When the original Salvador Dali Le Parfum launched in 1983, six years before the death of the Surrealist icon and painter, the composition immediately struck you with its unique balance, softness and warmth, but especially its unique softness. It was one of the best perfumes that launched that year.
Composed by perfumer Alberto Morillas of Firmenich, the master has been invited to offfer a new, modern adaptation of the classic destined to today's young women. From being a floral chypre, it is now turned into a fresh musky floral baptized Salvador Dali Eau de Toilette while preserving core, authentic elements that made it reflect the tastes of Dali and Gala...
Morillas reportedly kept the heart of the perfume resting on the notes of rose and jasmine while imparting new fruity and sparkling accents to the blend. Powdery musks have been also added.
The result is said to be refined, luminous, modern, and young. The crystalline transparency of the flacon and the jus reflects this new orientation leaving aside all references to the golden, ambery warmth of the original which can still be had in Parfum de Toilette concentration.
The Eau de Toilette opens on head notes of tangerine, bergamot and orange blossom. The rose and jasmine in the heart, which pay homage to the mythical couple formed by Gala and Salvador Dali remain, while a delicate and modern accord of magnolia petals has been grafted upon it. The base notes are powdery thanks to the cocktail of musks, vanillic, and both subtly and intensely woody.
The new scent launches on October 15, 2011.
Prices: 34€, 51€, 70€.
