BERLIN— Spring is breaking with a summer breeze from Mona di Orio. The playfully named Eau Absolue, the new zesty woody fragrance from the Amsterdam-based, French-born niche house, makes its way to stores this month.
Eau Absolue begins with citrus top notes of bergamot, mandarin, clementine and petitgrain, which are joined by vetiver, pink peppercorn and St. Thomas Bay Leaf, and finished with a balsamic dry down of cedar wood, musk and cistus labdanum. The 100-ml. eau de parfum is priced at 160 euros, or $205 at current exchange.
