Introducing Etro Fragrance: Pegaso, Magot, MuskPosted: November 11, 2011
Here at hitchcock Madrona we have personally selected a range of the Etro Fragrance line with our client in mind. We LOVE every fragrance we chose individually. Today I am going to highlight three of the twelve in our collection. But, first things first – each bottle is 3.3oz (100ml) and costs $165. These are going to be delightful gifts this holiday season. I know I have mentioned this before, but they are all uni-sex so you can share with your partner. How convenient?!
PEGASO: bergamot, lime, neroli, basil, pepper, iris, cedarwood, benzoin, rockrose
Etro: “Pegaso is a heraldic figure par excellence, but also a fragrance that marries the modern freshness of citrus fruits with the classicism of Umbrian and Tuscan castles and villages evoked by neroli, of immaculate cloisters infused with the aromas of basil and lime, not forgetting the jaunty note added by benzoin and rockrose, which let us peek through the hedges of a wonderful Italian garden”.
Erica: When I first smelled Pegaso I was hit by the lime and citrus notes. Then as it dried I got a floral(ish) clean laundry complexity. It is very luxurious (well, all of them are but this reminds me of what a, I guess, hypothetical high-end boutique smells like. Does that make sense to anyone else?) yet still very light. This would be a great summer scent- I smell the “hedges of a wonderful Italian garden” with lime trees in the summer.
MAGOT: peach, patchouli, vanilla, bergamot, lemon, lavender, sagebrush, rose, iris, violet, tuberose, sandalwood, cedarwood, musk
Etro: “The ideal weapon for audacious ladies planning to entice young men and gentlemen. Making him dizzy with the scent of patchouli, exciting him with flowers and citrus fruits, stunning him with essences of musk.”
Erica: Very influenced by the Far East, the patchouli is very hidden in Magot but I think that is what gives it depth. This fragrance is sexy and spicy but not overpowering. I think men could wear this for sure (the Etro description was so woman centered I wanted to add that). I can’t seem to pick any one note out it is kind of sweet – caramel, warmth, musk.
MUSK: deer musk, sandalwood, bergamot, grapefruit, verbena, white rose, guaiacum, lime
Etro: “Subtly sensual, the musk is a true symbol of elegance and equilibrium. It sparks a physical, but also mental and spiritual attraction.”
Erica: This is really light and easy to wear for a straight up musk. This can be a daily scent that you don’t have to think about. So, subtle and soft – almost feminine which is unique for a musk. It is an alluring scent – I can’t seem to get enough of this one.
Have a great night!
