To celebrate DFS Masters of Fragrances, Roberto Cavalli has designed the most exclusive version ever produced of one of its iconic fragrances, Roberto Cavalli Oud Edition. Limited to three pieces only, this work of art was inspired by the designer’s passion for gold.
Roberto Cavalli Gold Edition blends the noblest perfumery ingredients. It opens with a sweet and luminous top note of saffron that gives way to the woody and animal tones of sensual oud wood—the gold standard in Arabic perfumery. The fragrance closes on a deep root note of incense that adds a subtle veil of mystery.
To shelter such a vibrant and addictive elixir, an ultra-luxurious flask was designed. The bottle and the crown-shaped stopper, featuring Roberto Cavalli’s initials, were entirely covered with white gold leaf by skilled craftsmen. Around the neck of this exquisite container, a mosaic made of 138 artfully cut extra-white diamonds and 121 black diamonds was set by a master jeweller in homage to Roberto Cavalli’s emblematic animal patterns. Removable, the collar becomes a precious ring that can be worn on one’s finger or on a gold chain.
This unique treasure comes with a daring minaudière case conceived by the Italian designer himself. It is crafted from gold-plated brass printed with a croco effect. The eagle-shaped tassel asserts the flamboyant majesty of this most sophisticated Baroque piece.
The bottle and its minaudière are displayed in a visually striking lockable jewel case made of rich brown and leopard printed satin.
