I’ve been exploring new fragrances for a while now but feel a little nervous to fully commit to full bottle of a new perfume. The TOCCA collection at Etiket recently caught my eye. I’m not sure if it was the beautiful packaging or the Old World inspired bottles, but I found myself very drawn to all 6 of the TOCCA scents. Before investing in a full sized bottle, I decided to try 3 different eau de parfum from the Viaggio Collection. This set includes Colette, Bianca and Giulietta – 3 very flirty and feminine fragrances.
Colette is named after a Parisian novelist and performer who whose works centered around explicit themes. Her novels caused controversy when they were first published in the early 1900s, but her personal escapades – she was married three times and romantically involved with women – are the reason for her scandalous legacy. With key notes of Vanilla, Sandalwood, Musk and Incense, this perfume is mystifying and I prefer it as an evening scent. Colette captures the mysterious essence of a woman. Let her intrigue draw you in…
Bianca is a very light and floral scent. It is inspired by tea-time in Italy and reminds me of high tea at the Royal York. Intoxicatingly fresh, clean and sparkling, Bianca personifies la dolce vita with key notes of Green Tea, Rose, Sugar and Lemon. This is a brilliantly created, fresh scent that I love wearing during the day. A whisper of musk and sugar linger on the skin, capturing your imagination…
Giulietta is my favourite scent of the three. This sweet, refreshing scent is inspired by the love story of Italian film director Federico Fellini and his wife Giulietta Masina. The scent is reminiscent of the couple’s holidays spent on the island of Corsica where the two dreamt up the director’s visionary tales. With key notes of Green Apple, Pink Tulips, Vanilla Orchid and Amber, this delicate scent transports me to vacation mode on a remote island somewhere far away…
