From Jusbox Perfumes:

“The nights vibrate with a warm, intimate rhythm in the legendary clubs of Beco das Garrafas where a new musical revolution takes shape and animates every alley in Copacabana. It is the birth of the Bossa Nova. Not just new harmonies but an attitude, a way of being, in which melancholy is beauty and life.

An iconic melody that begins with sparkling, sunny notes of primofiore lemon oil that combine with the tropical accents of pineapple and mango accord. The olfactive sound of peony in the heart reveals its romantic soul in an unexpected and intense combination with sandalwood and rum absolute. A deep, enveloping song of vanilla rises in the background with an elegant jazz of labdanum, operanide and ambroxan. An eclectic composition by master perfumer Julien Rasquinet that pays tribute to the joy of life and the freedom to be oneself.

Carioca Heart is a tribute to the rhythmic and minimalist melodies of Bossa Nova, an intimate and powerful ode that vibrates in the grace of a new style where the beauty of desire and the romanticism of nostalgia are combined.

The sun overlooks the Copacabana sea and the Carioca night energy sees the dawn. In the warm atmospheres of the clubs of Beco das Garrafas a new rhythm sounds, It is the summer of 1958 when the Odeon label records on 78 rpm vinyl " Chega de Saudade " in which "saudade" becomes a messenger of love and marks the incipit of Bossa Nova. The exuberance of samba combines with the elegant rhythm of North American jazz until it becomes the iconography of a lifestyle in which joy and energy blend with nostalgia and romance. "Garota de Ipanema" consecrates Bossa Nova to be Musical genre and identity of a people.

The colours, the harmonies, the gestures of an iconic dance. The joy, the smile of a people. The music of the soul.

The colour chosen for Carioca Heart is coral, a shade exuding energy and fantasy. It is the perfect synthesis of the joy of life and the ephemeral beauty of nostalgia.

Primofiore lemon oil, obtained by cold extraction of the fruit's peel, expresses a sparkling citrusy madness, whilst its olfactory joy combines in perfect symbiosis with the Mango accord created by the talented master perfumer Julien Rasquinet. The intense, romantic heart of peony adds a foreboding accent that mesmerizes the heart of rum absolute and seduces the mystery of the woody notes of sandalwood. The vanilla extract CO2 LMR envelops with its gourmand notes and meets in a sensual olfactory dance the Jazz synthesis of the soft musky note of ambroxan and the amber accents of operanide.

"The charm of Copacabana, the narrow streets, happiness seasoned with a pinch of nostalgia… a beautiful dream already."  V-Monkeys Milan 2020”
