inter in Shanghai can be a real mystery: one day we fall into pollution, there is rain on the next one, and the third day brings sunshine and singing birds. Truly, no one knows…
If there is one thing you can trust to help you get through the day, it’s your favorite aroma. That’s where DOUCÉA and their special scent “A Winter in Shanghai” comes in.
From Shanghai, with love
A balanced blend of lavender, green tea, and vanilla is created by a French perfume master exclusively for DOUCÉA and aims to brighten up the city’s winter landscape. Not for no reason Shanghai is crowned Paris of the East!
The scent is tailored for young ladies and teenagers. Sweet tones of vanilla are made fresh with hints of green tea and soothing lavender.
Lavender is known to help with focus and keeping the stress down, green tea keeps the energy high, and vanilla adds that extra comfort where it is due.
