Essenza del Tempo represents an allusion aimed at Trussardi’s tradition in leather craftsmanship. This fragrance arrived on the market in 2008 as a shared floral woody musk and was developed by perfumer Sophie Labbe. As suggested by the name, Essenza del Tempo is dedicated to a commodity that represents a luxury for some people: the inexorable time. And the other source of inspiration for this creation is represented by the “slow movement”, which is a characteristic of Italy and implies the concepts of slow cities and slow food.
I sampled Essenza del Tempo as soon as I could, because I was curious and I liked what I read in the press release. Applied on my wrist, the fragrance behaved quite interesting, with top noted of ginger, carrot seed, amber and bergamot. The note of amber present in here is innovative, followed by the unmistakable aroma of iris, which occupies fully the mid development. In the end, the structure dries down to a calm and quiet base, composes of cedar, balsamic vinegar and coffee accords.
The bottle that encloses Essenza del Tempo was designed by Thierry de Baschmakoff and comes adorned with a leather strap, an obvious reference to the tradition of Trussardi in manufacturing leather goods. With this scent, the Italian fashion house represented by a greyhound logo marks the debut in the unisex fragrances category, an event done with style and innovation. Overall, Essenza del Tempo is a classic fragrance, appropriate for any period of the day and for the spring and summer period of the year.
