Gattopardo was launched in 2017 and is the sixth fragrance from Antonio Allesandria. It is a gourmand oriental that features top notes of bergamot, fig and whiskey; middle notes of geranium and iris; and base notes of benzoin, hazelnut, almond, cocoa, beeswax, amber, patchouli, cedarwood and musk. It is an eau de parfum, edp.

In information from the media packet for the release of the fragrance it states: 

Gattopardo tries to portray the archetype Sicilian man with his strong bond to his motherland. He is tall with lots of ego and muscular features, which make him powerful, inclined to anger, yes, but in a controlled manner. His authoritarian manner commands respect yet his simple attitude towards family traditions bind him firmly to his roots. A loving caring person that oozes generosity and makes all around him feel welcome. A man with style and elegance having a rational mind that is able to create with an upmost spirit of freedom. However this “portrait” cannot exist without background. Sicily is a land of contradictions, a land of countless cultural stratifications, due to multiple dominations. Sicily changes very little despite time and the actions of its people. It’s a paradise for both sight and smell. A wild garden that is sometimes ravaged by the intense heat, but always having the power to smell beautiful throughout the year.  

Gattopardo made its first appearance at Pitti Fragranze in Florence and has only been released in Europe. It was picked as one of the best of 2017 in Scents and Discoveries on Bois de Jasmin:
Should your fantasy be a Sicilian ballroom instead of an evening garden, Antonio Alessandria’s Gattopardo may present the right key. Alessandria runs a cult perfume boutique in Catania, and his newest fragrance, Gattopardo, takes the theme of The Leopard, a novel written by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. Alessandria aimed to capture the scents and impressions of Sicily, a land that was occupied by many and conquered by few, and his composition is built on a series of contrasts. The green freshness of the opening is succeeded by the softness of iris, the bitterness of cocoa powder and the gourmand sweetness of hazelnuts. The amber and beeswax give a rich patina to the drydown that calls to mind baroque palaces, burning candles and the rustling of silks. A rival to Fleurs et Flammes, my other favorite from Alessandria’s collection.
