Inspiration: Italica (Harvey Nichols London Exclusive) by Xerjoff.
Italian craftsmanship is exemplified perfectly through the Xerjoff lens. Its sister company, Casamorati, has produced a Harvey Nichols London exclusive creation that attests to the quality that the fragrance world has witnessed for so many years. Part of what makes fragrances under the Xerjoff umbrella so exclusive is the lack of availability and the guarantee of quality that only a pretty penny can fetch. Typically distinguished by true-to-form aromas and bold profiles, Casamorati welcomes to its family Italica. Our interpretation of this exclusive creation bears such a strong likeness to the original that we decided to slightly alter the name to Italiano. Named after the Roman city, Italica is a new take on almond embodying a gourmand persona preceded by other masterpieces in the line like Lira and Dama Bianca. Saffron breaks apart the sweetness with its eastern disposition relieving the fragrance from candy-store comparisons. Milk and toffee interplay for a decadent sensation few fragrances have achieved in the past. Precious woods hold a signature in the base and sustain the virility of the blend. Both refined and delicious, Italica may be our new favorite in the lineup. Luckily, we were able to snatch a bottle during a recent trip to England where we first experienced the breadth of quality and extravagance a single bottle can hold. London natives: we bow our heads to you.
