The Pomelo may look like a jumbo-sized grapefruit, but don't mistake the two. They're actually distant cousins that share very little in common. Beneath the pomelo's bitter, bright green peel lies a pink fruit with the sweetness of an orange. Though pomelos have been loved in Southeast Asia for ages, they've only recently gained popularity in western groceries. Pomelo Paradis is Atelier Cologne's 7th cologne absolue in their Collection Originale, and is an homage to this unsung citrus. With one of the most mouthwatering openings we've ever smelled, Pomelo Paradis serves up both the crisp edginess of the peel with all the sweetness of its fruit; like the moment of pulling apart the juicy segments, with the peel just removed, not yet discarded.
Pomelo Paradis sustains its crisp, sweet freshness by surrounding Floridian pink pomelo with heart notes of the highest quality - tangy black currant bud, sweet Calabrian mandarin, Moroccan orange blossom, Bulgarian rose and Chinese mint. Its base of Haitian Vetiver, Tuscan Iris and amber leave you with an elegant, velvety dry down. If you're a fan of fresh, bright and happy citrus, you will love Pomelo Paradis.
Pomelo Paradis Notes: Pink grapefruit, Calabrian mandarin, black currant, orange blossom, Bulgarian rose, mint, amber, vetiver and iris.
