Description

The fragrance starts off as a snow-white petal, with dynamic, citrusy aromas, green apple and gooseberry, boldly pushing the boundaries. As we get to the fresh, yet juicy, crunchy sip, apple continues to dominate, alongside something really special note – the striking, aromatic essence of passion fruit, intertwined with sour lime and then deepened by the creaminess of green banana. Impressive balance, intense experience.
