Since when did Italian fragrance become such a serious endeavor? We have to admit, we've been feeling a bit lost lately amongst all these challenging, avant-garde conceptual pieces- every now and again, don't you just want to wear something unapologetically luxurious? La Danza Delle Libellule (“the dance of the dragonflies, ”), a joyously self-assured fruity gourmand, is the answer to our casual, indulgent, dare-we-say-girly? prayers. Based on an operetta by the Austrian composer Franz Lehar, it's the kind bold, beautiful, and unapologetically feminine scent that's sure to conjure up fantasies of majestic castles and storybook romance to charm even the most jaded fragrance fan.
Like the delicately beautiful insects that inspired Lehar in the first place, La Danza Della Libellule delights us with its playful grace. Opening with an intensely juicy burst of apple and bergamot, La Danza immediately distinguishes itself from more straightforward gourmands with its understated approach to sweetness: dry cedar and rich cinnamon give contrast to the bright fruitiness without ever getting sugary or cloying. A pure vanilla, supported with cocoa and musk, comforts and pampers to soothe even the most troubled heart. We wear fragrance for plenty of reasons: for love, for fashion, for art. This fragrance, we just want to wear for ourselves.
