Mokaya is a sexy gourmand fragrance featuring hand-tinctured organic cocoa and vanilla beans. This growling fragrance opens with an intense chocolate aroma that simmers away to reveal a gorgeous ground of orange blossom, patchouli, ambrette seed musk and tobacco.
As well as eau de parfum, Mokaya is now available in pure parfum (fractionated coconut oil). This super-concentrated formula contains a high percentage ratio of essential oils and absolutes, so that Mokaya pure parfum warrants just a little dab.
The name, Mokaya, meaning ‘corn-people’, was given to a pre-Olmec culture that existed around 1900 BC in the Soconusco region of Mexico as well as in several parts of Guatemala. Archeologists believe that they were the first Mesoamerican people to cultivate cacao which was carried to Mexico from the Amazon (Wikipedia, 2016).
Imagining the ancient world and the birth place of chocolate, this natural gourmand fragrance is a study in dark, earthy scents that evoke the tropical richness of fertile soil, exotic flowers, fruit and wood-smoke. Mokaya’s main notes include: Jasmine Sambac, Cassie Absolute, Orange Blossom, Iris, hand-tinctured Vanilla and Cocoa, Patchouli and Tobacco. This is very much a unisex fragrance, retaining perfect balance between sweetness and raw earthiness.
