An elegant and distinctive fragrance, carried by the choice of an unusual ingredient, the white cocoa.
A rare variety, this white cocoa grows in the heart of the oldest plantations, in Piura, north-west Peru. Extracted by hand from the pods, the beans are fermented before being sun-dried and roasted.
In order to capture the most beautiful facets of this white cocoa, the perfumer collaborated with a French Maître Chocolatier to obtain the perfect roasting, thus revealing sensual nutty and milky notes, with Tonka bean undertone.
After a sweet rum opening, the perfumer Marie Hugentobler unveils the addictive bitterness of the cocoa, comforted by powdery and woody notes. A dry down of light tobacco, patchouli and sandalwood follows, giving CACAO PORCELANA its sensual and unique signature.

"Cacao Porcelana is inspired by childhood memories with my grandparents. The smell of chocolate blends with the scent of tobacco and Patchouli perfume. A true Proustian madeleine."
