This fragance begins with a sparkling citrus green accord contrasted by the irreverent clove. The heart of the composition reaveals a fresh and feminine floral bouquet enhanced by a confortable drydown of white flowers, solar notes and the sensuality of a velvety musk.
The founder of Goya Perfumes, Douglas Collins said 'I learned that the success of a perfume depends much more on the fragrance than on its name or the package. The best known houses with big advertising and beautiful packaging cannot sustain sales of a new perfume for more than a year or two unless enough women like it and buy it regularly.”
He goes on to describe the skill needed to create a successful perfume by saying that it was “like a tune in the imagination… results are not achieved by long periods of scientific research – they are achieved by long periods of trial and error, or by occasional pieces of luck”.
One of Goya’s most famous perfumes, the Black Rose, took four and a half years to produce. Black Rose was a very sophisticated perfume. The perfume was formulated in the “organ” room (shown opposite), in which there was an array of massed ranks of ingredients known as essential oils from which new fragrance blends would be painstakingly developed.
