Roberto Ugolini - 17 Rosso
Aromatic extravagance, sensual opulence and incomparable refinement!
Already in the opening, it is clear that this is an impressive and rich fragrance. A gorgeously fruity white peach brushed with the spicy suede-like nuances of saffron, cool mint, and green raspberry leaves explodes into your consciousness, immediately wowing you and leaving an impression of something truly special; unique. A subtle but powerful fruity-floral heart develops soon after, dominated by the lush, banana-rich tones of finest ylang ylang, a rich damask rose, fruity-spicy pink pepper and peony notes, all rounded off with peppery nasturtium. The base is balsamic, woody, and musky, with a powerful mélange of leathery styrax, floral-soft ambrette seeds, woody amyris, vetiver, and cedar wood.
17 Rosso is a truly unisex fragrance. The bottle is dressed in an exciting red metallic hue, matching this wonderful house number in Florence.
