The "Ill-advised Curiosity" scent is inspired by adventures, bravery, and optimistic idealism. Beginning with top notes of citrus, sea salt and ozone, the scent takes you deeper to plum and cardamom heart, wrapping up with noble amber and dark musk. By imitating his admired literary heroes, the Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, or just Don Quixote, announces himself a knight and finds new meaning in his life: aiding damsels in distress, battling giants, and righting wrongs...mostly in his own head. And very kindly.
It is a book about books, reading, writing, idealism vs. materialism, life...and death. A founding work of Western literature, it is often labeled "the first modern novel" and many authors consider it to be the best literary work ever written. We agree with them.
