The word 'Posì' means potion and/or poison in ancient Greek. The ancients used the word not only for a magic potion but also to describe the strength of the potion itself, because Posi was the most potent of all poisons, which could fell a man with no hope of escape. Persuasive and beautiful, just like its bottle, this new creation of the V Canto line is inspired by the seduction and alchemy of Lucretia Borgia.
The bottle is covered by hand in 24 karat gold leaf, adding further to the precious uniqueness of this creation. Each bottle is in fact unique and irreproducible and a true masterpiece of the Italian decorative art, which dates back to the Renaissance. In this iconic creation of the Lucrethia collection, art is embodied in the bottle while poison transforms into a fragrance expressing wonder and magnificence.
The creation opens with the hypnotic mellowness of the purest extract of Bulgarian rose, in which the essence of a thousand petals has been distilled into a single drop of precious oil. This priceless essence fuses with Sicilian saffron accompanied by the effervescence of citrus, with predominating notes of Sorrento lemon and Calabrian bergamot. This seductive and hypnotic top is carried on a warm, enveloping middle lending an intense and generous strength to the creation, with the freshness of Bourbon geranium and the luxuriant delicacy of Polynesian Ylang Ylang blended masterfully with the aphrodisiac effect of precious ambergris underscored by the strength of cypriol.
The entire opus is sustained by a richly structured and complex base with extraordinary persistence and a truly unique hypnotic strength. This base consists of a sensory journey through highly prized wood notes, with predominant Italian walnut wood complemented by the oak of Lucretia Borgia's beloved forests and Tuscan oak. These wood notes are matched with oakmoss and musk, which, together with the precious, constant drive of sandalwood and red patchouli, underscore the seductive strength of the entire creation.
A creation inspired by the hypnotic seduction and invincible force of timeless beauty, which pays homage to the irresistibly beguiling and magnificent yet lethal spirit of Lucretia Borgia. And just like her potions, this fragrance will bewitch with inescapable seduction if worn with regal, fatal style.
