It is designed for women who are "tempting, seductive, risk-taking and totally in control." Illicit embodies the daring spirit of a woman who is hypnotic, attractive and living life to the fullest.
The fragrance is announced as a modern floral, created by the perfumer Anne Flipo. It starts with frizzy notes leading to the floral heart and the warm, honey-amber base. Ginger and bitter orange open the composition. The heart consists of rose and jasmine sambac, laid on the base of honey-amber accord and sandalwood.
