Ever since designer Caitlin Mociun opened her eponymous Williamsburg store, she’s been a big supporter of MCMC. From day one you could find our whole range of perfume oils, candles and men’s offerings on display next to her (really incredible) fine jewelry.
Last summer we got to talking, and as it turns out, for years everyone has commented on her scent. Sadly, her scent was a hippie musk that was no longer in production. Caitlin had bought one last big bottle of the stuff and was preciously and slowly using it (though she admits she kind of bathed in it). It was time to make her a new fragrance.
Inspired by her recent trip to the southern Italian island of Sicily, we drew inspiration from the bright and bitter scent of Italian neroli flowers coupled with an essential oil of the stems of the same tree, called petitgrain. We added a warm, rich, and long-lasting amber and clean white musk to finish it off. The 9ml perfume oil comes packaged in Mociun’s signature jewelry box.
Available at the MOCIUN store, 224 Wythe Avenue in Brooklyn, NY and online at www.mcmcfragrances.com.
