Aesop’s Marrakech Intense is a raw and unorthodox fragrance for men and women. A woody oriental blend balanced by fresh floral top and heart notes, with a hint of the animalistic. Created in collaboration with perfumer Barnabé Fillion, it is an evolution of the brand’s first fragrance, Marrakech, launched in 2005. As its title suggests, the latest formulation builds on existing foundations to offer a discreet and sophisticated reinterpretation of the original blend’s unique elements. The city of Marrakech remained a primary inspiration for the evocative aromas of spices used in traditional dishes, intense colours characteristic of its souks and surrounding desert, and warm hospitality integral to Moroccan traditions. Fillion comments: ‘Egyptian Jasmine absolute imbues the fragrance with sensuality and links the spice elements. The Bergamot’s brilliance is extended while ensuring it blends well with the Neroli top note and the effect of the Jasmine petals. Together, these three components secure the top notes’ freshness.
