I remember it was just a decade ago when I couldn't care less about fragrances and scents. In my younger years, I just felt there was no need to veil yourself with too much scent (that costs too much too!) as long as you shower religiously. But as I grew older and maybe, just maybe wiser, I've come to appreciate fragrances. I even see it as a fashion accessory -- like a train of a gown that leaves the last impression to your audience.

I've been collecting numerous bottles for years now, but I've been very picky. Elie Saab Le Parfum, Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle and Miss Dior Chérie have been on my top three lists and they haven't changed their ranks for three years now -- until I've received Narciso Rodriguez' Women's Perfume NARCISO last week.

I think this just outrank Miss Dior Chérie from my top 3 list. Lately, I've been drawn to stronger scents and have been vying away from sweeter ones. 

This new fragrance NARCISO eau de toilette represents a new chapter in the story of the alchemy of attraction and the art of seduction that begun with NARCISO EAU DE PARFUM. “Both NARCISO fragrances embrace the extremes of seduction, albeit in different ways. With the eau de toilette, the idea was to further explore the mercurial nature of attraction.” Narciso Rodriguez

While NARCISO eau de parfum interprets the art of attraction with a power that’s implicitly intriguing, the new eau de toilette NARCISO highlights the power of attraction with a more explicit sensuality that’s highly compelling: NARCISO eau de toilette lends a new urgency to the art of seduction. “The two fragrances convey the sense of duality so profound in femininity which is at the core of of all my work, whether fragrance or fashion.” Narciso Rodriguez

NARCISO starts off with bright top notes of white peony with bulgarian rose to compose a heady white floral bouquet to form its sensual heart. Enhanced by voluptuous woody accords of black and white cedars and elegant vetiver, this eau de toilette is hypnotizing!

NARCISO eau de toilette interprets a new facet of femininity with a vivid magnetism; capturing the ineffable nature of attraction precisely embodied by the hypnotizing new portrait of Raquel Zimmerman. 

NARCISO : Narciso Rodrigues Eau de Toilette is now available in leading department stores nationwide in these bottle sizes: 90 ml for P6,200, 50 ml for P4,600, and 30 ml for P3,300.
