Product Description:

Flowers, sunshine, and 'La dolce vita' are the ingredients of Caprissimo, a fragrance created for living through the senses, embodying the spirit and energy that surround Capri.

Petit grain is a subtle yet bright initial note, that flows easily into the tart richness of Amalfi lemon. Lilac is a definitive presence at the outset of this fragrance, its inimitable, infinite blossoms unfurling a slightly powdery freshness.

The heart of Caprissimo grows sweeter as honeysuckle’s sweetness inspires wild images of a covert afternoon delight enjoyed under the fruit-laden boughs of a private orchard. Osmanthus illustrates the late afternoon golden sunshine, while jasmine recreates sweetly sweaty, slightly indolic aftermath. Frangipani is both enlivening and lush, a heady freshness that seems to float down from the heavens.

Green leaves refresh our lusty palates and herald the more avory pleasures, yet to come. White musk is as effortlessly bewitching as the clouds overhead, sparse, creamy structures that resemble strands of cotton strewn across the vibrant blue. Cedarwood and patchouli are mildly sobering, a dry sweetness that effects the rousing cool of an evening breeze.

Sandalwood seems to seethe, pulsing with an almost neon green, dusty energy that flits and floats across our skin, a savory, tart tickle. Ambergris is rich, a rosin like substance that is strewn across the base of Caprissimo and which both reflects and contains all of the preceding, amorous energy. Myrrh weaves it’s mythic stamp up and over the entirety of the preceding action, dutifully preserving each note at its most vibrant.

Caprissimo is beautiful, hypnotic, as ephemeral and capricious as a heart filled with passion.
