With its woody and oriental notes of Bergamot, Pink Grapefruit and Inexperienced Apple, Trussardi Riflesso tells the story of a person trying to break away from the menace of societal cogs. The marketing campaign video cleverly juxtaposes a working man immersed within the anodyne world of cyber-connectivity with the liberty of easy values, driving, driving, sunsets. It jogged my memory of a saying, and you may forgive me for being a trite 80’s-pastiche by quoting Ferris Beuller; ‘Life strikes fairly quick. If you happen to do not cease and go searching infrequently, you might miss it’.
Life is just not a contest, however an expression of self-confidence, which is proven by way of notes of Geranium, Violet Leaves and Lavender, earlier than making a nod to custom with olfactive hints of Italian Leather-based, Vetiver and Tonka Bean.
