Chopard have released a new men's fragrance called 1000 Miglia in reference to an institution of racing car sports, with an aesthetic twist as it gathers lovers of exquisite vintage cars. The cologne was composed by perfumers Olivier Polge and Bruno Jovanovic of IFF...
"The Mille Miglia – famous vintage car race turned into legend over the years – was born in 1927 under the impetus of two young Italian, Brescia-born counts. This prestigious, epic event featuring endurance racing cars sets off every year in May from Brescia to Rome, travelling more than 1,600 km through Italy’s most beautiful landscapes."
1000 Miglia is an oriental fougère offering a modernistic edge as it features an accord of hot asphalt. The composition mimics the dynamism of and sensations experienced during a high-speed race.
The fragrance opens with floral lavender notes, bergamot and Juniper berries. In the heart, there are herbaceous green grassy notes, violet petals, leather and a hot asphalt accord. The base is oriental with notes of dry amber, wood, and coffee beans.
Available in 50 ml and 80 ml eau de toilette.
