AMALFI FLOWERS FOR WOMEN
LIMITED EDITION AT SAKS FIFTH AVENUE FOR FALL 2007
Olivier CREED, sixth-generation master perfumer, presents Amalfi Flowers, the new limited-edition fragrance for women that captures the euphoria of sunrise in the garden of Villa Rufolo on Italy’s shimmering Amalfi coast.
A heart-lifting aria of fragrance, Amalfi Flowers lives only once.
Three hundred seventy-five bottles are offered worldwide, each wrapped in Italian leather the hue of Amalfi terra cotta (1.7 ounces, $270, Saks Fifth Avenue exclusively). Sixty flacons signed and numbered by Mr. CREED are offered (8.4 ounces, $450).
As Olivier CREED and his son, Erwin, walked the garden paths of the exquisite Villa Rufolo perched above the Amalfi coast, the first light of dawn and morning breezes stirred a soft harmony of scent. Plump Amalfi lemons, roses of Ravello and bougainvillea blended in the Mediterranean air and light. Mr. CREED paused with his son to draft the first notes of Amalfi Flowers, a masterful composition perfected in further travels throughout Italy and in CREED’s Paris workshop over the next several months.
The top note of Amalfi Flowers is succulent Amalfi lemon, bougainvillea of Maiori, mandarin orange from Sicily, basil, bergamot, black currant and Jamaican ginger.
The middle note is patchouli, roses of Ravello and iris from Florence.
The bottom note is ambergris, Parma violets, sandalwood and notes of Russian leather.
The limited-edition 1.7-ounce Italian leather-wrapped bottle in which Amalfi Flowers is presented is not only elegant, but also shatterproof and ideal for home, gym or packing in checked luggage.
