Ruth Mastenbroek



The Ruth Mastenbroek Fragrance: "I have designed my fragrance to evolve from top notes of bergamot, mandarin, pink peppercorn, blackcurrant, and pineapple, through to the heart notes of rose, lily, and jasmine, finally to the rich base notes of exotic woods: patchouli and sandalwood, with oakmoss and musk. My choice of materials was critical: I chose these particular ingredients because I love how they respond to each other and develop on the skin. The accord of bergamot, rose, patchouli and oakmoss forms an accord known in perfumery as ‘chypre’, which is French for oakmoss; I absolutely love this accord! The result is refreshing and sparkling at first, then becomes more warm and floral, drying down into a scent that is intriguing and sensual.'
