What it is: A fragrance that invites you to a sparkling expression of Portofino in full, sensuous bloom.
Fragrance story: Its floral seduction is inspired by the cascades of white flowers that spill from the branches of the white acacia, the beloved shade tree that dots the Mediterranean gardens and lines its tranquil avenues. The top note is a diaphanous cocktail of crisp citrus essences. A blend of Sicilian lemon, mandarin from Sorrento, Calabrese bergamot and juicy tangerine provide the tempo—a perfect picture of a citrus grove soaked with coastal oceanic rains. This citrus cocktail is furthered by bigarade, an inedible bitter orange leaf, for depth and body. Violet leaf absolute Orpur® wraps the accord with its green and vegetal nuances.
Style: Fresh, floral.
Notes: Sicilian lemon, bigarade leaf, white acacia accord, jasmine grandiflorum, violet leaf, acacia honey accord.
Mood: Vibrant, carefree, captivating.
