This luxurious amber perfume is sensuous, soft and delightful with a resinous base.
The sparkling and piquant top notes of bergamot, pink pepper and cardamom are a fleeting pleasure, before the sensuous, velvety, buttery, powdery floral and ambergris heart envelops you. The amber base of caramel, tonka, vanilla and the spicy smoky oud and cedar finally reveal a darker promiscuity. This scent is irresistibly sensuous on the skin and exudes luxury, seduction and charm.
The god Mercury was Messenger to the gods, as famous for his quick intellect, guile and charm as for his dark side: he was fickle, untrustworthy, promiscuous and the collector of souls to the underworld. He ruled wealth and fortune; commerce and fertility; science and medicine; and finally storytelling – from writers and poets to rascals and conmen! The most popular of the gods, Mercury was adored for his irresistible charm and wit and the inspiration for this sensuous and seductive scent.

“This scent is classified as the definitive Amber oriental. All Electimuss perfumes have this subtle [sensuousness] as an undertone, but if you want something less classically sexy and more sweetly seductive, this is a perfect one.”
