005 Amorosa

In Ruth’s words: “Amorosa is a story of love: it is inspired by my time in Italy where I feel awake to the magic life offers. Amorosa is the story of a woman in love with life!”

Inspired by: the dramatic contrasts of the breathtaking Umbrian landscape: rugged mountains next to a canopy of wild flowers.

Key ingredients: Amorosa captures the power of the mountains (amber, woody base notes – patchouli, vetivert) and the vulnerability of white flowers (tuberose, jasmine), with surprising top notes of green leaves and watermelon.

Amorosa is unique because the tuberose/white flowers heart is freshened by the green, watermelon top: an unusual combination, which is embedded in a dry amber base.

Key descriptive words: fresh, vibrant, vulnerable, unexpected

Essential oils: black pepper, vetivert, neroli, ylang ylang, jasmine absolute, coriander, patchouli, cistus, fir needle, fir balsam, mandarin, galbanum
