In­spired by the Amalfi coast

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Trends -

THE allure of South­ern Italy’s Amalfi coast in­spired Tom Ford to cre­ate his Man­darino di Amalfi fra­grance in 2014. Three years later, the brand is re­vis­it­ing this paradise des­ti­na­tion with a new sum­mer scent in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the “bright tran­quil­ity” of this “calm idyll”.

With va­ca­tion time just round the cor­ner, Ford is invit­ing us on a jour­ney with Man­darino di Amalfi Ac­qua, his new fra­grance for men and women. He’s been in­spired by the scents in the air on the Amalfi coast, one of Europe’s most pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions in the sum­mer. The hints of man­darin, lemon, basil, and or­ange blos­som of­fer a fore­taste of va­ca­tions by the sea.

The fra­grance opens with an herba­ceous scent of tar­ragon, mint, and black­cur­rant in­fused with cit­rus fruits (man­darin, lemon, berg­amot, neroli and grape­fruit) and hints of basil, black pep­per and co­rian­der seed.

Its heart notes are or­ange blos­som, clary sage, jas­mine and shiso leaves. The base notes are ve­tiver, am­ber, lab­danum, musk and civette. The com­bi­na­tion is sparkling and ra­di­ant, un­der­pinned by a sooth­ing warmth.

The bot­tle for Man­darino di Amalfi Ac­qua is a frosted ver­sion of the fla­con for the orig­i­nal fra­grance. Its sky-blue and gold tones re­mind us of the Amalfi coast. – AFP Re­laxnews
