Sigilli, the überniche Italian perfume line, produces some of my favourite scents and Claudiae is definitely one of them.

Perfumer Enrico Buccella dedicated Claudiae to his wife and what a glorious tribute it is.

It opens with green, pungent tomato leaf which is soon joined by a note of dry, nutty poppy. An unusual and enticing beginning that leads to a heart of rich, luxurious, lush rose. And just when you get those first rosy whiffs, galbanum appears, adding a complex green note that is evergreen, herbal, bitter, spicy and woody all at once and which perfectly complements the rose.

The rose and the galbanum shimmy side by side, perfect partners in perfect balance until they come to rest on a base of earthy patchouli and animalic musk sweetened slightly by Tonka bean. Here all the elements lose their individuality and evolve together into a deep, dense sensuous siren call that is irresistible.

There is nothing strange or weird about Claudiae. It is an elegant, beautifully crafted women’s fragrance - an olfactory dedication to the free-spirited, who think outside the perfume box.
