Dark and quixotic, Derring-Do is named for the old English term for daring and courage, perfectly encapsulated in this bold and defiant fragrance from the house of Ineke. A fougere fragrance of exquisite depth and character, Derring-Do opens with a burst of fresh, aquatic citrus alongside clean cyclamen. Moving into the heart notes, the scent takes on its true character; warmly spiced cardamom and black pepper lent shadowy mystery with the addition of fern and lush floral magnolia. A warm base of cedar, guaiac wood and musk completes the fragrance, leaving a beguiling final impression.
