Sombres Dessins by Jovoy Perfume. Launched in 2015, Sombres Dessins is a unisex woody fragrance that also features balsamic, floral, spicy and
powdery accords. Bergamot lends its characteristically crisp, sweet and spicy essence to the top notes, while pink pepper brings in a mildly rosy undertone. This combination effortlessly sets the stage for the middle notes featuring intensely fragrant rose with the apricot-like scent of osmanthus, woody patchouli and bright, earthy saffron. The perfume
closes with base notes of sandalwood, labdanum, rum and incense, weaving a warm and luxurious effect that lasts with the wearer.
