“The fragrance was developed by Marie Salamagne, at Firmenich. It is composed of Iris Absolute and a precisely calibrated accord of different musks. The Firabs iris, chosen for Nacre, is a very rare quality. It combines the rich, creamy facet of iris, with a powdery, almost talc-like note. Mother-of-Pearl is a semi-precious stone produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer. A sign of luxury and elegance, it was used in marquetry in the 19th century to adorn daily objects of the Haute Bourgeoisie.
The Mother-of-Pearl used on the Privé Nacre bottle comes from New Zealand oysters. Very thin films (around 3/10 of a millimeter) are extracted from the shells and glued on a plate that is then lacquered. Each Mother-of-Pearl film is different which makes every plate unique.
Each of the 1,000 pieces of Nacre is then numbered, on the bottle and the box, in order to give a last touch of exclusivity to this already very singular fragrance.”
Giorgio Armani Privé La Femme Nacre is available in 100 ml for £500 ($785 USD).
