The man has always dreamt of wings and this metaphor has a very personal meaning for each of us. Some are inspired by their loved ones, others - by the success achieved through hard work, creative achievements or sports victories. M.INT’s “WINGED HEART” perfume has been created to let you spread your wings. It instils hope, confidence and positive attitude. The Perfumer Christian Rostain has perfectly accomplished the task of creating a perfume that will impress and be remembered for a long time.
The freshness of the top greenish bergamot note resonates with the ice citrus shade of lemon and the herbal note of absinthe. The middle accord features a hot and sharp clove note, blossoming sweet and languid orange flowers, numerous spices merging into an amazing chorus reminiscent of colourful oriental bazaars. The heart of the perfume also features the exotic Balsam of Peru. The Balsam and its imitations are used in perfumery when you wish to introduce resin and vanilla nuances. The base accord introduces an intense musk note. Balsam of Peru and musk are the most enduring tones of the fragrance. This combination lends exceptional lastingness to the perfume. The confident musk scent complements the natural scent of the wearer’s skin which allows the perfume to settle on the body exceptionally well. This perfume is opalescent, rich and bold. It will appeal to those who follow fashion trends, those who wish to look stylish and intriguing and are not afraid of experimenting and being eccentric.
