NARCISO, the new fragrance from Narciso Rodriguez defines sensuality with a modern kind of elegance. A man once shared with Narciso that “Every time my wife puts on one of your dresses, we never leave the house.” In the spirit of this sentiment, Narciso Rodriguez presents a new fragrance that celebrates a woman’s powers of seduction with the utmost luxury.
“I have always been conscious of the way men look at women, how women seduce men, and this inspires my work and the way I see women,” says Narciso Rodriguez.
NARCISO embraces a modern femininity that’s both assertive and elusive, illuminating the universal magic of seduction and attraction.
Narciso Rodriguez reveals an audacious vision signalling a new direction in perfumery. NARCISO reinterprets the alchemy of attraction as he challenges a traditionally masculine vetiver-based scent. A duality lends the fragrance depth and intrigue: strength and vulnerability, rawness and refinement.
Ultimately, NARCISO is a uniquely sexy fragrance. The fragrance transforms notes of vetiver, the most elegant note from the classic woody family, with a daring olfactory composition that encapsulates intense femininity. While musk remains the signature heart of the scent, it’s a voluptuous musk softened by amber, providing warmth and sensuality. Assertive woody notes of vetiver and luminous white and dark cedars meet tender florals, lucid gardenia and soft radiant Bulgarian rose to create a singular synthesis both bold and subtle. The result: a seductive most feminine fragrance that lingers and endures.
From the distinctive eye of a purist comes a bottle that personifies fine artistry and eloquence. Evolving from a simple square, the cube evokes the designer’s signature tenets: beauty and logic. Within the transparent glass cube, a soft sculpted half-oval floats, made of stone-white lacquer. “The stone-white colour of the bottle was matched to a stone I found on the shore in Cypress on a visit to Aphrodite’s birthplace,” explains Narciso Rodriguez, adding a serendipitous turn to the mythical romance of NARCISO’s creation. The signature rectangular top is a creamy matte nude, juxtaposed against the glistening glass bottle, while the black logo stands out, clean, simple and assertive.
“Black, white and nude are my essential colours,” says Rodriguez, “Each time I start a collection, I start with these colours; they are the elemental colours we refer to from the beginning.”
A tribute to modern femininity, NARCISO signals a vital transformation for Narciso Rodriguez’s iconic fragrance collection without sacrificing the couture sensibility and timeless sensuality of the modern classic, for her. NARCISO embodies the mercurial nature of attraction and embraces the extremes of seduction with utmost grace. The epitome of unassuming elegance and intrepid sensuality, the Narciso Rodriguez woman seduces without artifice.
