An exhilarating explosion. Grapefruit issues a taut, sizzling rallying cry that brings bergamot and mandarin quickly to heel. Bowed beneath the governing sizzle of grapefruit, bergamot signature tang is almost creamy and docile, while mandarin is as insistently luminous as ever, but refracted through the pixilating energy of grapefruit. Fresh, modern energy is the provenance of ginger, and in Bonne Fortune it supplies the golden glint that lends this fragrance it’s golden sense of luck. As ginger blesses each forthcoming element with its shimmering magic, it transforms the texturally, becoming creamy and surprisingly transparent. Beneath ginger’s golden touch, mint is a vibrantly green, almost sweet spot of cool, against the spicy, unctuous, sensual grit of vetiver. Gaiac wood is a streamlining force, tonally comparable to ginger, a warm beige force that solidifies and strengthens. Tonka bean is a darker bronze, a shimmering, crunchy sweetness that offers an audible counterbalance to gaiacwood’s seamless silence. Cedar ensconces both these sumptuous grounding forces and lends Bonne Fortune a sinuous, smoky energy that emanates a mysterious allure, balancing out the candid intensity of citrus. Searingly fresh yet silky soft, Bonne Fortune is a thrilling revelation.
