According to lore, Cleopatra so adored Egyptian jasmine, gathered from the banks of the Nile at dusk when the flower’s scent is at its headiest, that she doused the sails of her ship with their essence on her journey to meet Mark Antony. As the fragrant breezes of this legendary flower snaked his way, legend has it, Mark Antony fell in love with the Egyptian queen, famous for her love of beautiful perfumes.
A soft and sensual fruity chypre, X Feminine Edition complements the soft eroticism of X Masculine Edition. Egyptian jasmine is refreshed and made momentarily sharp by fruit notes such as tart rhubarb and juicy peach and pineapple. Vanilla and labdanum soften and enrich those notes, and the perfume is made even more erotic with the X series’ signature note of Karo Karundi, a white flower essence from the West African shrub whose scent recalls the Acacia flower and is reputed to be an aphrodisiac.
The notes in X Feminine Edition Eau de Parfum blend beautifully not only with each other, but also with skin, creating a warm, sweet and luscious skin scent that, like X Masculine Edition, could be described as approachably erotic. Comforting and stunning.

Patricia Choux was already dreaming of creating perfume while still in her childhood, and with her admission to the renowned ISIPCA school for perfumers in Paris she achieved the crucial step towards fulfilling her dream. Her training in Paris was followed by years of practice with Symrise in Holzminden, Germany’s largest fragrance company, and further assignments as a perfumer in London, Paris and New York, where she has been living and working since 2005.
Her style is bold, crazy, chic. Her creations are determined by impressions gleaned during her travels: landscapes, colors, smells and cultures become the essences of her fragrances, combining into fresh, exciting compositions. She experiments as much with the exotic as with the endless facets of the scent of jasmine, her favorite blossom.
