A bracing cologne of coastal Italian citrus. Rinds of chinotto, blood orange, cold-pressed lemon and green mandarin are embedded in the velveteen textures of ambrette seed & clean musk. Androgynous and light bodied, this citrus-musk scent simultaneously relaxes and rejuvenates, a favorite aperitif translated into fragrance. While it’s difficult to differentiate between every individual, tart fruit, the multiplicity of bright flavors in this composition makes for a truly defined rendering of late afternoon light- bouncing off marble, glinting in the flow of a fountain and caressing the inhabitants of a small palazzo.
Cold-pressed, lemon yields up more of its fruity sweetness; the characteristic burn of citric solar power is more easily found in the bitter exterior and sanguine flesh of blood orange; chinotto`s profile is darker and deeper than any citric counterpart herein, lending a honeyed, medicinal tinge to this composition; green mandarin walks a tightrope between searing acidity and candied floral depth. When we encounter the spicy, sparkling brilliancy of violet leaf accompanied by a grey curl of incense, it is as if we have momentarily replaced our ideal digestif with a languorous drag of a cigarette. Copaiba balm is a hint of the careworn, polished interior of the restaurant`s interior, ambrette representing the soft, clean textures of refreshed bodies leaning against the dark bar. Oakmoss strains the high-impact fruits that populate the beginning of this scent, creating the gauzy, golden light that drenches this end-of-day scene.
Whether you`re beginning your evening or starting your day, Italian citrus will lower your blood pressure and raise your spirits, no alcohol consumption required.
