Launched originally in 1981 by the Italian fashion house, Missoni was re-launched - unchanged!- in 2006. What a relief! This is a fabulous floral chypre by Maurice Roucel, who also did Tocade from Rochas.

Missoni's florals are wrapped in tart blackcurrent, so the sweetness is always contained. The mossy base has an uncannily complex drydown that is bewitching. Just when you think it’s done, the olfactory tape in this eau de parfum re-winds and the whole thing plays again, but with interesting changes to the script. Amazing!

The bottle is unique, too - designed by Pierre Dinand.

Notes: blackcurrant, violet, iris, lily of the valley, rose, jasmine, patchouli, oak moss and sandalwood.
