And coming in September to Barneys, a new fragrance from i Profumi di Firenze, Zenzero:
i Profumi di Firenze’s smash-hit vanilla orchid perfume, Vaniglia del Madagascar, is warmed up with white ginger to create the collection's newest scent, Zenzero, a seductively addictive fragrance that is as elegant as it is earthy. Zenzero translates to ginger in Italian and was a favorite spice ingredient of the Medici family for their 16th century perfume recipes. Delectably rich and deep, Zenzero is as luxurious as the finest cashmere wrap and captures the sensual glamour of a beautiful fall evening soiree.
