Italian fashion house Giorgio Armani expands its luxurious Privé Collection with a new fabulous perfume for women Privé La Femme Nacre. Its dark and passive design inspires a strong smell ideal for a confident and powerful woman. Armani Privé La Femme Nacre is definitely a fragrance that will suit an elegant woman during a special occasion or evening wear.
The fragrance was developed by Marie Salamagne, at Firmenich. It is composed of very precious Iris Absolute and a precisely calibrated accord of different musks. The Firabs iris, chosen for Nacre, is a very rare quality. It combines the rich, creamy facet of iris, with a powdery, almost talc-like note.
Mother-of-Pearl is a semi-precious material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer. A sign of luxury and elegance, it was used in marquetry in the 19th century to adorn daily objects of the Haute Bourgeoisie. The Mother-of-Pearl used on the Privé Nacre bottle comes from New Zealand oysters. Very thin films (around 3/10 of a millimeter) are extracted from the shells and glued on a plate that is then lacquered. Each Mother-of-Pearl film is different which makes every plate unique.
Each of the 1,000 pieces of La Femme Nacre is then numbered, on the bottle and the box, in order to give a last touch of exclusivity to this already very singular fragrance, Giorgio Armani Privé La Femme Nacre is available as 100 ml Parfum for £500.
