NARCISO by Narciso Rodriguez


A sophisticated statement, and an irresistible invitation. Rose and gardenia lend a feminine grace to vetiver and black and white cedars. At the core, notes of musc offer undeniable warmth and sensuality. Evoking mystery, attraction, and exquisite desire, NARCISO embodies the scent of seduction.

NARCISO opens with a strong white gardenia note with the tiniest sweetness of rose making for an exotic, clean, yet intoxicating floral bouquet, followed by a creamy, clean, and warm musk emerging and some spiciness, a peppery quality like the one you’ll notice in large lilies, when you hold them up to your nose really close. This hint of spiciness is building the bridge to the onset of the base of dry cedarwood and a little later, some slightly dark and inky vetiver.
NARCISO eau de parfum defines sensuality with elegance. Assertive woody notes meet tender white florals in a daring and so feminine duality. A warm heart of musc remains the emblematic signature of the scent. A captivating fragrance with a sensual and elegant trail.

With a campaign fronted by Raquel Zimmermann – “an extraordinary beauty,” he says – ‘Narciso’ is successfully one of the most elegant modern fragrances we’ve smelt in a while. Rightly so, Rodriguez reveals that he’s, “so proud of the fragrances because they are such a great reflection of everything that I hoped that my brand would be.” And for us, ‘Narciso’ mirrors a man who knows exactly how to make a women feel glorious.

“I want to create fragrances that make a woman feel good about herself too. […] When a woman feels sexy, mysterious and strong – no matter what’s she’s doing—it gives her a power that’s subliminal.” Narciso Rodriguez
