For Valentine's Day my Valentine surprised me with this indulgent Armani Prive Fragrance - Pivoine Suzhou. It instantly became my signature scent. Both succulent & refined, the Pivoine Suzhou is the perfect balance of notes the cultivate a sparkling aurora of peony & with hints of raspberry. Every time I pick up a bit of the fragrance I am reminiscent of a crisp glass of rosé overlooking the Amalfi Coast or drifting off in a sun bed in St. Tropez. It is amazing how a fragrance can transport you. Here is a little background on the story of this scent.
Giorgio Armani reveals an ode to the legendary gardens of Suzhou, China; a harmony of nature and to Chinese Elegance and Refinement. The city boasts over 200 gardens within its walls, demonstrating the delicate balance of water, earth, fire and air. The same meticulous care of the gardens echoes the same approach Giorgio Armani takes in the study and finish of each collection. Pivoine Suzhou features the peony—once too fragile to be distilled into an oil—carefully reconstructed with hints of bright green tangerine and a finished with a soft layer of amber notes, patchouli and musk.
Inspired by the gardens of beauty and harmony of the classic gardens in Suzhou, China and the beloved peony flower; the new Pivoine Suzhou captures the natural perfection of the peony—the voluptuous freshness of its fragrance, the luxuriant abundance of its petals and the soft sensuality of their touch—to create a bouquet of emotions, both luminous and intoxicating.
This & the complete Armani Prive Fragrance Collection are available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. Available for $270 for 100ml.
