New men's fragrance from Trussardi : Riflesso

16th August, 2017

Riflesso, the new men’s fragrance by Trussardi, is said by the brand to be “an exploration of uncharted territory”.

The fragrance represents a path for discovering the contemporary world through the heritage of the brand.Designed for a man who never rests on his laurels, he transforms movement and speed into positive energy and attitude, always steering his life in the direction he chooses. Trussardi Riflesso captures the soul of a man who values modernity, tradition, family, and quality.

The woody oriental fragrance has been created for Trussardi by perfumer Véronique Nyberg. Notes for the scent include Bergamot, Pink Grapefruit and Green Apple in the head; a heart of Geranium, Violet Leaves and Lavender; and the fragrance is rounded off, with a base of Italian Leather, Vetiver Essence and Tonka Bean.

Award-winning architect and designer, Carlo Colombo, worked closely with Gaia Trussardi to create the bottle. The ribbed surface of the glass is inspired by the radiator grill of a car, and the cap is reminiscent of a steering wheel.

The result is an iconic bottle with a vintage yet modern feel: a bottle that stimulates a visual memory, and speeds towards new classicism.

The advertising campaign features model André Hamann, who photographed by Mark Segal at the gate of a villa on the Ligurian coast where the character he plays spent his childhood and adolescence: “It is not just a place from his childhood but a symbol of the future. While the villa and the iron gates represent the past, the MV Agusta Brutale 800 motorcycle is the accessory that represents his present, signifying speed and confidence.”

Trussardi Riflesso is available as 30ml, 50ml and 100ml Eau de Toilette.

In the UK, the fragrance is available from 20 August 2017 exclusively at Debenhams – Nationwide from 10th September 2017

        I hope Riflesso is one up on Trussardi's re-release of Uomo. The latter was a shameful attempt to modernize a beautiful ballsy leather icon from the 80s and it didn't work very well.

        The listed notes remind me of Givenchy's Gentlemen Only, which is not promising. On the positive side, I love the retro-looking bottle. It reminds me of a more rugged version of Tom Ford's For Men and For Men Extreme. I'm still struggling with the stereotypical approach to making men's fragrances' bottle designs after cars, engines, bullets and other things considered manly. As if one is less of a man for wearing a scent that comes in a flower-shaped bottle.
