When you breathe Palapala for the first time, it’s easy to be immediately drawn to the citric energy that bergamot imbues in its flower.
The way it refreshes you seems almost soothing.
When the feminine heart of ylang-ylang finally emerges, it does so in a way that is less strong than rose but sweeter than iris.
This sweetness is light, elegant and not at all dusty. It resembles the sugar cubes one encounters when uncovering a china bowl at tea time.
But it evolves:
The cedarwood base adds its subtle masculine energy to the ambience to balance it out: its sweetness becomes more natural, and it now looks more like sugar canes that appear to us as we stroll through a forest where the rain has just stopped.
