Serene and mysterious as Mona Lisa's smile, this white floral musk opens gently with neroli and Italian bergamot. Heart notes include a lush bouquet of jasmine, passion flower, lily of the valley and a Damascus rose. The drydown is delicate and woody, with whispers of vetiver and vanilla orchid. The perfume exudes a contemplative yet timeless innocence that is clean, deep, and lyrically romantic--like the "dolce amaro" (bittersweet) reminiscence of first love.
Additional notes include white musk. i Profumi di Firenze Dolce Amaro is available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
Coming later this month, Brezza di Mare, which will be exclusive to Barneys:
This dazzling new fragrance uncannily captures the salty airy freshness of a pristine sea breeze. The blend was inspired by i Profumi di Firenze master perfumer Alessandro Morsiani’s passion for the sea. He spent a year meticulously crafting just the right blend that would conjure the serene magnificence of sailing on the Mediterranean. The scent opens with top notes of Bergamot and sea salt from the Calabrian coast. Freshly picked lemons and limes from the seaside cliffs of Sicily are touched with a whisper of watermelon to create this perfectly effortless scent for spring and summer.
Update: Brezza di Mare is also in 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
