Description

Green, citrusy, fruity, woody and sweet, Ninfeo Mio is hard to categorize. In Isabelle Doyen’s opinion, it goes in both the woody family and the citrus family as well. The green, incisive opening might remind me you of the top notes of Un Matin d’Orange, but then the citrus fruit is more present, like a wink and a nod to L’Eau d’Hadrien. A touch of lavender and petit-grain bring a certain aromatic freshness. Then the fragrance gets thicker and sweeter, redolent of an idea of fig milk shaded with woods. This sweet, woodsy character extends all the way through the trail.

A river runs through it...

History

While they were developing the formula for a fragrance on the theme of the legendary ‘Citrus Garden’, Camille Goutal and Isabelle Doyen got a phone call from a friend in Italy: “Near Rome, there is a splendid private garden that they absolutely must come see.” Thus the two designers fell under the spell of the Ninfa garden. In the midst of that protected Eden, they came across a harmonious olfactory blend of tree barks, green leaves, ripe citrus and not-yet-ripe figs. But the garden is also crossed by an elegant little river: Ninfeo. Eureka! The name of the fragrance they’d working on for months had been found: ‘Ninfeo Mio’ (My Ninfeo, or My Own Private Ninfeo, in Italian).

Range

Eau de Toilette 1.7 and 3.4 oz.

Bottle

The fragrance comes in the square or gadroon ‘signature’ bottles, in a green hue with blue-gray accents.

    Cette figue hespéridée, un peu croquante au départ et qui vient se lover dans un fond lacté, crémeux et suave est tout simplement exceptionnelle ! Quel merveilleux travail accompli par Camille Goutal et Isabelle Doyen. Bravo !

    Il faudrait tout de même que je le teste et d'autant plus que les commentaires sont élogieux.

    Anick Goutal distingue, con ninfeo mio, o con cualquiera de sus fragancias... Delicioso, sensual, fresco, extravagante que identifica.
