Formosa: The Fragrance

Formosa meaning “Beautiful Island,” was named centuries ago by Portuguese sailors looking for a special, unique place of beauty and harmony. Today more than ever, we seek that same escape to that special place in our hearts and imagination, if just for a moment.

Formosa is the new fragrance that embodies this dream, “the fragrance that takes you there.”

Known today as Taiwan, the island has inspired a fragrance that embodies all of its indigenous natural flowers, fruits, and spices.

The bottle design features a carved green faux jade ball closure, atop a bottle that is a sleek crystal clear slice of heavy glass. It com­bines the charm and authenticity of Formosa with the modern dynamic of Taiwan.

An experiential journey for the senses,
‘Formosa’ is the fragrance for today’s woman.
