The months in which we’ve anxiously waited for the launch of this perfume were well worth the result as it seems that Marchesa designers, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig opted to treat this project with as much dedication as they treat also their designs with, so no wonder that the result surpassed our highest expectations.

The concoction is alluring, empowering, feminine and intoxicating as the brand’s designer wanted the fragrance to evoke the same emotions as when putting on one of the numerous dreamy Marchesa ball gowns.

The elegant yet contemporary bottle design underlines the style of the fragrance, as Georgina Chapman revealed that she ‘wanted the bottle to feel like a piece of crystal. It should be something special like everything we do here at Marchesa’, and they certainly pulled it off as the chiseled glass featuring sparkling details has a certain rawness and attractiveness that are hard to put into words.
