This new scent from the Italian fashion house of Trussardi has definitely caught my attention, upon its introduction. Trussardi Donna 2011 is destined to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the fashion house with the same name and was launched concomitantly with its masculine counterpart, Trussardi Uomo 2011.
The new fragrance Trussardi Donna 2011 arrived on the market in the fall of 2011 as an oriental floral scent and was developed by perfumer Nathalie Lorson. The main accords of this scent are citrus and white floral. The top notes are abundant in fruits with Amalfi lemon, yuzu and watery fruits. Middle notes burst the freshness of white flowers, from lotus, African orange flower and jasmine. The base notes are mixing vanilla, Virginia cedar, patchouli and sandalwood.
I sampled Trussardi Donna 2011 on my wife’s wrist, during a visit to Sephora and I can say that it gave me the impression of a well done perfume, which embodies perfectly the passion for design and details that lead to the foundation of Trussardi House in 1911 by Dante Trussardo (initially as a factory for gloves).
The color of the bottle is white, a color which brings to mind the original Donna scent, but this time there’s a golden belt that surrounds the bottle all over; the stopper preserves the golden color which, in my opinion aims at transmitting an image of exclusivity and scarcity.
According to official declarations, “The new Trussardi Donna fragrance expresses modern feminity full of charisma, aura, radiant beauty, sensuality, allure and luxury. Trussardi Donna embodies the purity and passion for white”. If you are searching for a nice, clean perfume for your office, casual wear, consider Trussardi Donna 2011; however I should tell you that I consider this fragrance more suitable for a middle age woman that is fond of tradition and family values.
