This month sees the worldwide launch of Just Cavalli For Her, the latest fragrance by Roberto Cavalli.
The creation of Firmenich master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Fabrice Pellegrin, this creamy floral fragrance has a top note of neroli and a heart note of the Tahitian Tiare flower (the source of monoï oil), anchored by a velvety palissander wood accord.
The fresh opening leads nicely into the intense centre, settling well into its alluring rosewood base. With its girly sweetness and evocative lust-laced tones, it deftly captures both femininity and sensuality.
Love at first bite – A call of the wild echoing through the cityscape.
– Roberto Cavalli
The pink glass/golden metal bottle and its pink python-skin collar, together with the cheesy tagline, isn’t very attractive to me – the brand describes the snake-skin as being ‘reminiscent of the animal instinct it can unleash’ (erm, ok) – but it surely is apt for this Year of the Snake. ;)
However, I actually like the scent quite a lot because of its smooth sensual nature infused with a playful vibe, its character clearly defined in the first whiff I had of it, even before I’d read the press release. Unfortunately, the eau de toilette is very fleeting and touch-up spritzes are needed for it to last longer on the body.
The face of this new fragrance is Georgia May Jagger, probably as well-known for her parents (Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall) as her trademark gap teeth.
Directed by Jonas Akerlund who has created music videos for Madonna, Lady Gaga, U2 and The Rolling Stones, the sexy tv ad features a passionate chase between two lovers marked by the Cavalli bite. Hot!
In Singapore, this scent can be found exclusively – for now – at all Nuance-Watson Perfumes & Cosmetics stores at Changi Airport, where it retails at S$63 (50 ml) and S$88 (100 ml), excluding GST. Do note that travel retail prices can fluctuate and the prices might differ over the months.
The fragrance will be available at local downtown stores in April 2013.
