Etro Rajasthan : New Perfume

Etro will add another travel inspired perfume to its collection this March. Rajasthan pays homage to India and includes notes of lemon blossom, damascus rose, pink pepper, labdanum, amber, and white musk.

“Rajasthan, the new fragrance by Etro suggests heightened nomadic and yearning femininity, the hypnotic dance of eternal desire, a wild gypsy poetry set in colorful jeweled Maharajaha’s cities which are eternal like the breathing of the earth and the energy of the desert. A poetic and seductive fragrance that suggests an impatient prophecy, the fresh aroma of a winter lemon flower combined with the sweetness of the strong damask rose and the languor of mimosa. The skilled sensuality of amber and white musk are enlivened by a strong pink pepper bite, which gradually gives way to the delicate notes of labdanum which then turn to the magnificence of sweet acacia. A fragrance that promises another summer enclosed in the yellow corollas which are as velvety as talc and as sweet as honey.”

  • maja: I adore paisley and that bottle is perfect! Can’t wait to try it…

    ps. A propos India, it’s minus 10 C° where I live today and Kenzo Jungle Elephant seemed to be the only choice. It’s gorgeous during freezing weather, making me so, so happy 🙂 February 11, 2013 at 8:49am Reply

    • maja: 10°C 😉 February 11, 2013 at 8:50am Reply

      • Daisy: Maja, that is a wonderful idea! It’s freezing and rainy in NYC. I think that I will pull out the Kenzo Jungle too 🙂 February 11, 2013 at 11:19am Reply

    • Victoria: It’s freezing here too. I might break out my Kenzo Jungle Elephant as well. 🙂 February 11, 2013 at 11:44am Reply

      • maja: Glad you both liked the idea. 🙂 Hope it works for you, too. Later I went for the spice overload and prepared myself masala chai. Another winner and amazing combination with the Jungle Elephant. February 11, 2013 at 12:36pm Reply

      • Daisy: Whoo hoo! It’s a Jungle Party 🙂 February 11, 2013 at 1:29pm Reply

        • Victoria: It is! I made some chai as well. 🙂 February 11, 2013 at 4:42pm Reply

  • rosarita: I like many Etro fragrances and this gorgeous bottle inspired an instant lemming! February 11, 2013 at 10:01am Reply

    • Victoria: I really love the paisley design! Can’t wait to see the bottle in real life. February 11, 2013 at 11:44am Reply

  • maggiecat: I’ve not tried any Etro scents yet, but this may be the one! It sounds lovely. February 11, 2013 at 11:18am Reply

    • Victoria: Messe de Minuit is my favorite Etro, but it’s more of an atmospheric scent. It smells like old books, incense and smoldering candles. February 11, 2013 at 11:45am Reply

  • Lainie: Wow, this sounds like my kind of scent. I hope it’s as beautiful as the “poetic and seductive” marketing, and the gorgeous packaging. I’ll hope for a review from you! February 11, 2013 at 11:47am Reply

    • Victoria: Keeping fingers crossed that it doesn’t disappoint! I would so love something unique from Etro. February 11, 2013 at 4:43pm Reply

  • Al Patel: Interesting notes. Rajasthan is state name in India and its famous for Royal Palaces so if you planning to go to India then try to visit Rajasthan. February 11, 2013 at 12:24pm Reply

    • Victoria: I have a photo album devoted to Jaipur, and some of the images are so striking. February 11, 2013 at 4:44pm Reply

  • Al Patel: Yes. Victoria.
    Many peoples are coming to see Taj Mahal and Jaipur, and Jaisalmer in India. Actually its not too far.

    Interesting part here -there is already fragrance name Jaipur and Jaisalmer are in the market and now state name Rajasthan. February 11, 2013 at 10:44pm Reply

  • Little Red: Sounds like worth trying. The bottle is definitely lovely. February 13, 2013 at 11:16pm Reply

    • Victoria: It looks really striking in that photo. February 14, 2013 at 10:17am Reply
