“This perfume represents my idea of luxury: pursuing the ultimate in comfort with sophistication, enjoying the pleasures of life, in intimacy, freedom and carefree. Libertine Neroli inaugurates a line of perfumes dedicated to specific raw materials: they are not simple fragrances, but complex architectures that revolve around a main ingredient.
Neroli is the scent of abundance, of abandonment to pleasures, and its fresh and cheerful appearance brings to mind the mythical places of Italian summer worldliness, immortalized by films such as F. Fellini’s Dolce Vita, W. Wyler’s Roman Holiday, The Talented Mr. Ripley by A.Minghella.
Neroli, like any white flower, is tenacious, strong and seductive, and this character is accentuated by some animalic notes to create a chord that is not secondary and stands out wherever you put it.
This Neroli accord is nestled in a Chypré structure, with oak moss – green, woody, damp and earthy – and sweet, honeyed labdanum. This is counterbalanced by another of my favorite notes, leather, which adds an animalic touch, creating a refined and elegant contrast with great character.”
