ARSENICO 3.4oz Extrait de Parfum
In the unique ratings of the poisons, this all-powerful potion certainly and undoubtedly sweeps the board clean. Indeed, it is seen as one of the most notorious lethal spirits ever known to man: its traces can easily be concealed and it is a joy to behold, thanks to its deep, rich colour reflected in the etymology of its name, which means "ornament" in ancient Persian.
The stylistic inspiration for this creation is generated by the lethal beauty of Arsenico and of the magic ring in which Lucretia loved to keep it safe. Like a loyal friend who never leaves your side, or a terrible weapon always ready to be drawn in self-defence or to wage battle. Eager to conquer or to seduce in the subtle silence of the ethereal world, without making a single sound.
The creation opens with a light citrusy bouquet heralded by the frothy notes of Calabrian bergamot orange, then slides reassuringly to ride the sweet softness of red currant, the apple and the opulent pineapple. After this sinuous, subtle overture, we are bowled over by an explosion of fine woody notes, including several of the rare variety, such as Red Patchouli and Lebanese cedar wood. All balanced by ultra-delicate birch and the tonka bean, and combined in an embrace formed by jasmine and benzoin, in contrast to the sagebrush. This fragrance, with its incredible, persistent trail finds its true strength in Grey Amber, blended with ancient Musk and precious Musks. The lethal weapon of seduction encompassed in a drop of scent.
