Muda de Comporta is an aroma evokes the sunset between the beaches of Comporta and La Muda. For this he needed orange, lemon and geranium leaves at the start. And absolute coffee, Damascus rose and jasmine in the heart. For the base notes: patchouli, saffron, vanilla, myrrh, musk. A perfume that mixes floral notes with the aroma of cardamom and toasted beans, ideal for use in a sunset at night.
“Thank you Marta for letting others use your perfume.”
