Recently it happens very often that I read on Facbook home page, newspapers and on the internet, reviews dedicated to designer Fausto Puglisi. Articles that present him as the new phenomenon of Italian fashion. Personally I do not find anything new in his collections. I look at Puglisi as a surrogate designer who lives in the shadow of glorious Gianni Versace.

In honest truth his stylistic identity does not exist. It exists only when people talk about him and comparison with the couturier is inevitable given the similarity of their clothing. Only this way we provide him with the license to show himself. On one hand his work would make more sense if he worked with Donatella, on the other a certain type of printing without memory could go back to school.

New Fragrances seem to want to attack the public. Some scents are really disruptive, engaging, are placed on a collision course in a time of rampant passivity and conformity. They innovate successfully the work of perfumerie, freeing it from most obvious and most traditional hierarchies of feeling, seeing, representing and telling. After the release in most concept stores around the world of Amazingreen, the experimental mixture based on mineral notes and gunpowder by Comme des Garçons, no less subversive and enthralling, comes the latest men’s fragrance by Viktor & Rolf.
Eau de Toilette Pour Homme Spicebomb by VIKTOR & ROLF
SPICEBOMB is an explosive concentration of pure manhood. This jus created by nose Olivier Polge is the meeting of spicy agreements tamed by an enveloping freshness. Chili, Saffron, Leather, Tobacco, Vetiver are combined with fresh notes of Bergamot, Grapefruit and Green Pepper. Encased in a bottle-shaped sculpture made of grenade worked like a diamond in perfect harmony with the bottle of Flowerbomb, the fragrance for women launched in 2005, is in the male edition, reinvented in a glass sculpture with regular facets finished with neutral colors of black, silver and gray. These new fragrances invade space with new agreements and conceptual design of rupture; they give a nice shake to public’s liability, to time’s equability, they reveal beauty, intensity and transience of things.

Poetic, hypnotic and smooth. New summer olfactory harmonies are precious and cosmopolitan distillates , born on the ancient routes of Middle East. They are formed from raw materials coming from Saudi Arabia, passing through ancient Persia, all the way to Indian cities of Marajà. Spicy floral arrangements tell nomad personality, geography of soul, breath of the earth, energy of the desert, shimmering palace’s gardens, crowded souks, majesty of Byzantine and Ottoman interiors. I’m like a hot desert wind, sultry, erotic, capable of keeping everyone awake and whispering rumors. They have the same color of summer sun liquid light. They are the promise of another summer.
