EAU DE PARFUM
An exploration of leather and suede, timeless yet ultra-contemporary. Some vintage leather references may be present but yet, SO SUEDE delivers a totally modern message of strength, nobility and elegance. A masculine elegance that can be shared by all. Or is it that sheer feminine audacity desired by all?
“As an inventor of fragrances, I feel very comfortable working with citrus notes, so, for this composition, I wanted to express my deep love for citrus through an extremely intricate top note that can be described as an anamorphosis of hesperidic notes: the spike of lemons, the elegance of bergamots, the sweetness of oranges, the floral notes of mandarins, the fruitiness of tangerines, all together working in unison.
Also, I always perceive a hint of iris notes (irones) in certain kinds of Mediterranean oranges and that thought took me to anchor this scent with the real deal: ultra pure iris absolute from Florence, bolstered with the best quality vetiver essence. This scent has become one I wear very frequently. I hope you become an addict as well!"

SO SUEDE, BEHIND THE NAME
Francisco's briefing for this perfume was clear: a fresh perfume of structure but with a lot of strength and permanence on skin. A perfume for those who love Mediterranean perfumes based on bergamot, lemon, petitgrain and the usual suspects, but who want to feel the perfume on the skin for the whole day and not just a few hours. The working name of the perfumer was "Agua Alegre”, which means “Joyful Water" in English, so having got a very powerful perfume, they gave it the name "Strong Water". AQUAFORTIS is the Latin translation of that name.
