Act III Scene One
All is set for the rendezvous.
The soft lights seem to fondle the wrinkled sound of the old vinyl disc, and play hide-and-seek in the warm embrace of the jazz singer's voice. The wide French doors are open onto the terrace. Outside, only the sound of cicadas, their shrill calls drowning in the warm summer breeze. On the tea table, a nosegay of freshly plucked flowers. You uncork a champagne bottle and fill the two flutes. The unmistakable flavor of yeast hovers in the air. You settle into the couch, enjoy the moment, and take a good look around - every single detail is simply perfect. You cannot wait to see what's about to happen next. Cannot help smiling in anticipation. You wish these moments would never end. There is a knock on the door.
A superb piece of classical perfumery interpreted for the modern day, L'Attesa is one of the most beautiful iris fragrances produced since Iris Silver Mist. Framing a buttery orris note in a yeasty bubble of champagne and malt, the composition is wrapped in a lightly leathery, lightly mossy cloak that winks at compositions of the past without any heaviness. It feels modern, effervescent, and luxurious, with a slightly sour tang from the champagne and leather notes. A perfume with which to savor the pleasure of the wait for a lover.
