L'Attesa by Masque Milano is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women and men. L'Attesa was launched in 2016. The nose behind this fragrance is Luca Maffei. Top notes are Champagne, Bergamot and Neroli; middle notes are iris, Orris Root, Ylang-Ylang and Tuberose; base notes are Leather, Oakmoss and Sandalwood.
A celebration of the one of the most luxurious materials in the perfume world, L'Attesa explores iris and its many facets with an opulence that blew us away. Using three types of expensive iris, the star note is as creamy as buttered suede, and as plush as thick, silvered velvet, but also immensely floral in a way that is quite remarkable.
L'Attesa opens with buttery iris drenched in sparkling champagne that bears an original, inventive touch of yeast before the fragrance transitions into a sophisticated, clean, green floral that is enveloped with refreshingly crisp bergamot, green neroli, and a plush, mossy duet of oakmoss and tuberose. In its heart phase, the voluptuously creamy, floral iris is partnered with genuine Mysore sandalwood, then with supple, smoky leather in a breathtakingly sophisticated, unisex blend that lasts for hours before finally finishing as clean floral softness. One of the best iris fragrances to come out in years.
