While every Bortnikoff fragrance is surely a symphony- a masterful blending of the best ingredients in the world to produce something more than the sum of its parts- you might be initially surprised that Symphonie de Neroli is the one that earned the symphonie right in the title. After all, this is arguably Bortnikoff’s most focused, uncomplicated-feeling scent so far, a bright, cheerful, naturalistic celebration of perfume’s most beloved white floral. But one glance at the impressive notes list, and it’s plain to see that this seemingly simple soliflore is as complex a creation as any- with each exquisite ingredient carefully selected to enhance the beauty of neroli in full. Bright, dynamic citrus gives intense freshness, while rich jasmine sambac supplements neroli’s lush, romantic tones. Exceptional Javan and Indian vetiver alongside Virginian cedarwood coax out the woodsy and spicy elements, joining a balsam-infused oud to create a warm, glowing base that feels entirely in the spirit of neroli. Fresh, lush, spicy, romantic, rich, warm? Finally, a neroli scent that truly lets you have it all.
