Eau Absolue is a memoir steeped in Mona di Orio’s love for the Mediterranean. Composed in her signature olfactory chiaroscuro construction, the scent envelopes in joyous warmth.
Eau Absolue effervesces like a summer breeze carrying a zestful bouquet of bergamot, mandarin, clementine and petitgrain. These bright, convivial citruses splash against the epicurean spice of pink peppercorn.
The scent becomes earthy and softly floral, with whispers of geranium, dry vetiver and balsamic St. Thomas bay leaf. The nocturnal shade intensifies, arching ever deeper, until plunging directly into a caress of cistus labdanum, the ambry smell of the Mediterranean, and sensual musk, an elegant and intoxicating denouement.
