The scent of North American forest. The Mississippi river finds its main source in the legendary Lake Itasca in the heart of Minnesota. Itasca is reminiscent of the forests covering the American landscape once inhabited by the Algonquin tribes and pioneers exploring the depths of the new continent.
Core notes of Minnesotan red pine mingle with a base of amber, incense, vetiver Java and Texas cedar woods. After fresh top notes of juniper berries, a spicy harmony then unfolds where dominant woody notes are accented with clove and nutmeg.
A spiced vetiver, Itasca opens with citrus fruits refreshed by juniper berries, followed by a harmonious combination of oriental woods, vetiver, and red Minnesotan pine. This scent evokes the forests that surround Lake Itasca, the source of the great Mississippi river, and a legendary place guarded by Algonquin Indians.
UPDATE: We’re thrilled to welcome back this long beloved spicy-fresh classic, now in a stronger Eau de Parfum concentration. While the subtle, airy woods and vetiver of the EDT are very much the same as they’ve always been, the new concentration means the freshness lingers for hours longer- albeit seductively close to the skin.
