Mexican botanical niche line Xinú has launched Monstera, a new unisex fragrance.
Monstera pays tribute to the scent of Monstera Deliciosa (“Delicious Monster”), a lush plant native to the tropical rainforests of Southern Mexico. Although Monstera produces fruit, the focus here is on the green, aromatic scent of the leaves, stem, and plant itself. [...] What’s astonishing about Monstera is just how juicy and lush the greenery smells here, like a leaf that’s been snapped open, allowing great big droplets of plant juice and sap to seep out.
Monstera was developed by perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux. Additional notes include sacred ear flower, datura and bull horn orchid.
Xinú Monstera is available now at Luckyscent, $220 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
