HOW IT WEARS
Anna opens with a really fresh and uplifting Marine note. This is the most prominent initlaly and feels like a gentle sea breeze, then we gradually get the sweet Rose and Ylang Ylang creating a little more depth to the fragrance. Such a wonderful pairing - Rose and Marine, we love the airiness, they feel weightless on the skin and super clean.
Anna wears like the most perfect white linen shirt, it has the carefree elegance of a European woman. Of course Anna takes us to the canals of Amsterdam - she is incredibly chic, riding her bicycle through the city, along the canals, the fresh scent of the water is flowing through her long hair as she rides. She has her bicycle basket filled with wonderful fresh roses on a picturesque spring morning. We have the perfect blend of Rose, Marine notes and clean, fresh air in this fragrance.
