Imagine you’re alongside the artist in the studio. What is inspiring him to create? He recalls this volcanic island, somewhere in the Mediterranean. He recalls the colors and smells of Tangier where pistachio mixes with saffron. He recalls all his past or imaginary trips that still awaken his senses. Inspiration is a fantastic journey between memories and desires in the present.
Top: Aldehydes, saffron.
Heart: Grilled pistachio, juniper wood, driftwood.
Base: Oud, ambergris, cypriol, vetiver, fumed styrax.
Intriguing mix of pistachios, wood and aldehyde with hints of aquatic notes and incense. Softer and less brutal than I originally expected given the artist it is named for. Evocative and engaging scent.
The Faces of Francis parfum by Vilhelm is a captivating fragrance that expertly combines both elegance and complexity. Its blend of notes offers a harmonious balance between floral, woody, and spicy elements. The initial burst of citrus and florals gives way to a warm, lingering base that exudes sophistication. The longevity and sillage of this fragrance are impressive, making it suitable for both daytime and evening wear. Overall, Faces of Francis is a memorable and versatile scent that leaves a lasting impression.
