Made to Measure Pour Homme will hit the the stores in autumn. It’s the male counterpart to Gucci Premiere (2012) for women. The press release is full of verbal embellishments and focuses on the luxury details, dominant names and so on... But no perfumer’s name is mentioned. How can that be? And why? It seems that our attention is meant to be deflected. The brand’s DNA is described extensively and the focus is on the house's history (dating back to the 1920s), the concept for the design of the bottle and its stopper, the packaging, the advertising campaign, the target audience and the importance of the gentlemen's designer clothes collection. Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini seems to have a hard time expressing it in simple words. Listen, here we go again!
Penhaligon’s presents an olfactory ballet, Iris Prima, by maestro Alberto Morillas. The spirit of the dance, bottled in a classical Penhaligon’s bottle, was created with the help of English National ballet soloists Lauretta Summerscales and Nathan Young, together with other dancers who helped Alberto catch the atmosphere of the theater, the scent of its mood, its passion and melancholy: the scent that can describe both hard work at the barre and a weightless pas that covers the stage like beautiful lace: the scent of costume fabrics and heavy curtains.

Every detail has its function, there is nothing unnecessary or redundant. It's a sleek, clean and timeless house with no pretension to be cutting edge whatsoever. Just a perfect home.
