L'Attesa

$158.00

A delightful tussle between bounding anticipation and an attempt at refined, laissez-faire patience. L'Attesa translates the moment before reunion, when one lover waits for the other with only champagne and flowers for company. Luca Maffei expertly illustrates this delectable tension. Beer extract evokes the yeasty exhale of champagne uncorking--the waiting lover has grown too thirsty--and nervous. Angelica's spicy effervescence simulates the perfect, crisp relief of a delicate mousse. Three varieties of iris engineer a multifaceted masterpiece: florid yet taut, rich and slightly oily (yet never oleaginous), the iris in the heart of L'Attesa is eminently modish and delightfully mysterious. Carrot seed enhances this powder-free iris, maintaining its silken (rather than fluffy) texture. Refreshing sandalwood, lush Ylang Ylang and rich tuberose invisibly form a profound yet subtle contrasting perspective, which stabilizes and reinvigorates the floral core of this scent. Oakmoss matches iris’ dynamism, engineering a final space in which iris echoes as if within the green-grey haze of our imagination, a dream of the long-awaited lover reverberating against closed eyelids. Suddenly, the dream becomes reality; with a knock at the door, (the soft sound of iris falling into the taut, suggestive contours of leather) we awake and wait no more.
