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.
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.
