411 Intenso by Giovanna Antonelli. This eau de parfum was inspired by the Palais-Royal, a landmark of Parisian life, “a little” suranne, where still float the spirits of Molière, Colette, Cocteau and yet violently contemporary still float … La Comédie Française, the romantic gardens and the shops of yesterday and today sheltered under arcades in row. It is one of the most charming corners of the city of light, naturally chic, without ostentation.
“Giovanna reminded me of a woman in love with beauty, feminine, a little theatrical, who likes beautiful classical things and appropriates them by modernizing them. In my opinion, his perfume must have been a floral cyprus.”
