Karl Lagerfeld has launched two new fragrances, Rome Divino Amore Pour Femme and Vienna Opera Pour Homme.
Rome and Vienna each have a place in the personal history of the fashion designer, inspiring him and influencing his work. From 1980 to 1983, Karl Lagerfeld studied drawing at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, nourishing his profound love of painting. But it was in Rome that he lived for part of the year for almost half a century, fascinated by the architecture and mythology of the ancient city.
The fashion designer has used his extraordinary creative heritage to create the perfumes, Rome – Divino Amore and Vienna – Opera, based on his memories.
Rome Divino Amore ~ “We wanted to create a fragrance that pays homage to the eternal city and its most evocative characteristics. A magnificent Mediterranean city with ochre façades warmed by the sun’s rays year round.” Emilie Coppermann and Pierre Guéros, Perfumers. The notes for the fruity floral amber include petitgrain bigarade, orange, neroli, orange blossom, jasmine, orchid, sandalwood, crystalline amber and musks. In Eau de Parfum.
Vienna Opera ~ “To recreate the very distinctive atmosphere of Karl’s beloved city, I wanted to work with a classic structure elevated by a hint of impertinence.” Alienor Massenet, Perfumer. The notes for the aromatic spicy fougère include grapefruit, basil, black pepper, lavender, sage, apple, sandalwood, cedar and vetiver. In Eau de Toilette.
Karl Lagerfeld Rome Divino Amore and Vienna Opera are available in 60 and 100 ml.
