A canary yellow, 24 carat diamond of extraordinary clarity was discovered in Baroda, India and has since travelled from Mughal dynasties to Hollywood.
The Moon of Baroda’s rich history took it through the hands of Empress Marie Theresa of Austria to Marilyn Monroe, worn for her famous performance of “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” in the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Hypnotic Lebanese cedar is one of the most beautiful and ancient ingredients in perfumery. The spicy, resinous oil is identical in hue to the gemstone with a piquant, cognac-laced intensity that invigorates the emotions and warms the senses. A glowing amber heart flows over woody, sweet sandalwood from Mysore – the finest of its kind on earth – intense and spiritual in mood. Finally, a double dose of cedar brings the fanciful landscape to a close. Luminous.
