You can interpret the name as “Lover Dose” or “Love Overdose”. The Italian denim-wear brand says the fragrance is a “beautiful but deadly weapon of seduction”. It’s meant to evoke passion and feminine strength.

Developed by perfumers Honorine Blanc and Olivier Cresp, its has top notes of star anise and mandarin and bottom notes of vanilla, liquorice and dry woods. At the heart is liquorice and sambac jasmine.

We found it quite modern and fresh, neither too florally nor too musky, but the purple flacon may be more memorable to buyers.
