Shockingly violent, sweeping and modern when it premiered, Puccini’s Tosca was a true spectacle, drawing heated and mixed critical reaction- and the absolute adoration of the public, who flocked to its every sold-out performance. Having already been transformed into an Italian-language opera from a French-language play, Tosca’s further transformation into a perfume with cross-border influence seems all too appropriate, and so it may come as no surprise that it’s a crowd-pleasing success- a colorful, broadly painted grand-dame floral mixing freshness and lusciousness, bright herbal tones and smooth vanilla creaminess, for a truly romantic work of art. Many fragrances claim to be operatic, but Tosca, with its crisp and green citrus opening, herbaceous floral heart, and rich drydown, really does feel like a scent in three distinct, yet connected, acts, guiding us on an ever-moving emotional journey that twists, turns, and ultimately uplifts the spirit.
