Trailing bougainvillea flowers along rocky coastal beaches, long seafood lunches served with crisp wine, and a lifestyle of subtle luxury and relaxation define the Mediterranean sea town.

Taking cues from Mociun's jewelry line, we worked to create a fragrance you could wear everyday that felt special, like her signature of delicate gold bands decorated with unusual combinations of diamonds and rare stones. The combination of bright and bitter Italian neroli flowers with warm, skin-enhancing amber and clean white musk are unmistakable yet very wearable.
