Giorgio Armani Rouge Malachite Eau De Parfum 100ml.
Rouge Malachite is an expression of Russia`s contrasting culture, with its mysterious, intoxicating power, and by its women, whose fair complexion lights up with red full of life and hope. In Russia, red protected crops and made them fertile; secure in this belief, peasants tied a sheaf with red twine for the heavens to grant them a rich harvest. At the end of the harvest, the last sheaf gathered will be decorated with a red ribbon and preserved in the same manner as religious icons. The colour of passion and power, this imaginary stone, Rouge Malachite, becomes a fragrance that pulses with energy. A singular, massive presence in the head notes, tuberose meets clary sage essence, creating an unexpected sharpness, enhanced by pink peppercorns. At the heart, tuberose, orange blossom, ylang ylang and sambac jasmine absolutes combine, diving into a voluptuous and deep vibration of Cashmeran wood and benzoin resinoid. Finally, the tuberose, perfectly structured, burns red like a radiant sunset, contrasting with the AmberXtreme* in a surprising dosage to give verticality and strength to this fragrance of fire and ice. *Ingredient exclusive to IFF.
Giorgio Armani Oud Royal. The Armani/Privé Collection was
created shortly after Giorgio Armani launched his eponymous Haute Couture line. While in ancient times spices were the bargaining counter around the Mediterranean shores, a number of rare and even more precious essences subsequently took their place. In the eastern confines of India, the strange alchemy that binds the heart of a tree with an intruding fungus gives birth to a hard wood with a deeply penetrating fragrance. Placed on the embers of an incense burner, it perfumes interiors and garments. When distilled, it delivers a golden and potently sweet-smelling essence which, as it matures, grows darker and thicker like a liqueur. This dark, dense oil exerts real fascination, and in the eyes of connoisseurs these rarest of qualities are more precious than gold. Sometimes worn on the skin, it distills intense woody effects and is adorned with animal-like reflections, shades of dark earth and tones of humus. When Giorgio Armani turned his attention to oud, he decided to work it the way he would a heavy brocade lined with gold and silver, leaving its weight, its noble intensity and majestic sedateness. Respectful of its personality, Giorgio Armani set about highlighting each facet of character in its composition: depth is amplified by an amber harmony, the reddish glow is fanned with spices, the dark earth reflections are smoked with a veil of myrrh and incense. Giorgio Armani has staged the splendid crowning of ...
Giorgio Armani Vert Malachite Eau De Parfum 100ml.
Devoted during Antiquity to the goddess Venus, malachite promotes luck and renewal, cultivating the paradox behind its delicate green shimmer. A colour linked to the earth, the meeting of mineral and botanical. Ethereal and powerful, Vert Malachite reveals a very feminine sensuality. A delicately balanced floral fragrance, it is both fresh and intoxicating, leaving a soft yet lingering trail. To interpret this stone, Fabrice Pellegrin (Firmenich) invented a radiant lily, which throbs at the heart of Vert Malachite. This soft, delicately spicy white flower is recreated using a process known as Nature Print* to convey its floral note in a larger-than-life olfactory illusion, astonishing in its perfection. Inspired by this lily, at once chaste and virtuous and symbol of procreation and carnal spirit, the perfumer sought to preserve its natural state. The noblest natural essences (bitter orange, pink pepper, Ylang Ylang, Sambac jasmine, vanilla and benzoin) create a luminous accord, contributing their signature and richness. A radiance poised between flowers and spices. Sharp bitter orange and petitgrain create a green opening note, bright and crisp, which explodes into an aqueous freshness. The white heart then exudes an accord of Sambac jasmine absolute and ylang ylang essence. Pink peppercorns add sparkle to this luminous note. At the base, the warm and sensual signature so characteristic of the lily is underscored by a ...
