Message in a bottle; sealed with love and spritz with a scent! A message that had been thrown to the waves, and to fate, could unite a bond of true love. No, it's not that Kevin Costner and Robin Wright-Penn movie vehicle, fittingly named ... Message in a Bottle(argh), but the story that Tocca tells to introduce their newest feminine fragrance, Margaux. Margaux by Tocca is a richer and more sophisticated proposition, inspired by the type of love that could last a lifetime, offered in an eau de parfum concentration in one of those emblematic flacons the brand is famous (and adored) for.

The Tocca company has slowly but surely managed to create a cult following, no less for their ultra feminine retro snuff bottle aesthetics as for their diverse and subtly alluring fragrances. From the sunny garden of the original floriental Touch (2006) to the subtle and skin-like patchouli musk of cultish Cleopatra, all through the gardenia/tuberose-laced Florence or the citrusy Colette and the sandalwood-smooth Stella. Not to mention all their newest fragrances inspired by places. Margaux proposes a different harmony, balancing the floral with the musky and the sweetly ambery: the top notes embrace you with velvety petals of green gardenia and ambery violet. The rich warmth of cashmere wood (Cashmeran) and warm musk, lightened by the sweetness of vanilla, envelope you in an intoxicating perfume that conjures the timelessness of that one true love. A feeling and fragrance you can keep for years, look back on with fondness and pass on to generations.

chickenboo,

they do not say, but I suppose the Hemingway woman would be more probable?
It's a nice name (and reminds me of the wine as well)

"Ambery Violet" sounds like an oxymoron to me.
