    by Maria Candida Gentile

    Maria Candida Gentile's collection of three new perfumes - LeucoKitrea and Syconium - takes its name from Nikolai Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee.
    In the opera for which Rimsky-Korsakov wrote Flight of the BumblebeeThe Tale of Tsar Sultanthe main character is magically transformed into an insect in order to reach his father, the king, and declare that the rumours of his death are not true. It's a flight that expresses the desire to live and opens the door to hope for a brighter future.
    The recovery of a harmonious relationship between man and nature has always been at the center of Maria Candida Gentile's values, and all her perfumes are meant to express this
    These three new perfumes are connected by the honey note, the rediscovery of nature, and the acknowledegement of its fraility, the same that characterizes us as humans.
    Kitrea is the union of the citruses and the sea, the dream of an island full of lemons, the yellow of the sun that makes their peels shine from afar, and the wind that carries the smell of the unlimited, salty horizon.
    It's the freedom of the waves, and the inviting taste of the south.
    It's an invitation to life, unconditioned.
    NOTES: Honey, winter lemon, bergamot, fresh fruit, grey amber, beeswax

    1. Lots of lemon. 3 Star Review

      Posted by on 6th Jun 2016

      I love the creamy, sweet amber and beeswax combo in this. It makes the fragrance sometimes smell of lemon cheesecake, and I enjoy that facet of the fragrance. But sometimes I catch wafts of this from my skin and it smells like sour, lemon scented floor cleaner, dirty mop water, and honeyed lemon cough drops, which is decidedly less pleasant to me.
