The word 'Posì' means magic potion and/or poison in ancient Greek. The word was used not only for a magic potion, but also to describe the power of the potion itself, for Posi was the most that could make a man fall without hope of escape.
Convincing and beautiful, just like its bottle, this new creation of the V Canto line is inspired by the seduction and alchemy of Lucretia Borgia. The bottle is hand-covered with 24-carat gold leaf. Each bottle is in fact unique and non-reproducible and a true masterpiece of Italian decorative art, which dates back to the Renaissance. In this iconic creation of the Lucretia collection, art is embodied in the flacon while the poison transforms into a fragrance that is a wonder and grandeur. A creation inspired by the hypnotic seduction... and unconquerable power of timeless beauty, paying homage to the irresistibly bewitching and beautiful yet deadly spirit of Lucretia Borgia. And like her potions, this fragrance will enchant with inescapable seduction when worn with regal, fatal style.
The fragrance opens with the hypnotic softness of the purest extract of the Bulgarian rose, in which the essence of a thousand petals is distilled into a single drop of precious oil. This priceless essence blends with Sicilian saffron, accompanied by the effervescence of citrus fruits, with predominant notes of Sorrento lemon and Calabrian bergamot. This seductive and hypnotic top is carried by a warm, enveloping middle that gives an intense and generous power to the creation, with the freshness of Bourbon geranium and the sumptuous delicacy of Polynesian Ylang Ylang masterfully blended with the aphrodisiac effect of precious ambergris, underlined by the power of cypriol. The entire opus is supported by a richly structured and complex base with an extraordinary persistence and a truly unique hypnotic power. This base consists of a sensory journey through highly prized woods, with predominant Italian walnut complemented by the oak of Lucretia Borgia's beloved forests and Tuscan oak. These woody notes are combined with oak moss and musk, which together with the precious, constant urge of sandalwood and red patchouli underline the seductive power of the entire creation.
