There’s something lively and cheerful that catches you at the first taste of a refined fragrance for men like Eau de Toilette Ponte di Rialto, and already you want to wear it! This depends on his top notes of citrus fruits, the Mediterranean ones.
Light notes, because an Eau de Toilette like this is meant to be worn by a man who wants to give himself a decisive but not intrusive picture, and who wants to be delicate but not to go unnoticed. This type of fragrance is characterized by a lower concentration of essential oils, for example, than a perfume, in order to be pleasant but slightly reserved, considerate of the space (and smell) of others.
“It’s not easy to compose a suitable perfume for a man, the kind of man, I mean, that expresses an elegant but not flashy style, that stands out but not flaunts” says Sandro De Vanna. Your customer-type, Sandro? “Actually, yes, it’s the ideal-customer of our brand since the time of my father!”
So, Sandro modulated a skillful composition that, starting with the citrus notes, expresses that freshness that tempts you, after spraying the perfume on your skin, to face a working day with enthusiasm and vitality.
Then, however, these fresh and vibrant top notes give way to other more enveloping notes, the middle notes, the olfactive family of wood, to give more structure to the bubbly harmony released from citrus fruits; it’s something reassuring and lasting, that in a man can match the reliability, the sense of confidence inspired by a constant but not predictable behaviour.
But, the main tone, as the tones of a string quartet, is given by the musky base notes that contribute to harmony with a softer and captivating undertone, that accords with an elegant personality, serenely decided, and – why not? – delicately sensual.
For a man who consciously wants to be, not to look!
