The Fragrance: NARCISO by Narciso Rodriguez
Friday, October 24, 2014 • 10 comments
Narciso Rodriguez draws his inspiration from women, for women. His creations are designed to celebrate their beauty and sensuality, to set off their body. He has a unique, timeless style that combines the rules of American ready-to-wear fashion, the traditions of European Haute-Couture and the sensuality of his Latin heritage. His direct style goes straight to the core, his designs are practical and glamorous, yet realistic. Other than the dress, what could be more natural than to clothe a woman with a fragrance, a fragrant aura, and the tangible and moving expression of feminine gracefulness? For this reason, he has chosen "NARCISO" to be the name of his latest fragrance, which he dedicates to all women, and their ability to inspire him.
"A sophisticated statement, and an irresistible invitation. Rose and gardenia lend a feminine grace to vetiver and black and white cedars. At the core, notes of musc offer undeniable warmth and sensuality. Evoking mystery, attraction, and exquisite desire, NARCISO embodies the scent of seduction."
NARCISO opens with a strong white gardenia note with the tiniest sweetness of rose making for an exotic, clean, yet intoxicating floral bouquet, followed by a creamy, clean, and warm musk emerging and some spiciness, a peppery quality like the one you’ll notice in large lilies, when you hold them up to your nose really close. This hint of spiciness is building the bridge to the onset of the base of dry cedarwood and a little later, some slightly dark and inky vetiver.
