John-Paul's brief #3 (V.I.P)


08th January, 2000

My "create a fragrance" suggestion:

I would love to see a recreation of the discontinued 80s scent Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve.

Giorgio launched the scent with the theme: "Only one man in 10,000 will ever wear it." This is either a strong appeal to exclusivity, or the sign of an advertising agency with really low self-esteem.

Instantly memorable, and quite unlike any other fragrance my nose has ever encountered, Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (not to be confused with it's weaker brother Giorgio) is bold and refined, masculine and elegant.

The charming notes, as reported on Basenotes, are:

Top Notes

Bergamot, Aldehyde, Cardamom, Mandarin .

Middle Notes

Carnation, Cinnamon, Patchouli, Cedar, Sandal, Rose, Orris.

Base Notes

Vanilla, Moss, Musk, Tonka, Amber, Benzoin, Leather.
