New World—Em­brac­ing na­tive cul­ture in a for­eign land may lead to un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences. For Caval­lier Bel­letrud, it re­sulted in the cre­ation of an un­ex­pected ori­en­tal ac­cord. A key in­gre­di­ent for Nou­veau Monde was dis­cov­ered in Gu­atemala. The in­spi­ra­tion? Mayan choco­late—a milk-free mix­ture of co­coa, spice, wa­ter, honey, cin­na­mon bark and herbs. Us­ing nat­u­ral co­coa resinoid from the Ivory Coast, a con­trast­ing Bangladeshi oud As­sam and spicy saf­fron note were added. On the skin, the leath­ery scent of oud min­gles with co­coa and in­cense. Sounds like the mak­ings of a se­duc­tive night fra­grance. We’re told this scent works won­ders on in­di­vid­u­als with higher body tem­per­a­tures.
