Fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez became celebrated in the world of perfumes with his debut Narciso Rodriguez For Her from 2003. That minimalist name and design, as well as musky sensuality adorn his latest olfactory creation that comes out in September of 2014—feminine fragrance Narciso Eau de Parfum.
"I wanted to create an extremely sexy fragrance that would turn a man’s head,” announces the designer, with the description, “The sensuality becomes a little bit more sexy, a little bit more intoxicating.”
The composition is composed of white gardenia and rose above the warm heart of musk. The base includes woody accords of vetiver and two types of cedar: black and white.
The bottle is simple: square, milky white with the name printed in black letters. The face of the perfume is a model Raquel Zimmermann.Brief reviews of three recent designer fragrances: My Burberry, Narciso by Narciso Rodriguez and DKNY MYNY. Bonus points if you can guess right off the bat which I liked best and which I liked least (hey, I'm nothing if not predictable) and do comment if you've smelled any recent launches we should all know about.
Narciso Rodriguez draws his inspiration from women, for women. His creations are designed to celebrate their beauty and sensuality, to set off their body. He has a unique, timeless style that combines the rules of American ready-to-wear fashion, the traditions of European Haute-Couture and the sensuality of his Latin heritage.
On some occasions the colour of a perfume’s packaging perfectly matches the shade of the smell it contains. This aesthetic and olfactory synchronicity can add to the overall experience of a fragrance, joining together the tactile and the ephemeral to make something that is ultimately more enjoyable.
NARCISO, the latest fragrance from American fashion designer, Narciso Rodriguez is one such fragrance and it marries a bottle and a fragrance of white, nude and black to create an immersive olfactory experience that, even in its flesh tones, is distinctly colourful.
