Advertorial: New Porsche fragrance

2010-05-04 08:02
After the successful launch of its first men’s fragrance line “The Essence”, in 2009, Porsche Design introduces its new fragrance ”The Essence Intense”. “The Essence Intense,” is a new orchestration, sensual and sophisticated, of The Essence. The tonic freshness that defines the initial scent has been kept. In contrast, its aromatic and woody facets have been intensified and “warmed” with added notes, which affirm its personality and provide a longer-lasting scent.

A reinterpretation of The Essence, intensified by the richness of woody-amber harmonies.
A perfume of the “Fresh-aromatic-amber” type, it gives a first impression of invigorating freshness, which is the common characteristic of the “Essence” family; a mix of myrtle, juniper berry and bitter mandarin. Next, the fragrance opens to the intense and virile notes of Siberian pine and black pepper, which contrast with the spicy mildness of cinnamon from Ceylon. Finally, Haitian vetiver and amber give the creation its strength and sensuality.

A perfume of contrasts, rich and intense, created by Anne Flipo, a Perfumer from IFF (International Flavours & Fragrances).

A bottle that is all elegance, contrast and intensity.
The bottle of “The Essence” has been designed by Porsche Design Studio. For this new fragrance, it has been recreated entirely in black to express its strong character. Its imposing black glass façade is matte, restrained and elegant. The satiny black, brushed-aluminum frames the bottle, providing a contrast of effects and materials. Porsche Design thus remains true to its distinctive design and once again puts its faith in the use of challenging materials. The shape of the bottle refers closely to its function. It has neither a lid nor an traditional bottle top.

Porsche Design is a luxury brand that designs and develops products inspired by advanced technology and was created in 1972 by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche. Since then, it has created timeless products for men that combine quality and beautiful materials with practicality and restrained design. These include classic accessories, a fashion and sportswear collection, electronic items and a perfume line. These products are designed by the Porsche Design Studio based at Zell am See (in Austria) and distributed throughout the world in brand boutiques, department stores, luxury department stores and exclusive travel retail sales outlets.
