Strictly Private by Baldessarini marks the ending of the partnership between this brand and Charles Schumann, and the introduction of German actor Werner Schreyer as the new face of Baldessarini. Due to the fact that I am a fan of Baldessarini fragrances, I was very anxious to sample their new creation, from the moment I read about the upcoming launch. While you’re about to read my conclusions, I’ll spare you the excitement and disclose the end: the impression is favorable.
Taking into account that the essence of Baldessarini brands is embodies the superior segment of fashion and perfection for the finest details, Strictly Private represents the brand’s positioning in perfumery scene to an upper class, dedicated to the playboys who choose luxury and quality above all. Strictly Private was introduced in January 2009 as an oriental spicy fragrance, reportedly inspired by the ‘audacious exclusive world of the Glitterati (wealthy or famous people) playboy’.
The smell that lingers in your memory subsequent to spraying Strictly Private on your kin is that of a gourmand cookie accent, due to the crème brulée accords in the base. Strictly Private opens with a spicy citrus accord of pink pepper mixed with bergamot, added on top of juniper and basil. Then, as the notes vanish, the replacement includes accords of vetiver, resin, Rose and patchouli. Finally, the dry down creates a powerful base of crème brulée, combined with sweet vanilla, warm amber and cedar.
This exclusive liquid is contained in a bottle that exhibits a masculine rectangular shape, decorated with a golden plate, which reminds of ‘the gold doorplates found on the door of luxury homes and private member’s club’. The video advertisement matches the luxurious world of high-class society, making an allusion to the limited availability of the scent. Even tough I considered in more than one occasion buying Strictly Private for my collection, this fragrance still remains on my “to buy” list.
