The perfume opens with aldehydes, bergamot, nutmeg, sweet orange and Estragon. The heart is collected of cedarwood, intense and sweet jasmine, iris, patchouli, rose, sandalwood and tobacco. The base exposes amber, musk, oak, Tonka beans and vanilla. The bottle was styled by Karl Lagerfeld and the nose behind this fragrance is Ron Winnegrade. He moved on to Jean Patou just three years later, and continued there for five years, designing two haute couture collections each year. His early designs were contentious for their low necklines, low backs and short skirt.
