An intoxicating olfactory aria

Energising, rejuvenating and magnetic, wearing this perfume will turn a woman into a real star: whether it's a party, a cocktail, or a special occasion, a heavenly aura of romantic charm and the fragrance of Osmanthus will pervade the imagination and the senses of those around her.

Castadiva vibrates like a heavenly voice; the pure, floral notes of Egyptian Jasmine, Neroli and Ylang-ylang rise towards a deep blue sky in a swirl of green and fruity notes, exploding up high with Frangipani and Osmanthus. This intoxicating olfactory vocalisation reaches its climax and maintains it with a warm oakmoss base, softened by ambergris, while white musk and vanilla seal this ensemble with a sensual yet reassuring harmony that is never excessive.

"Dabbing a hint of Casta Diva, by the Italian niche company Nobile 1942, onto the back of my wrist", explains how the scent was inspired not just by Bellini’s classic aria Casta Diva (from the opera Norma), but by the on-stage requirements of opera singers, who have long been banned from wearing perfume during performances because of the effect it might have on the voices of the entire cast. Casta Diva’s delicate accords of frangipani, Egyptian jasmine and white musk are designed to unfold gradually, so that not a hint of fragrance would be diffused during a performance—but by the time a diva arrived back in her dressing room to greet her admirers, her scent would be in full flow.
