Arsenico Extrait de Parfum
The stylistic inspiration for this creation is generated by the lethal beauty of Arsenico and of the magic ring in which Lucretia loved to keep it safe. Like a loyal friend who never leaves your side, or a terrible weapon always ready to be drawn in self-defence or to wage battle. Eager to conquer or to seduce in the subtle silence of the ethereal world, without making a single sound. If we think about it, its resemblance to the scent and the effects it has on those around the wearer is truly uncanny... The creation opens with a light citrusy bouquet heralded by the frothy notes of Calabrian bergamot orange, then slides reassuringly to ride the sweet softness of red fruits, such as red currant, the apple and the opulent pineapple. After this sinuous, subtle overture, we are bowled over by an explosion of fine woody notes, including several of the rare variety, such as Red Patchouly and Lebanese cedar wood. All balanced by ultra-delicate birch and the tonka bean, and combined in an embrace formed by jasmine and benzoin, in contrast to the sagebrush. This fragrance, with its incredible, persistent trail, lasts for a long time, because it founds its true strength in Grey Amber, blended with ancient Musk and precious Musks. The lethal weapon of seduction encompassed in a drop of scent.
