The Rebirth of a Masterpiece 100 years later…
From the altar-box to the crystal bottle, topped with a decorative glass stopper, Tristan Auer has restored to its former glory the iconic perfume, created by the Father of Modern Perfumery in 1921.
This olfactive masterpiece pays tribute to its visionary creator whose family crest features a phoenix, a unique bird with the incredible power of being able to rise from the ashes.
THE EXTRAIT DE PARFUM
The original formula of Spoturno 1921 comes from the modern perfumery founding father’s archives of olfactory creations, of which Véronique Coty is the heir.
A subtle fragrance, the visionary creator and aesthete found the perfect balance of powdery, floral and citrus notes highlighted by the traditional animalic infusions of the era.
Its composition has been adapted and sublimated according to modern material considerations and reglementations by the House Parfum Cosmetic World France, under the remarkable direction of Patrice Blaizot.
THE BOTTLE & STOPPER
A crystal bottle with square cross-section – WALTERSPERGER – the interior body in the form of a cubic column with a protruding carnette, its polished glass stopper with an inlaid blooming lily made of white glass created by ADRIAN COLIN, and a gold embossed label.
Numbered : 00/20 13,5 cm x 3,9 cm x 3,9 cm
The accomplishment of this masterpiece would not have seen the light of day…
