Conceived in 1989 as an ‘experimental laboratory’, Atelier Versace focuses on innovation and research in design, materials and technology. The entire haute couture collection is created in Versace’s Milanese Atelier, starting from the aesthetic research and visionary design, all the way through hundreds of hours of meticulous workmanship by hand. Atelier has always represented a celebration of the origins for Versace, a reminder of Gianni and Donatella’s mother, a dressmaker who passed on the family’s sartorial traditions from her studio. The relentless pursuit of the highest quality materials and craftsmanship has been translated into the creation of a line of six exclusive and luxurious fragrances bearing the Atelier Versace name. They embody the Atelier’s absolute dedication to excellence, encompassing a studious approach to exceptional quality components, innovative techniques, hand-craftsmanship and the distinct Atelier Versace aesthetic. Evoking the sartorial savoir-faire of the Atelier, the perfumes are kept in entirely hand-made packaging. The lighter, fresher fragrances are stored in clear, transparent glassware, while the more intense scents boast sleek black bottles. Created by an innovative twisting technique, the glass is enriched with the name of the fragrance written in a gold tone. Hand-crafted metal caps boast a three-dimensional Medusa motif. Sculptural bottles are packed into paper boxes embellished by a gold-tone Greek Key border painted by hand. The boxes reveal a mirror that feature the Atelier Versace logo painted in a gold tone. Éclat de Rose was created by pioneering perfumer Nathalie Lorson, one of the first women to enter the perfumery field. Her goal is to create fragrances that resonate with both simplicity and high quality. Éclat de Rose starts out with Moroccan rose centifolia at the top, whose delicate flowers are hand-picked during the early hours of the morning and then rapidly processed. A heart of cashmere wood is followed by a dry-down of helvetolide and ambrox, a signature note that reveals facets of amber, incense, wood, tobacco and musk, which rounds out this elegant Floral eau de parfum.
