FRAGRANZE N. 3 – NOVELTIES AND CURIOSITIES
And here is a sneak of the novelties and curiosities showcased at Fragranze N.3.
GREAT FRENCH PERFUMERY. THE ENGLISH TRADITION. SCENTS FROM ITALY AND FROM ALL
OVER THE WORLD.
Timeless perfumes and fragrances, international names with the type of class only history can bestow. A
highly refined choice of natural raw materials, pure artisan tradition in the decantation and processing, a
persistently elegant composition that can include up to 80 difference essences. Preserved in precious bottles,
which have become myths in their own right.
Accord Parfait. Here is a brand that embodies its purpose in its name, a quest for the perfect blend of
fragrances. Accord Parfait creates each fragrance by blending only two notes, so that each remains absolute.
The results are unusual fragrances without opening notes or final codas. They are true olfactory icons
presented in the typical amber vials used by master perfumers in their laboratories.
Cavaparfums. Now it is wine, with its floral, fruity and woody bouquets that was the source of inspiration. In
2003 Cavaparfums launched two Grands Crus Millésimés perfumes, a white for women and a red for men.
Clive Christian. The London designer, who in 1999 acquired the historic “Profumeria della Corona”
established in 1872 - has created a set of jewel-studded perfume bottles inspired by Elton John‟s “White Tie & Tiara Ball,” the London social event of the year. “White Tie” and “Tiara” contain “Clive Christian No1”, the
world‟s most expensive fragrance for men and women. Each bottle is adorned with white pearls, rubies and
sapphires, on an 18 carat gold chain with a single white diamond set into it.
Creed. A house with six generations of master perfumers behind it. The women‟s perfume “Springflower”
created in 1996 by its current head, Oliver Creed, one of the world‟s finest “noses,” is an explosion of flowers,
fruits and colors. In the full minimalist spirit of the „nineties it enchanted women with a witty and flirtatious
shocking pink bottle.
D’Orsay. In the XIX century, Parisian Count, Alfred D‟Orsay, a sophisticated dandy and extrovert established
Maison Parfums d’Orsay. Today the firm is celebrating the fragrance “Tilleul” in a collector‟s bottle
designed by the artist Restrepo.
Eau d’Italie. Here is a new fragrance to celebrate the enchantment of the South – created exclusively from
the famous Positano tree Le Sirenuse. It‟s a sea breeze that gently blows through citrus orchards and
Mediterranean maquis: magnolia, bergamot, budding currants, with a pinch of incense and a dash of musk –
it‟s like opening a window in Positano.
Esteban. For 25 years in the south of France Esteban has been expressing his love for perfumes with collections that tell a story, recall a memory and arouse emotions. The new line, is inspired by the sea – its
colors and olfactory lure, and the fragrance is called “Bleu Haute Mer”.
Floris. The prestigious fragrance Floris (a London brand established in 1730) that has received 17 Royal
Warrants from the House of Windsor through the centuries. “Floris Special 127” (orange and bergamot
fruits: green Sicilian mandarin oranges blend with grapefruit and lemon. “Fleur du Matin” is a perfumed
journey, based on dew and flowering herbs during a morning stroll on the French island of Porquerolles.
Montale. Pierre Montale discovered “Les Aouds” and “Les Attars”, perfumed Arabian unguents obtained by
extracting the oils of the Oud, a mysterious plant that emanates no odor whatsoever when it is healthy, but
the dead trunks and branches produce an aromatic, brownish resin when attacked by certain molds. Using
an ancient and secret method, and storing the oils in cellars, he transform them in rich and sophisticated
fragrances, such as ”Oud Damascus” that combines the elegance of Arabian Aoud, Damascus rose
enhanced with Oliban pearls.

Bermuda lime base and over seventy secret ingredients. Royall colognes are sold in unique glass bottles –
each one is different from the other, and is handcrafted using clay moulds made over a century ago. Alain
Delon and Sir Yehudi Menuhin are among Royall‟s most loyal fans.

Daniel Ouaki. Later they worked together to created the Satellite line of fine and costume jewelry which has
become a cult collection in France. Now at Fragranze they are presenting “Padparadscha”, a fragrance

renowned developer of the “Gommina Simmon‟s” gel, is entirely devoted to the health and care of hair. The
“Conditioner” repairs damaged hair making it soft and manageable, and it is also the first “untangler” that

Valobra. The first Sapone Valobra was made in Genoa in 1903 and even today it is produced according to
