Xerjoff - Sketchbook - P.33
In perfumery, as in every art genre, sketches are made, possible formulas are conceived, tasted, discarded or refined - and while some fragrances mature directly from idea to product, there are others whose formulas are written down and patiently slumbering between the pages of a notebook, waiting for their moment of glory. In his Sketchbook, Sergio Momo keeps these unique compositions, carefully collected over the years, whose fascination he could not resist, even if their time did not seem to have come yet. With the Sketchbook Collection, the artist and creative head of Xerjoff now offers these treasures their own big moment. The prelude to his unique collection of hitherto dormant fragrances is Page 33, or P.33 for short, a sumptuous perfume with a floral-fruity character that is entirely dedicated to Xerjoff's credo and presents exquisite basic ingredients in a unique combination. Surrounded by an exquisite bottle crafted for Xerjoff by Tuscan artisans, P.33 unfolds with graceful sounds to create a luxurious interplay of olfactory, visual and tactile aesthetics.
As if Sergio Momo's perfume had finally escaped Morpheus' arms after its time of waiting, P.33 awakens as an aromatic gem that is no longer able to slumber in obscurity for a moment. With fascinating lightness, its vital floral sounds become tangible fragrant reality alongside fruity notes. Citrus bergamot and grapefruit, united with juicy apple and pink pepper form the luminous opening of the composition, which gently transitions into the lilting melody of a masterfully composed heart note. Momo creates it from powdery iris, whose graceful elegance is wafted by a velvety veil of cinnamon alongside intensely green fragrant cypress. Their melange floats above the harmonious base notes of the creation, which are formed from cedarwood, musk and amber and complete P.33's elegantly shimmering picture. As the first fragrance in its Sketchbook Collection, Xerjoff wraps P.33 in a handcrafted bottle artfully crafted in matt and polished gold tones.
