This week, a courier brought me a great delivery from Giorgio Armani: The new duo of highly exclusive fragrances called Vert Malachite and Rouge Malachite which are part of La Collection de Terres Précieuses (Precious Lands) by Armani/Privé.
Inspired by Mister Armani’s travels, this launch is a tribute to Russia, and the malachite, which is an iconic semi-precious stone in the country’s culture of luxury.
Most of the Armani/Privé fragrances are a tribute to the haute couture collections. The new launch is inspired by Mister Armani’s Haute Couture F/W 2015 collection «Shocking» which was an exploration of bejeweled tones taking inspiration from the rich colors of semi-precious stones such as malachite, amethyst, lapis-lazuli and more.
Here are the two new floral oriental compositions in the iconic beautifully designed bottles:
Armani/Privé Rouge Malachite
A floriental fragrance for women and men featuring tuberose, woodsy notes and amber.
Armani/Privé Vert Malachite
A woody aromatic fragrance for women and men featuring lily, green and woodsy notes.
The new fragrance duo will be available in Switzerland from Mid February 2016 (get yourself on the list) for CHF 305 (100ml) each at Jelmoli, Manor Geneva & Lugano, Globus Zurich, Genva, Lausanne, Bern & Glatt, and at Amavita (St. Moritz), Artho (Meilen), Drogerie von Gruenigen (Gstaad), Hyazinth (Basel & Luzern), Osswald (Zug), Osswald (Zürich) und Spiess (Bern).
