Following up from the original Anna Sui Romantica fragrance
, Anna wanted to be transported to an island of relaxation and warmth while still being embraced by sweet romance. Thus, Romantica Exotica
was born. It’s Anna’s Island Dream
, all in a bottle. Her dream of romance, freedom and happiness.
Close your eyes and be transported to a tropical paradise tightly embraced by the warm scent of exotic flowers, the freshness and clarity of the lagoon, the pristine white sandy beach and the glistening sun shining through the luscious palm trees. Romantica Exotica simply freshens and awakes you, while greeting you with a sense of happiness and ecstasy.
Housed in a gradient turquoise green flacon with gold floral details, Romantica Exotica is a perfect resemblance of olden days’ luxury. Don’t you feel that the turquoise reminds you of the ocean? The fresh, crisp smell of the sea..~
Take the first whiff and you’ll be enthralled by the opening notes of citrus fruits, lemon and grapefruit, combined with the sweetness of blackcurrant. Before you know it, this uniquely feminine fragrance transcends into a spread of beautiful, lush and exotic white flowers – jasmine, neroli and lotus. The gorgeous jasmine sambac is used as a key note to add a sparkling dewiness to the blend and gives it that tropical touch.
At the base, you’ll recognise sandalwood immedately for its woody accents, made full with exotic hinoki wood, gardenia and cottonwood. The overall blend is like having a summer beach fling – refreshing, romantic, passionate but short-lived. After about 4 hours or so, there seemed to be only a subtle sandalwood fragrance lurking. I quite like that faint smell. Non-overpowering and gives me a sense of tranquility.
“When creating the fragrance it was a natural; the lush fruits and exotic flowers of the island, it was like it created itself. A beautiful fruity floral fragrance with a hint of the rolling waves from the ocean. A sun kissed souvenir that I brought home for my friends. Each time I smell Romantica Exotica it transports me back to my family visit to Tahiti.” – Anna Sui
