Manoa Review

Smelling more like an Oriental base than a full-fledged perfume, Manoa principally consists of a linear, vanilla and resin accord that’s dominated by the musty, woodsy tones of opoponax. More bergamot would take this powdery-sweet balsamic composition in the vague direction of Shalimar and Habit Rouge, but Manoa wants for any of the Guerlains’ mastery and mystery. 

Nose: Alienor Massenet
House: Memo
Release date: 2010
Notes (per Fragrantica): bergamot, lemon, ginger, iris, tonka, cypress, opoponax, vanilla, labdanum.
