CoSTUME NATIONAL 21
bergamot, milk, orange blossoms, saffron, cumin, pepper, cashmere wood, royal jelly, moss, clary sage, patchouli, olibanum, amber, sandalwood, oudh wood, cedar, vetiver, labdanum, tonka bean, vanilla and musk
Created in honor of the 21st anniversary of Costume National, 21 pays homage to the luxurious simplicity that can be found in the hypermodern and timeless creations of this Italian fashion house. 21, an alluring blend of understatement and sensuality, captures 21 favorite scents of the designer Ennio Capasa. The intriguing list of notes features milk and orange blossom, saffron and cumin, royal jelly and oud, moss and vanilla. Creamy, dreamy, enveloping, 21 is an olfactory vision in white. The tender floral top notes dissolve into the soft spiciness of the heart, where saffron mixes with patchouli, oud and olibanum in an accord of astounding depth and opulence. The sweet darkness of the base notes of tonka bean, vanilla and musk is the very epitome of comfort. At once astonishingly sensual and beautifully tranquil, 21 is destined to become a new cult favorite.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
