TOCCA: Eau de Parfum Sampler and Perfumo Solido
Elegance is exemplified in the form of fragrance, courtesy of TOCCA (“touch”), the brand that has mastered the art of storytelling by way of scent. Inspired by historic figures from European history, some of which are named for the siren who served as their muse, TOCCA products are uniquely sophisticated.
Eau de Parfum Sampler
Those who know TOCCA love TOCCA, and often fall in love with one of TOCCA’s signature scents. I happen to be partial to Florence. Fear not those who are indecisive, as the Sampler offers a collection of seven, .05-ounce vials, each containing one of TOCCA’s distinct and beloved scents. The Sampler ($18) includes Cleopatra (a rich blend with floral scents accented by a rich, musky overtone), Stella (“flirtatious and fresh”), Florence (with Jasmine, Gardenia and Italian Bergamot highlights), Brigitte (Gingery and fruity, “playful and sensual”), Guilietta (sweet, inspired by the love story of Federico Fellini and Giulietta Masina), Bianca (meant to “personify la dolce vita”), and Colette (sweet yet musky). The Collection is housed in a delicately designed box that is not much bigger than one which houses jewels. Indeed, each scent is similarly as precious.
Solid perfumes have been sparing bottles of prized perfumes for some time. For those TSA-minded olfactory connoisseurs, TOCCA’s collection also includes such offerings ($30, 0.15 ounces). The newest addition to the collection is Colette, which TOCCA shares as being inspired by an intriguing Parisian novelist. Colette is comprised of Bergamot, Mandarin, Lemon, Juniper Berry, and Pink Peppercorn. And, as with all TOCCA products, solid perfumes are beautifully encased with the traditional brand logo and a seemingly royal, golden-etched design.
Whether in liquid or solid form, a bit of TOCCA offers a touch of instant European elegance and sophistication in an instant.
