Italian niche perfume brand Eau d'Italie, whose line of fragrances is inspired by the famous luxury hotel Le Sirenuse, will launch a new opus titled Magnolia Romana. It follows Eau d'Italie, Bois d'Ombrie, Sienne l'Hiver, and Paestum Rose.
The new scent aims to capture the atmosphere of a place, "the romantic Villa Borghese. A place where the sun filters through rows of tall Magnolia trees that extend their branches across the sky, gently shading the centuries-old white marble statues. Where the air is thinly veiled with a warm softness created by the creamy-white Magnolia flowers that gently open their petals and release their generous fragrance.".......
"MAGNOLIA ROMANA is all that one remembers of a Magnolia. A scent initially fresh and transparent, then warmer and with something more: the full roundness of a pure white flower with the green freshness of basil, the cleanliness of a lotus blossom mixed with a summer ozone note, then the slight contrast of dark green crushed lemon leaves with just a hint of the evanescent bitterness of damp earth rounding out this rare olfactory creation."
Top notes: purple basil, lemon leaves, Neroli (distilled orange blossom), nutmeg, cypress.
Middle notes: Magnolia flower extract, Rose essence, traces of tuberose, lotus, ozone and water notes.
Base notes: Cedar, hay extract, white musk.
The perfume launches in May of 2008 and will be available in a 100 ml Eau de Toilette spray at Lafco.
