Elise Benat was born and raised in the Mediterranean, South of France. She still remembers with admiration the aromas of maquis, myrtle and salt. As a teenager, Elise Benat traveled to exotic corners of the planet and this was to later impact on her future work and lead to the creation of the most delicate and surprising aromas.
When she attended her first smell training course, while studying chemistry, it was a real eye-opener for her. From that moment, the determined young lady firmly decided on her future. Her dream came true when she joined the Firmenich team. Elise Benat likes reading. She also finds inspiration in art. She enjoys the emotions she get when she succeeds in translating words into aromas.
No matter how much men strive to look serious and busy with issues of highest importance, they also wish to be attractive for women. It is always in the back of their minds, should they keep it secret or express it openly. Intellect, style and a classy fragrance are their main assistants in this enthralling game. Thanks to collaboration with the French perfumer Karine Vinchon, M.INT created its perfume “TIME TO TARGET” especially for the fans of exclusive fragrances.
This fragrance is a condensed essence of style, self-control and true aristocracy. “TIME TO TARGET” embodies power, self-confidence and elegance, qualities which women are always looking for in their partners. The wearer of such an intriguing scent will not pass unnoticed.
The top accord of the fragrance is composed of a fresh green note of bergamot, a bright cocktail of freshly picked exotic fruit and a spicy sexy note of lavandin. It sounds bold yet not excessively, it promises pleasure and makes it clear that the time spent with the wearer is not a loss. The middle accord opens with the resinous heaviness of galbanum, the delicate spiciness of pink pepper and the deep and sensual scent of patchouli leaf. The heart of the perfume also features notes of cedar wood – a symbol of masculinity in perfumery. The middle accord of the perfume smells is calmer than its top notes and renders the main idea behind the fragrance. The base accord is composed of classical masculine trio of musk, leather and oak moss. “TIME TO TARGET” is the ideal choice for business events, but its composition is beautiful in the evening as well. It is nicely heavy in the way that is characteristic of citrus compositions for men. The perfume is characterised by lastingness, tenacity and a wonderful aftertaste.
