Paul Smith presents his latest olfactory pair named Portrait, made as his most intimate and personal fragrances yet. Portrait for Women and Portrait for Men scents are inspired by memories, travels and photographs. They emerged out of collaboration with French model and fragrance expert Barnabe Fillion.
Portrait for Women is a floral – green fragrance, light, fresh and feminine. Starting fresh and fruity, it later becomes very powdery and musky. Top notes are bergamot, black tea, cardamom, black currant and peach. Its heart captures wild rose garden together with jasmine note, embedded on myrrh and musk that give elegance and depth of this perfume.
Bottle design is described as elegant and timeless, inspired by ultimate traveler’s accessories – a flask and a camera. The men’s bottle combines silver metal and smoky gray glass, while the women’s offers golden metal and transparent glass that reveals gentle rosy fluid.
