Amazingreen was introduced in 2012 as an aromatic-green fragrance aimed at women and men. Its composition is composed of palm tree leaf combined with green pepper, dew mist and jungle leaves, contributing to additional freshness. The heart incorporates ivy and coriander combined with powdery orris root, on a base of gunpowder accord, vetiver, smoke and white musk. The fragrance was signed by perfumer Jean-Christophe Herault.
CDG2 is a fragrance from 1999 playing with contrasts, light and shadows. Aldehydes open the composition in union with mandarin, tea leaves, mate tea from Paraguay and angelica. The heart adds spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, Indian bay leaf, coriander and caraway) decorated with magnolia blossom and darkened with ink. The base is tart and woody, composed of patchouli, labdanum, amber, vetiver, Chinese cedar and juniper. The fragrance was signed by perfumer Mark Buxton.
Wonderwood is a woody fragrance for men presented in 2010. Accentuated woody notes are complemented by spices and a mysterious incense trail. The blend of woody notes includes guaiac wood, vetiver, sandalwood, cedar, oud and cypress. The spices accentuate the masculine, rough side of the edition (nutmeg, Madagascar pepper, caraway), while incense and cashmeran contribute to smoky and misty effect. The perfumer of this edition is Antoine Lie.
