The real olfactory equivalent of the House’s signature style, Royal Collection of Fragrances by Luigi Borrelli symbolizes, after Fabio Borrelli, “universal moments in a man’s life which he fills with sense and emotions” that are reflected in precious, pointedly masculine fragrances COTTON, VICUÑA WOOL and CASHMERE. Perfumers’ expertise turned eponymous fabrics into aromatic symbols: COTTON incarnates a new beginning, VICUÑA WOOL refers to a brilliant celebration, and CASHMERE brings out the idea of respect for power. Bergamot is the ingredient that marks the whole collection being a reference for traditional Eaux de Cologne and creating bright and uniquely Italian character.

Considering the collection’s design the brand also follows “masculine” approach: heavy transparent glass bottles are crowned with oily-shining metal stoppers with sharp edges and brand logo engraved. Thick dark-blue outer package originally closes with string and button, copying the style of Luigi Borrelli’s tie packaging that is an accessory for real gentlemen. Strings are painted in different colours according to perfume. Cashmere is a real miracle of the fabric industry, – precious and noble fabric that arrived in Europe from Asia. Italy is famous for the most quality cashmere wool handling and Luigi Borrelli House isn’t an exception. All-purposeness of the fabric as well as its functional and aesthetic characteristics made cashmere clothes popular and appreciated all over the world.

CASHMERE is an aromatic ode that celebrates a contrast between seeming subtlety and actual durability of cashmere. The perfumer created the whole composition based on a contrast and interaction between transparent musky phase of the fragrance and its dark, woody-resinous side. Main accord is built around the multifaceted labdanum note that possesses balmy, alcohol, ambery and animalic shades. It “turns” to cashmere with the help of spicy, woody and musky-powdery embrace – like Europe and Asia are melting in this scent. After brisk bergamot start there are black pepper and incense that array labdanum with semi-transparent smoky shawl, watering down metal clink and spicy cloves’ hot breath in the background. Together with spicy-balmy accord there is a rich woody theme developing in CASHMERE fragrance – creamy cedar, smoky-flowery guaiacwood and soft vetiver are singing in a choir of deep voices. Joining like puzzle pieces, fragrant accords create a gentle whisper changing into powerful and rich voice. CASHMERE is complex but amazingly harmonious perfume where opposite features are combined like in cashmere.
