Cerruti 1881 Essentiel

Cerruti 1881 Essential Banner.jpg

In 1881, Antonio Cerruti founded a weaving workshop in Biella, an Italian town renowned for its rich heritage in quality wool and fabric production. From these roots, the Cerruti name has expanded from luxurious fabric to acclaimed fashion without ever losing sight of its core values emphasizing quality and style, craftsmanship and technology.

At the age of 20, Nino Cerruti took over the family business. Filled with vision and an expert in production procedures, he began to modernise the textile manufacturer to incorporate clothing production. Given the norms of bespoke tailoring at the time. Nino sparked waves in the fashion community when he launched a men’s ready-to-wear collection, called Hitman, in 1957. This introduction received widespread coverage in the press and the public hailed it as a revolution; a confident departure from fashion norms and one that paved the way for the future for menswear.

Charismatic and talented, Nino Cerruti was drawn to the grand stage of Paris, the then undisputed fashion capital of the world. In 1967 he officially  launched Cerruti 1881, the luxury ready-to-wear line for men, and opened a boutique at Place de la Madeleine. Designer Giorgio Armani designed for the Hitman and Cerruti labels early in his career. Cerruti remains a preferred clothier for the stars and the rich and famous, and frequently provides designs and garments for use in films and on the red carpets.

Fragrances were an early and important part of the fashion house. The company’s first fragrance Nino Cerruti for Men, introduced in 1978, is the first in a long line of classic fragrances. The first fragrance for women, Nino Cerruti Pour Femme, was launched in 1984.


Cerruti 1881 Essential Flacon


It is a life philosophy: that of the slow life where one takes the time to admire a landscape, to breathe in warm air, to allow the skin to be caressed by strong sunlight under a light breeze.


Now the fashion house launches a new masculine fragrance Essentiel. Nino Cerruti 1881 Essentiel is described as a pleasant citrusy/spicy/woody perfume for manly-man. Created by Sonia Constant Cerruti 1881 Essentiel is a daily fragrance, yet with a long-lasting aroma, truly intense and aromatic. It has a masculine character offering a graceful and an elegant aroma. 

Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Grapefruit
Heart notes: Basil, Pink pepper
Base notes: Vetiver, Sandalwood, Oakmoss

This amazing new fragrance is advertised by the handsome Spanish model Andrés Velencoso Segura and was shot by Richard Phibbs.

Azzaro Chrome Under The Pole


Licend by the Clarins group, fashion house Azzaro is introducing a new freshly/aquatic and revitalizing new fragrance for men, Azzaro Chrome Under The Pole. It is a new limited edition perfume for men with a pleasantly fresh and easy aroma ideal for daily use.  

Knowing that Loris Azzaro designed Chrome for his grandson, we couldn’t think of a better symbol of heritage.

Christian Courtin-Clarin

Driven by the same pioneering spirit and passion, Azzaro is one of the main partners of the Under The Pole expedition, dedicated to pushing the human limits of undersea exploration.


Chrome is writing a new chapter of its adventures. Azzaro has reinvented its mythical perfume in a limited edition that honors the privileged collaboration with the pioneering Under the Pole expedition. A perfect partnership explained by Christian Courtin-Clarins and Ghislain Bardout.

Azzaro Fragrances has always embodied the winds of freedom. It is this conviction that underlies “Time to Shine:” each passing moment is unique, and it is up to us to seize it. This is why the partnership with Under The Pole seemed natural to us: we are very pleased to support these out-of-the-ordinary expeditions. Choosing Ghislain Bardout and Emmanuelle Périé-Bardout (co-founder of Under The Pole) seemed only obvious.

Christian Courtin-Clarins

Men will find it an easy scent with a nice citrusy/woody opening lightly developing into a fresh/watery fragrance. Chrome’s emblematic signature – a woody citrus accord, with a powerful freshness inspired by its aquatic essence – is reinterpreted in a new and original formula. Its alcohol content is replaced entirely by water. An invigorating sensation permeates your skin from the moment the fragrance is applied. This immediate freshness creates an instant chilling effect, as biting as the polar winds.


Azzaro Chrome Under The Pole preserves the same bottle shape as the original Chrome fragrance, yet more modern and freshly rather the original fragrance. 

Azzaro Chrome Under The Pole is available as 100ml Eau de Toilette.
