Description

Santal Massoïa’s airy opening is lightly green, with an almost violet effect. The woody-milky combination of massoia (a rare and protected tree that grows in Indonesia) and sandalwood grants the fragrance a fig-tree-like impression. Santal Massoïa also reveals a dulce de leche accord, a resinous note and a few spicy facets. Perfumer: Jean-Claude Ellena.

History

A gentle, lightly floral and airy wood scent, Santal Massoïa is a fragrance in the Hermessence collection.

A fragrance for him and for her found in Hermès boutiques.
