Casamorati 1888 by Xerjoff is an Oriental Floral fragrance for women and men. 1888 was launched in 2013. Top notes are coriander, carnation, pepper and saffron; middle notes are rose, neroli and ylang-ylang; base notes are sandalwood, patchouli, amber and birch. The scent is spicy-oriental. So as the name suggests, the fragrance 1888 by Casamorati represents the entire collection of the Italian house. A heavenly composition that takes the wearer to a bygone era of elegance, classical grace and perfect sophistication.
At Parfumerie Trésor in Hong Kong I was introduced to “1888” by Casamorati. An intoxicating fragrance is in the best traditions of true French scents. Here is a complex, yet familiar scent on an intuitive level. This intoxicating bouquet is gently layered over a rich and creamy base of Mysore sandalwood, patchouli, amber, and rich leather notes from the Russian birch tree. The rose is beautifully framed and balanced.
A mention has to go to this beautiful bottle. The 1888’s silhouette is something to be admired, a striking body with a slight resemblance to a man’s torso in distinct burnt red. A regal frame embodying Casamorati’s inception year. An elegant gold cap that could resemble a Roman Helmet complemented with a golden tassel.
Overall, 1888 wonderfully retains the old world charm using the most noble and precious ingredients across the globe.
