Niche perfumery Linari have announced the introduction of a new fragrance called Acqua Santa (Holy Water).
The composition is signed by perfumer Maurice Roucel, the author of Hermès 24, Rochas Tocade, Guerlain L'Instant, Guerlain Insolence, Lolita Lempicka L, Dunhill Fresh, Guess, Marc Jacobs Splash Orange and many more...
Roucel likes to emphasize the point that perfumery cannot be taught, based on his experience. Linari are thus presenting him as "self-taught master perfumer Maurice Roucel."
The Eau de Parfum is described as offering the texture of "a crystal-clear holy water," It further features blithe fruity notes of Sicilian bergamot and cassis followed by warm and spicy notes of coriander, Javanese patchouli, green leaves. The composition rests on an enveloping floral bouquet of finest rose petals, wild jasmine, ylang-ylang, cyclamen, lily of the valley.
The flacon is designed by Rainer Diersche and decorated with 21-carat platinum plating.
