In his book "The Secret Life of Salvador Dalí," Dalí refers to Gala with these words: "She was destined to be my Gradiva, the one who goes forward, my victory, my wife." Ma Victoire symbolizes triumphant love; Gala frees him, makes him overcome his madness and turns him into a creative genius.
Ma Victoire, is a dual fragrance, like their relationship, a delicate balance between obsessive addiction and reassuring sweetness. The burst of bergamot is softened by the orange, the narcotic tuberose is cocooned by the white musks, clove spices the armful of white flowers. As a finishing touch, powdered vanilla comes and coats the woody and leathery notes.
