In the absence of a trip to Milan, Prestige Italian lifestyle brand Trussardi have come up with the next best thing.
Trussardi have released a suite of six Rich, European fragrances, Le Vie Di Milano (the streets of Milan) evoking memories of Milan’s sexiest locations through exquisite, lingering, strong scents.
The stunning range of six limited edition, unique unisex fragrances, encapsulate different elements of Milan’s life, locations and culture.
The luxe fragrance collection Le Vie De Milano is a reminder of the power of fragrance to transport us to another time and place in an instant.
And there’s plenty of science to back that up. The two regions in the brain that deal with memories and emotion are intertwined. According to Harvard Professor Venkatesh Murphy, scents are processed by the brain’s olfactory bulb, the structure in the front of the brain that sends instructions to the body’s central command.
He says scent takes a direct route to the memory and emotion area of the brain, the limbic system, amygdala and the hippocampus. In short, what that means is fragrances really do have the capacity to change the way we feel and bring us closer to the destinations we are all longing for so much at this time. Particularly given we breathe an average of 25,000 times a day through the nose.
Inside strikingly luxurious, slick packaging in hues of deep green, red, black, cream and grey, are bottles with the Trussardi logo and name of the fragrance beautifully stamped in glorious gold at the centre of each bottle.
The deeply coloured satin glass bottles are topped with the gold-toned sculptured head of the Italian greyhound, and a miniature leather collar the same colour as the bottle.
Limitless Shopping Via Della Spiga; is an oriental flowery musk fragrance encapsulating the allure and enchantment of Milan’s exclusive shopping boutiques. Bergamot, apple & honeycomb with rose, jasmine and magnolia and honey create a hypnotic perfume
Summary; Sensual, unforgettable, sophisticated fragrance for the confident, stylish fashionista
Passeggiata In Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II; in red packaging evokes memories of Milan’s slick, pastry filled coffee shops. With notes of coffee, cinnamon and hazelnut, as well as coconut, saltry tuberose and hints of jasmine Sambac.
Summary; This is a sweet but sultry, enticing, sexy gourmand oriental floral, any weather fragrance.
Aperitivo Milanese Porta Nuova: in a grey glass bottle evokes memories of Aperitivo drinks in Capri in summer (for me personally, but it is inspired by Porta Nuova in Milan) with notes of mandarin, Neroli, Calabrian bergamot, vanilla and amber. The perfect fragrance here in Australia to wear moving into spring, when all we want to do is dream of European summers gone by.
Summary; Perfect sweet floral in spring, summer.
Behind The Curtain Piazza Alla Scala; is a rich, warm, strong, European fragrance of woody, spicy leather in a deep green bottle. It’s a heady, hot, sultry mix of notes of saffron, bergamot, juniper, jasmine, sandalwood and patchouli. The mix creates a bold, long lasting, rich scent.
Summary; Pure, rich elegance for the confident, well dressed man any time and for elegantly groomed women by night in cooler weather, ideally by a roaring fire on a leather couch.
I Vicoli Via Fiori Chiari ; This Bohemian fragrance in deep red oozes spice and mystery. Inspired by the maze of alleys and narrow streets leading from stylish Via Fiori Chiari to Brera, madagascan vanilla, star anise, patchouli, and black pepper blend to create a woody, floral fragrance. Rich and warm, its notes are contrary, creating an enviable mystique.
Summary; A striking fragrance bursting with rich spices perfect for a misty Milan day, warm or cool.
Music Noir Perfume Enhancer: This novel add-on fragrance is used to blend with any or all of the fragrances in the range to create a new blend for your mood, or it can also be worn alone.
The fragrance is an interesting contrast between deep Iris and soft Musk, as well as notes of Jasmine and Cedar Wood.
Summary: This fragrance worn alone is light and warm, and almost addictive. Gorgeous to wear to feel sensual.
