The outdoor fashion house’s first foray into the world of fragrances is a floral, woody and musky. It begins with a lively Italian green mandarin note with a green alpine accord. It’s a fresh and uplifting first impression. The feminine heart of rare jasmine absolute with fruity undertones soon emerges balanced by the sandalwood and musk.
Outside of the beauty of the fragrance, Moncler Pour Femme has a unique LED screen bottle. An interactive and programmable LED screen is incorporated into the flacon that connects with your smartphone for a truly personalized experience. The bottle comes with a charging cable and a user manual in 42 languages. It is even refillable!
