
The main intrigue of the fragrance and its lucky star is Roma absolute. Imagine a combo of fresh burnt sugar and a delicious baba and you will immediately understand why this fragrance is doomed to become a favorite on the perfume shelf of any strong woman. Such a duet speaks the language of elegant masculinity and awakens in the soul something ancient and primordial, something that is in the soul of every person, be it a woman or a man: a thirst to conquer hearts, seas and new lands, to be a hero of their time.
“The new Spice Blend is the epitome of children's exoticism. It envelops with warming notes of exotic spices, intertwined with each other, and, like a whirlwind, at the same time kindles the flame and gives off a refreshing breeze.
