Krakower Creates Yu

Mane perfumer Cecile Krakower has formulated Mane and Gary Farn Ltd's $5,000 fragrance called Yu. The scent features notes of champaca, genet, African freesia, Asian mandarin tree leaf, bergamot, tangerine, orange flower, ylang-ylang, rosewood oil, vetiver, sandalwood and vanilla. Several of these ingredients were created using a process Mane calls "jungle essence," which employs a portable, pressurized canister and solvent to yield plant extracts in virtually any jungle, forest or field visited.
