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.
The essence of a love full of contrasts, a fragrance that is all about passionate temptations. The heart of the rose introduces a sensual atmosphere where Sambac plays with Myrrh, Magnolia, Lebanese Cedarwood and Bourbon Vanilla.
To be honest captures the experience of stumbling upon an ancient church while walking through the woods. The green and woody fragrance follows you inside. Candles burn silently, their lights still flickering. A waft of incense lingers high above the altar as if the congregation has just vanished. There are notes of myrrh, black pepper, cedar wood, patchouli, vetiver and amber.
Soft, creamy, addictive. This vanilla’s explosion takes you back to your childhood’s first sugar rush. You won’t get enough of it. It will taste like a delicious candy on your skin. With Vanilla Infusion, Persian Almond, White Fig and base notes of Madagascar Vanilla and Siam Benzoin.
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.
Wanted is reminiscent of an oriental garden as the mist rolls in. Slightly dishevelled and overgrown, moss clings to stone statues obscured by twisting trees and shrubs. Bursts of exotic scents are elevated by a delicate cloud of steam. There are notes of clove, juniper, nutmeg, leather with a little musk accord in the air.
A seductive scent that seduces you and everyone around you. Like a white lie it entices you yet holds a promise of a deeper truth. With a fresh and tempting top of Lemon, Raspberry and Lychee, it drags you in to a heart of Jasmine, Tuberose and Heliotrope. The deep and sensual notes of Patchouli, Orcanox, and Vanilla in the base makes the composition truly unique and impossible to forget.
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.
The sense of pained profound love. Contrasting feelings like pain and pleasure, faith and fear. Sweetness and bitterness, warmth and danger, softness and extreme loneliness. A love similar to a religious experience full of devotion and suffering. Love as an addiction. Sometimes an impossible love, maybe an unrequited love.
This troubled woman in love is very attractive as she displays all her doubts and vulnerability; she wears it on her skin. In her fragility lies devotion and enormous strength. We wish to be him, but we may not wish to be her, her desire however is irresistible.
