Italian niche brand Masque Milano will launch L'Attesa, a new unisex fragrance.
A delightful tussle between bounding anticipation and an attempt at refined, laissez-faire patience. L’Atessa translates the moment before reunion, when one lover waits for the other with only champagne and flowers for company...Beer extract evokes the yeasty exhale of champagne uncorking–the waiting lover has grown too thirsty–and nervous. Angelica’s spicy effervescence simulates the perfect, crisp relief of a delicate mousse. Three varieties of iris engineer a multifaceted masterpiece: florid yet taut, rich and slightly oily (yet never oleaginous), the iris in the heart of L’Atessa is eminently modish and delightfully mysterious. Carrot seed enhances this powder-free iris, maintaining its silken (rather than fluffy) texture. Refreshing sandalwood, lush Ylang Ylang and rich tuberose invisibly form a profound yet subtle contrasting perspective, which stabilizes and reinvigorates the floral core of this scent....
Additional notes for the green floral fragrance include bergamot, neroli, oakmoss and leather.
Masque Milano L'Attesa is available for pre-order at Twisted Lily, in 35 ml Eau de Parfum, $165.
