While the first Pi fragrance (which launched in 1999) played on the theme of pushing back the limits of space, Pi Neo claims to go one step further in pushing back the limits of reality and moving into the virtual world.

Another update: here is the description of the scent from Women’s Wear Daily…
Concocted by Givaudan’s Antoine Lie, Pi Neo has top notes of Italian bergamot and mandarin orange, a heart of cedar and patchouli and a base of amber and vanilla. As well, each of the accords includes a patented, futuristic note. The top note carries Toscanol, an anise-like ingredient intended to give the fragrance energy. In the heart, Safraleine is intended to enrich the woody accord and to add hints of leather, spice and tobacco. The base of the fragrance has Cosmone, which lends a fluidity and hint of ambergris to the scent.
Givenchy Pi Neo will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
