Has launched a perfume that pays tribute to Portugal
Having created bespoke perfumes for companies and individuals through L’Parfumeur for some time now, Lourenco Lucena has now launched himself onto the broader market with his own name.
Acqua di Portokali, the name given t0 the perfume, comes from the Greek word for orange.
Out of curiosity, this wonderful fruit originally comes from India, where it was known as narang, and arrived in Europe through China at the hands of Portuguese sailors in the 16th century.
For this reason, the orange is known in several languages by the name of the country that introduced it.
The top notes are marked with fat, juicy orange, very close to the real thing, tempered with citrusy scents of bergamot and lemon, which gain ground as they evolve says Lourenco. It finishes in whit the rose that replaces the vibrancy with sensuality and lasts for some time until the appeasing cedar wood takes care of the base notes.
Contained in a black bottle, in keeping with the sophistication and contemporary quality with which the perfumer endowed.
