Roberto Cavalli's exclusive new duo of fragrances
The Roberto Cavalli fashion house has created its unique signature style that simultaneously fills two contrasting aspirations: a taste for sophistication and refinement as well as a fondness for the daring and the unexpected.
The Roberto Cavalli lines of perfumes are flamboyant olfactory renditions of this philosophy. Conceived for confident men and women who embrace life fully and are never afraid to stand out, they perfectly illustrate the brand’s defining blend of elegance and boldness.
Deep Desire is an exclusive limited edition that brings together the Signature and Uomo lines. This duo of fragrances explores the most voluptuous facet of the Roberto Cavalli universe. It is a tribute to pure and vivid passion, to the magnetic attraction that bespeaks a total communion of the souls. Sensuous, fierce, indomitable, it is a raw and primal force no one can hope to resist.
Roberto Cavalli Deep Desire was entrusted to Louise Turner (Givaudan), the designer of the original signature perfume, and Christophe Raynaud (Firmenich), creator of the original Uomo fragrance.
Louise Turner’s mesmerizing oriental floral fragrance opens with a bang – a sizzling blend of pink peppercorn and mandarin that is bound to draw attention and ravish the senses. Deep Desire’s mandarin signature note combines fruity edibility with a zesty and piquant character. Combined with pink peppercorn, it perfectly symbolizes the complex and exciting nature of human passion.
The clever mix of spice and citrus fades into a generous white floral bouquet. Delicate petals of Sambac jasmine magnify the heart of orange blossom. The sweet and ultra-feminine flowers are facetted with rich cocoa beans that add a very appetizing quality. It is this voluptuous and sensual combination that engenders the extreme desirability of the fragrance.
The dry-down is even more generous and sophisticated. Blending roasted creamy Tonka beans, exotic patchouli and delicious vanilla, it creates a magnetic and somewhat mysterious trail.
Roberto Cavalli Deep Desire Uomo’s oriental spicy fragrance is a masterpiece, a true study in the art of seduction. Like its feminine counterpart, it opens with a riveting whiff of mandarin and pepper. But instead of pink peppercorn, master perfumer Christophe Raynaud used a more masculine pepper essence. It adds intensity to the spicy-citrusy contrast.
The heart of the perfume emphasizes the piquant overture through a very exotic blend of saffron and cinnamon. The scorching heat of the spicy mélange is slightly refreshed by tuberose whose sweet and floral counterpoint adds an unexpected romantic note. This olfactive oxymoron perfectly symbolizes the strong seductive power of the fragrance.
Powerful woody notes of golden cedarwood and cashmeran resound deeply in the dry-down, underscoring the potency and virility of the perfume.
A luxurious harmony
Roberto Cavalli Deep Desire’s bottles retain the aesthetics of their acclaimed forerunners. The feminine version displays soft and harmonious curves inspired by a sensual drop of glass. For this limited edition, it takes a rich burgundy hue that illustrates the sensual nature of the fragrance. The unmistakably masculine bottle of Deep Desire Uomo sports a warm chocolate shade. Both proudly exhibit Roberto Cavalli’s seal of excellence.
Faithful to Roberto Cavalli’s values, the matching boxes highlight the dual nature of the enclosed fragrances. The golden letters, embossed logo and high-quality materials reflect Roberto Cavalli’s sense of style and luxury. Simultaneously, the wild-animal motifs remind us that Deep Desire remains a raw and primal power.
The perfect couple
Esther Heesch and Félix Guesnouin, the faces of Roberto Cavalli Signature and Uomo, embody the Deep Desire couple. They possess the ideal combination of restrained elegance and unbridled passion, sophistication and glamour. Together, they form a perfect couple, ready to embrace their sensuality and share a hypnotic moment of passion.
