Nobile 1942 - Ambra Nobile
…Oh woe is he who suffers endless, sleepless nights, waiting for the longed-for day to break,
and the sweeter and deeper that longing grows, the more promise tomorrow holds!...
How different it is, how contrary, for happy lovers in the wintry cold,
whose nights are bright and brief, while their day is long and dark!...
From “ Ambra” by Lorenzo the Magnificent, on the myth of Ombrone, who would stubbornly continue to love the wood nymph Ambra for ever.
Amber, symbol of irresistible and eternal, carnal and spiritual love. Its sensual, animalic fragrance is delicate at the same time. Its warm perfume intoxicates the senses with its sweet, elegant notes of leather and the sea.
AMBRA NOBILE evokes “nights for happy lovers are bright and brief” intoxicated by the aphrodisiac perfume of amber, combined with the warm, citrusy, resin notes of laudanum, the liquorice notes of Helichrysum, whose leaves shine in the sun like gold (“golden leaf”), the “manly” tobacco hints of the Tonka bean, and a slight, delicate sandalwood finish as the calm after the olfactory storm.
