Inspired by Brazil, this fragrance is full of rhythm and sensuality. Fresh, joyful and vibrant.
The fruit of a collaboration between two perfumers, Karine Vinchon in Grasse and Elisabeth Maier in São Paulo, Batucada is a stunning celebration of Brazil. Vibrant from the outset, a bolt of energy infects us with the beat of frenetic samba rhythms. A burst of lime, cachaça and fresh mint then appears, intoxicating our senses, much like Brazil’s signature cocktail, the Caïpirinha. Exotic scents come into their own as the middle notes of the fragrance reveal Tiaré and ylang ylang flowers, recalling the heady perfume of sun cream. A sea salt note, so reminiscent of holidays, purifies the senses with its delicate fragrance, as if we were on the famous Ipanema beach. Finally, a skin accord comes through to the fore, just like the seductive scent of the samba dancers’ skin, emanating a powerful and addictive sensuality.

Created in 1972, this floral-chypre scent is from the fragrance house of Jean Patou, which first discovered Osmanthus, a shrub originally from the Himalayas, China and Japan that only blossoms a few hours in spring, making it impossible to predict the annual production of the scent. It's called 1000 as it literally took 1000 attempts to find the perfect scent.
Top Note: Osmanthus Absolute of China, Violettes Leaves Absolute of France, Lily of the Valley Accord
Heart Note: Damascena Rose Oil, Rose Absolute of Grasse, Jasmine Absolute of Grasse
Base Note: Indonesian Patchouli Oil, Indian Sandalwood Oil

18 La Lune is a hypnotizing, boundary-shattering blend with a top of apple, bergamot, and lily; a heart of rose and tuberose; and a base of orris, leather, sandalwood, and musk.
The impression channels a myserious, delicate character that is neither male, nor female, nor unisex, moving with dynamism to the free, edgy style that marks the D&G fashion empire.
