Delicious, captivating, mouth-watering... A cult classic for true vanilla addicts!
According to a beautiful myth in Totonac mythology, the tropical vanilla orchid was born from the tale of star-crossed lovers. When Princess Xanat, forbidden by her father to marry a mortal man, fled to the forest with her lover, the two were not left alone for long. Captured and beheaded, where their blood touched the ground, the vine of the tropical orchid grew.
The succulent aroma of the natural essence from the black vanilla pod is the universal code for love. This is at the heart of Tihota! A more sophisticated, up-scale take on LÓccitane’s Vanille or Saint Barth’s Vanille West Indies, Tihota is nothing like so many other gourmand perfumes in the market; it beguiles as much as it comforts. It is the vanilla to end all vanillas, as if it were originally conceived as the be-all and end-all of a perfumer’s quest to vanilla dominion.
Imagine black vanilla pods opened fresh with a knife to render their rich, darkish, sweet aroma, with shades of loquat and boozy rum, to a crème brûlée. Imagine your skin smelling of the alluring mélange of vanilla sugar & thick clotted cream under the hot Polynesia sun. Imagine, finally, a gourmandise so cosy and so soft, that, when the pliable, long lasting musk arises from the depths under the fluffy marshmallow-like core, you’re at last left with golden skin that sighs with pure desire. A tale not of star-crossed lovers, but of lovers, full stop.
