Launching in September, Aesop have remastered their now 10 year old fragrance with the new Aesop Marrakech Intense, designed by Barnabé Fillion. This is going to be huge. I can feel it.
The notes of the fragrance are as follows: a top of bergamot, cardamom and cloves; a warm yet fresh heart of neroli, jasmine and rose and finally an almost ouded base of cedar. In fact a traditional middle-eastern oud is pretty spot on as a description, but despite having the warmth and pounding heat of an oud, it’s simultaneously uplifting and lightening – the powerdery and dusty rose is particularly provoking.
You’d expect something a little more herbal/holistic from Aesop as their product scents tend to follow this tradition but despite complementing the brand perfectly; I could see this working just as well outside in any perfumery or beauty hall.
Aesop Marrakech Intense will be launching September 2014 and will be priced at £53 for 50ml.
