If we had to scent the happiest corners of our dreams it would smell just like Núvol De Llimona (“lemon cloud”). The inspiration behind the perfume is a dessert from Spain's El Celler de Can Roca (the #2 rated restaurant in the world according to Restaurant magazine).
Pastry chef Jordi Roca has spent years re-imagining world famous perfumes as desserts; it makes perfect sense when you consider the many natural notes that appeal to both taste and smell. Núvol De Llimona marks a reversal for the chef, recreating one of his own deserts (a delectable concoction of lemon sponge cake, creamy milk and sugar called Lemon Distillation) in perfume form and oh, how sweet it is! Bursting with sweet energy, Núvol De Llimona would make even the darkest, deepest patchouli and incense lover's mouth water.
The bright lemony-orange of bergamot (never waxy or “Pledge-y”) and the gentle sugared notes are uplifting, effervescent and gourmand, enriched by light touches of creamy milk and custard (you may be soulless if you're not drooling yet). But don't mistake Núvol De Llimona for a one-trick-pony foody scent; lily of the valley and musk are evident, imparting a beautifully layered, grown-up dessert of a perfume that will have fans trailing in your wake wherever you go. Undeniably delicious!
