The collection includes:
Inspired by PRE-RACE moments and the drivers' COURAGE
A homage to the brave drivers who pioneered F1, the risk-takers with nerves of steel who put their lives on the line. Precious Mettle is a fresh, intense, woody fragrance with a metallic twist that drives the sense of courageousness. An opening accord of bracing citrus, crystallised with freshness – with the silvery, metallic quality of pink pepper and elemi. The mineral warmth of ambroxan creates a weightless body, enriched with the daring woody character of akigalawood.
THE FIRST TURN of the race where the PERFORMANCE is fierce
Capturing the scent that hangs in the air during a Formula 1 Grand Prix race, Turn 1 honours to the performance, stamina and determination of powering through the first turn, experiencing the force of the engine and emotional tension. An avantgarde composition, with inimitable accords of burning rubber and rain on salty asphalt. A vibrant top note of pink pepper and mandarin races towards deep black patchouli and leather.
The focus and PASSION to pass your competitor at HIGH SPEED
Inspired by the rush and focus experienced when overtaking on demanding corners, Overtake 320 is a warm and spicy composition that races with a fiery blend of cinnamon and bergamot. A warm and energetic contrast of metal pepper and tonka bean, fused with a surprising take on iris to bring an innovative, dynamic element that makes this classic amber entirely new. Spices and dark caramelised woods intensify the passion.
THE FINAL STRETCH, victory within grasp, with FEARLESSNESS and determination
Neeeum White is a tribute to the fearlessness of our F1 heroes as they reach the final straight. A confident fragrance with a daring cocktail of spices, contrasting hot black pepper with the coolness of juniper. In the heart, the depth of narcissus is tempered by the soft, mineral quality of orris, seamlessly transition to a rich base featuring a fusion of sleek leather and golden Tonkalactone. An audacious re-interpretation of the fougère accord.
VICTORY: the celebration on the podium in front of the World
Inspired by the glow of victory after an intense race, celebrated by the whole team who made winning possible. The joy of celebration captured within a vibrant and energetic scent built around a champagne accord, dry amber and woods. An effervescent opening of citrus notes is energised by the electric zing of timut pepper, leading to luminous and fresh geranium, lightened by the violet leaf and contrasted by the rich facets of sandalwood and ambrocenide.
