Woman in Gold
A perfume as complex and dazzling as the woman who wears it.
Inspired by the 1907 portrait of leading Viennese art patron and taste-maker Adele Bloch-Bauer—the only woman Klimt painted twice—Woman in Gold is full of the same shimmering complexity, bewitching glamour, and intrigue. The notes conjure, in scent, the delicate gold leafing and play between light and shadow, for which the painting is celebrated.
Perfumer Calice Becker was inspired by the painting’s fascinating contrasts and complexities, which she describes as “texturized and brilliant, rich and voluptuous.”
“The unique top note unveils a sponge bergamot oil, a beautiful quality extracted by ancestral techniques,” says Becker. “Its zesty luminosity is the fragrant expression of this brightness. The petal-y rose heart depicts all of the facets of the rose. Finally, vanilla absolute’s unctuosity appears generously in the drydown, adorned by an exclusive patchouli molecule, the Akigalawood.”
