The top notes of this flirtatious fragrance are Baies Rose, Italian Mandarin, Lavender, Italian Bergamot, with hints of Carrot Seed and Cumin; coalescing into a succulent bouquet of Orange Blossoms, Lilac, Jasmine, amidst an enriched blend of Tonka Bean and Vanilla Panifolia. At the base, are exotic notes of Ambergris, Incense and Tonkin Musk, resulting in a sensation of sensually moist skin.
It’s the smell of a walk through Old Havana in the evening, from the Hotel Sevilla to the Caseon del Tango for a dance lesson with Ketty and Felix. Wafts of coffee and tobacco, sweet, sugary desserts cooked with baskets of oranges and mangoes. The scent of peaches beginning to turn overripe, and citrus peel going squishy in the gutter. From a dark doorway a handsome man in white whispers, “Do you want a Cuban boyfriend?” and I speed up a little, squeaking “No! Thankyou very much for asking all the same!” And then the old Cubanos at the tango club greet us with smiles, songs, rum and kisses.
Acqua di Stresa Verbena Absoluta is a unisex fragrance, flowery and citrusy, extremely fresh and elegant, with musky and woody base notes. Especially created for spring and summer, Verbena Absoluta recalls green meadows, evening breezes, rustles between the leaves. A green composition where flowers, citrusy fruits and woody oils weave a sophisticated olfactory tune.
The idea for this composition was to create a perfume with two essential characteristics: modern and minimalistic luxury.
The inception of this alluring fragrance begins with notes of Pamplemousse and hints of crushed Mint, creating a unique freshness; at the heart are notes of Heliotrope, Orris and Violet Leaf creating a delicate balance; evolving into a seductive trail of meticulously chosen precious woods, Iso E super and notes of White Musk, during the “dry out,” a chic composition, perfect for everyday use.
