OLFACTIVE: Zesty Citrus
PERFUMER: Clement Gavarry
Smashingly Brilliant was inspired by Diana Vreeland's love of Capri. Mrs. Vreeland vacationed on the Italian island frequently and is credited with bringing the Capri sandal to America. Smashingly Brilliant is a classic, fresh scent for both men and women.
A clean, zesty fragrance, this is a long lasting citrus scent which is a result of the exceptionally high concentration (80-85%) of Calabrian bergamot and lemon oil that is used. Typically, the concentration level is around 60%.
Refreshing aromatic notes of verbena and juniper berries are tempered by peppery basil at the core. A white suede accord adds a sexy, unexpected element to the scent’s dry down encouraging the fragrance to linger on the skin.
