Killing Time: Vogue Italia 2011 Lucia Giaconi
Sometimes life gets so complex. There are too many things to do and not enough time to do them. Your smartphone, tablet and kindle stop working all at once. People you love struggle. You struggle. Your mind is racing and you long for simple solace. A good book. A walk on the beach. Meeting an old friend in real time. Eau d’Italie’s Morn to Dusk, which is one ot the most comforting scents I have smelled this year.
Creative Directors Sebastian Alverez Murano and his wife Marina Sersale chose Annick Ménardo, who has a voluptious and rich olfactive signature, as the first female perfumer for Morn To Dusk, their 11th fragrance.

With Morn to Dusk, Ms. Ménardo brings us “the Italian way to Vanilla: simply irresistible.”

Morn to Dusk starts with a bouquet of muguet, light as air and giddy with happiness, and then a silky smooth and sweet vanilla moves front and center. A hint of heliotrope brings a slight gourmand quality, like rich vanilla gelato. Gently, Morn to Dusk matures into a deep, woody vanilla with just a hint of powder beneath. It is at the drydown one feels bathed in a healing gold light. You will find some comfort here
Notes: Bergamot, Lily of the Valley, Bourbon Vanilla, Cedarwood, Musk

Writer’s Note: I had the misfortune of being involved in a car accident the day I was wearing Morn to Dusk . During what was a very stressful time that left me feeling frazzled, I found myself repeatedly lifting my wrist to my nose and breathing deep.
