Giulietta Masina was a fantastic Italian actress and the great love of legendary Film Director Frederico Fellini. She starred in 'La Strada' in 1954 for which she won Best Actress at Cannes and the film, inspired by the actresses 'humanity' according to her husband, won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in that year. 'Giulietta' was a woman of charm and charisma and her acting has a natural, nuanced quality that is reflected in Tocca's perfume. The innocence of lily of the valley is teamed with the natural beauty of Bulgarian roses and these sweet florals are grounded by a base of cedarwood that suggests a measured and serious facet to a charming personality. Although inspired by passionate romance, this is the scent of a vital and sophisticated woman of complex character.
Key notes: Bulgarian Rose, Lily of the Valley, Cedarwood
Tocca means 'touch' in Italian and the delightful bottle, based on an antique cognac decanter, to the exquisite embossed metal caps which are, quite frankly, the best in the business, is a masterclass in how to get it right. The scents themselves were my go-to gift for family and friends and even today, some 15 years after unwrapping their scent, my nearest and dearest often ask me where they can find what became their favourite fragrance. This is the mark of a great perfume and I am delighted that we have secured the collection for Roullier White this Spring!
