"Intelligence & Fantasy is soft and ultra-feminine, with a crystal-clear freshness and transparency". Perfumer, Geza Schoen.
Intelligence & Fantasy opens with luminous top notes of bergamot, magnolia bud and hedione, accented with fresh-spicy pink pepper. The heart is exotic tiare, a gardenia native to Tahiti, rarely used in perfumery due to its prohibitive cost. The drydown is soft, cocooning and sensual with cashmeran, sandalwood, cedar and light musks
The Beautiful Mind Series is created by perfumer, Geza Schoen of Escentric Molecules. Frustrated by the glut of mindless celebrity scents out there, he decided to strike out in a different direction, and launch a series of fragrances co-created with women of intelligence and creativity.
The packaging for Intelligence & Fantasy is a visual representation of memories being activated in the brain. The play of colour adds the element of fantasy that is essential for creative thought.
