I Love YY
I Love YY is a fragrance by Bogue Profumo. The notes of this fragrance are Ylang ylang, grapefruit, jasmine, rose, tonka, violet leaf, vanilla, benzoin, cedar
I LOVE YY is Antonio Gardoni’s dual declaration of love- first, to New York City, a place he fell over heels for from his very first visit. But that title isn’t a typo- YY, another object of his affection, is short for Ylang Ylang, that uniquely big, open, complex floral known for all the ways it smells unlike any other flower- sometimes grassy, sometimes gourmand, sometimes woodsy and resinous. When we asked Antonio to make us an exclusive fragrance to celebrate the opening of our first NYC boutique, he connected NY and YY, and the rest was a match made in heaven- or, at least, in the heart of Nolita.
And leave it to Antonio to construct a fragrance that truly captures the energy and beauty of NYC. I LOVE YY is a whirlwind of delightful chaos, with perfect touches of New York everywhere you look- cold, fizzy grapefruit captures a brisk spring morning run in Central Park. The titular ylang note is camphorous and lactonic, joining tonka, rose, and jasmine to feel sweet and rich, buzzing like a packed after-hours party. Cold, fizzy grapefruit captures a brisk spring morning run in Central Park. An edgy violet leaf recalls the flashbulbs and fluorescents of a hot new gallery opening in the Meatpacking District. And all of these notes intertwine in a glorious hum of energy, light, sweetness and intoxicating depth that can only represent one single, gigantic, overwhelming, wonderful city. We couldn’t be more excited that Antonio Gardoni and Bogue chose to join us in our inaugural NYC adventure. Won’t you come with us?
