French beauty spa brand La Sultane de Saba have launched a new Oriental fragrance called after its three main materials, Ambre, Musc, Santal...
The scent follows up on the previous 2014 release Champaka Fleurs Tropicales Voyage sur la Route de Malaisie.
La Sultane de Saba is one of those spa and beauty brands originally which take fragrance seriously visibly refusing by temperament to cave in to the less-is-more trend with a particular attention to the scent that waft from their beauty products. Its founder, art director and nose, Vanessa Sitbon, adds overdoses of perfume to her rituals which become extremely sensory. Like Serge Lutens, but with a different style, she is fundamentally inspired by the olfactory culture of Morocco with which her family has been familiar for three generations.
Ambre, Musc, Santal is meant to be an example of emotional perfumery.
The eau de parfum opens on top notes of orange and lemon peels fading into a spicy heart of cedarwood, vetiver and sandalwood. The base offers two overarching notes of incense and musk.
