Cara Mia Perfume by Etienne Aigner, Cara Mia is an oriental floral that is not overly sweet or feminine. It strikes the perfect balance of sensual softness and spicy tang.
It opens with top notes of mandarin and bergamot with just a hint of blank pepper and coriander. The heart is more floral with middle notes of peach, iris, and jasmine. At the bottom of the scent sit the base notes of olibanum, labdanum, patchouli, and cashmere-musk. This provides a dry down with true warmth and distinction. The sillage and longevity of this perfume are both excellent. It is truly long lasting and will take you through the day with ease.
