Are you one of the many NARCISO fans out there? We suggest you make a little space on your dressing table for this beauty: a stunning eau de toilette version of a fragrance that’s become a true modern classic.
Actually, we suggest you make a space right in the centre – because this is a bottle worth showcasing: a transparent cube, with an inky black almost heart-shaped oval inner core. (It’s a graphic contrast to the bottle for the original NARCISO, which was milky white.)
As utterly feminine as you’d expect from the designer – who you can read more about here – this just-launched latest opens magnetically with bright notes of Bulgarian rose as the overture to its white floralcy. But what the much-loved NARCISO also has going for it is the intrigue in the base – and here, alongside black and white notes of cedar, there’s a cool, equally woodsy note of vetiver: a poised juxtaposition.
The bonus? That black glass will help protect the precious ‘juice’ from its No.1 enemy: sunlight.
