In was the year 1967 when the Italian stylist and fashion designer, Nino Cerruti was founding in Paris something that will become renowned worldwide as Cerruti, the luxury goods fashion house. This launching was also marked by the inaugurating of the flagship store and headquarters at 3 Place de la Madeleine, in Paris as well. Inheriting the tradition from his grandfather, founder of the textile mill Lanificio Fratelli Cerruti, Nino Cerruti has developed a constant interest for expanding the business, hence the launch of Cerruti’s first scent, Nino Cerruti pour Homme, in 1978.
Image is an aromatic green fragrance for men, introduced by Cerruti in 1998 and developed by perfumer Ursula Wandel. This scent reminds me of Italian artisans, tradition and handicraft, being the type of green fragrance that reveals the heritage of Cerruti in the new millenium. The opening combines spices and fruits from pepper, plum, pear and banana leaf. The middle notes are reserved for white and green floral accords, with jasmine, fig leaf, cypress and guaiac wood. The perfume is fully and round, exhibiting a pleasant development on the skin. Finally, the base notes include musk, Tahitian Vetiver, cedar, patchouli combined with warm amber and sandalwood with an elegance that is characteristic for every Cerruti creation.
The bottle of Cerruti Image was designed by Thierry de Baschmakoff, being manufactured from frosted glass and with a silver spray stopper on top. The glass surface was used for engraving the 5 keywords of the fragrance: optimism, creativity, inspiration, vision and future.
