Hot and cold, soft and spicy, this perfume, a study in contrasts, embodies absolute freedom of mind. Wildly unexpected.
Absinthe, the infamous Green Fairy, bringer of madness, desire and wanton dreams. Composed with steely calm and controlled imagination by Olivia Giacobetti, Fou D’Absinthe is a masterpiece of cutting-edge fragrance design. From the ice-cold grip of the absinthe and angelica top notes, through warming spices down to the heady intoxication of forest balsams, pine needles and patchouli, the essence of walks in the Pyrenean forests. Fou d’Absinthe smells like madness and taboo busting dreams. The key to its uniqueness is the constant contrast of hot versus cold that plays out across the skin. The harmonies blaze and chill, crackle and burn. Close your eyes and let yourself be carried away by this most extraordinary of fragrances.

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.
