Van Cleef & Arpels - Collection Extraordinaire - Néroli Amara
"For this creation, I was inspired by a beautiful story, the one of the Princess of Nerola whom vowed a boundless love to the amara orange tree..." - Quentin Bisch, Maître Parfumeur
In the beginning, Néroli Amara seems to radiate on the skin the invigorating freshness and elegant appearance of a cologne. A radiant chord of sun-drenched citrus aromas enters into an invigorating, subtly spicy dialogue with pink pepper and fine cypress wood. Top and heart notes merge harmoniously and then reveal the true character and the infinitely multi-faceted floral opulence of the creation. At the finale, the Eau de Parfum reveals the wonderful vision of its creator. The sensual scent of orange blossom - warm, sweet and intoxicating - envelops and seduces the senses like a gentle breeze, reminiscent of the warmth and delight of the Mediterranean spring sun.
Nature has always been an important source of inspiration for Van Cleef & Arpels' high jewellery art. With the COLLECTION EXTRAORDINAIRE, the Haute Parfumerie Van Cleef & Arpels also pays homage to nature with unique, wonderful scent compositions. For these exceptional fragrances, the best perfume raw materials, reflecting the entire beauty of the plant world, have been used in the tradition of the great art of perfumery. Each perfume carries the formula number given to it by the maître perfumer.
At first glance, the bottle's rectilinear shape makes it appear restrained yet perfectly elegant. In detail, however, it plays very subtly with the unmistakable features of the Maison. The filigree pendant decorates the bottle nonchalantly and shows the iconic VAN CLEEF & ARPELS monogram with the famous column of Place Vendôme. In addition, the house's monogram was engraved in the solid glass bottom of the bottle like a signature of the créateurs. A matt black lacquered metal cap closes the scent jewel.
The case, in elegant white, was decorated with the Van Cleef & Arpels monogram in plain embossing. The typical soft green of the brand is reminiscent of inspiration from nature. Each fragrance in the collection was packed like a jewel in a high-quality jewellery box.
