Marrakech Intense fragrance from Aesop (left to right): 10ml parfum roll on, 50ml eau de toilette spray
The new Marrakech Intense fragrance from Aesop expands its roots from the original Marrakech fragrance launched in 2005. French perfumer Barnabé Fillion lends his nose for this olfactory update, turning out a fragrance that impresses as a raw and woody oriental blend. Floral notes feature in the opening of the scent to freshen it and make their appearance again in the heart notes to give the fragrance a rounder, softer body.
Taking cues from the city of Marrakech, the fragrance reflects the aroma of spices used in traditional dishes and calls to mind the intense colours of the town. Speaking about his creation, Fillion said: "Egyptian Jasmine absolute imbues the fragrance with sensuality and links the spice elements. The Bergamot’s brilliance is extended while ensuring it blends well with the Neroli top note and the effect of the Jasmine petals. Together, these three components secure the top notes’ freshness."
Marrakech Intense is available as a 10ml parfum roll-on or a 50ml eau de toilette spray.
