|Van Cleef & Arpels Oriens|
Ever since they created their very first fragrance, back in 1976, the Orient has been a cherished theme at the house of Van Cleef & Arpels, a concept at the root of their inspiration. With Van Cleef & Arpels Oriens aims to recreate the olfactory splendor of the Orient in a bottle incorporating the codes of fine jewelry. Imposingly inspired by one of the houses rings, it is set with a multi-color gemstone. Despite the name, Oriens is not, olfactorily speaking, an oriental scent, but rather a modern chypre with oriental accents.
Van Cleef & Arpels Oriens proposes a journey to the heart of sensuality and opulence. The top notes of this olfactory adventure include waves of citrus blended with red berries, which gradually yield to a more floral, voluptuous heart of sun-drenched and jasmine-y notes, before patchouli, enhanced with a gourmand praline, introduces the warm and sensual trail.
