Azzaro has updated their first fragrance release, 1975's Azzaro Couture for women, and will relaunch it this coming October. Vanessa Seward, Azzaro's artistic director, noted that “Couture was one of Loris Azzaro’s favourite fragrances and I really wanted to work on it as a homage to him".
The new juice was developed by perfumer Aurélien Guichard, and is described as a "lighter, more luminescent and fresh floral, which nonetheless retained the spirit of the original". The notes include bergamot, galbanum, mimosa, rose de mai, jasmine, iris, ambrette seed and patchouli.
The packaging features a hand-blown glass bottle encased in a white plastic shell with Swarovski crystals embedded in the cap. The fragrance will be fronted by heiress and Unicef Ambassador Jemima Khan, who will donate her payment to Unicef.
Azzaro Couture will be available in refillable 75 ml Eau de Parfum, priced at €170 for a luxury coffret or €140 for a "regular" bottle. It will be exclusive to Neiman Marcus in the US. (quotes via cosmeticsinternational, additional information via moodiereport)
