The Scent Pyramid

J’Adore’s triumph lies in its carefully-arraigned olfactory profile, which balances so many separate notes in perfect harmony:

Top Notes: A Lithe Sunrise

J’adore presents itself with a lively, sparkly symphony of fruity-floral notes that feel as if they are dancing on the nose. It opens with a medley of pear, melon, peach fused with hints of magnolia atop a clean mandarin orange and bergamot opening. The blend suggests freshness and emanates the shine of youth, laying the foundation for a deeper story.

Heart: The Luxurious Inner Core

The hub where the J’adore revolves is a true-floral. Comorian ylang-ylang essential oil and Turkish Damask rose absolute imbue the scent with that heady, rich quality for which we know it today, giving it the classic floral signature. The Grandiflorum from Grasse and Indian Jasmine Sambac, bring a sensual and almost tactile richness to the heart of this Eau. Supported by tuberose, lily-of-the-valley, freesia, rose, orchid, plum and violet, the heart of J’adore is a celebration of its expert female brain.

Base: A Sensual Ending

Its musk, vanilla, and cedar base will leave you warm and intrigued. A hint of blackberry shows a touch of juiciness rustle in at the last minute, lingering, a final breath that recalls the eternal elegance of a woman who knows her allure, and owns it.
