A collaboration between creative director Natalia Outeda and Givaudan master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Frassai A Fuego Lento begins cloaked in dreamy white flowers that obscure an animal heart. It opens with a trio of equally dominant notes: a berryish tang of blackcurrant, a flush of orange blossom and sweet, vanillic hay. Flores-Roux is the perfumer who turned orange blossom around for me, and here I am reminded why: the flower combines rivulets of fresh cream, honey and pollen, but with a green undertone that keeps it from becoming cloying. That blackcurrant zing is delicious here, cutting into all that dairy sweetness and keeping the opening buoyant. These two notes are joined by flouve odorante, a yellow grass redolent of coumarin and benzoin, which marries facets of mown grass, wintergreen and hay. It’s like finding oneself in spring field next to an orange grove. Thanks to the generosity of Frassai, we have a 50 ml bottle of Frassai A Fuego Lento for one registered reader worldwide.
