1497 Lisboa - On 8 July 1497, a fleet commanded by Vasco da Gama set sail from Restelo in the direction of India. That morning in Lisbon, the air is filled with the typical scent of hot weather. The tears of the family members who remain mingle with floral aromas, but the departing fleet has the ambition to bring other smells on its return by establishing Portuguese trade in the Indian Ocean for the famous spices

Vasco da Gama successfully carried out "the task of sending to Portugal and Europe the pepper, cinnamon, ginger, saffron, nutmeg and cloves known as the gold of India, but deep down he wanted to return and tell King Manuel I about his achievement. The memory of that hot morning when he left the Portuguese capital was still very present and it was those aromas that he missed.

This departure of the Portuguese sailors for distant India was the inspiration for the new fragrance Lisboa 1497, a summery, floral scent, openly fresh and citrusy, in which the freshness of lemon, mixed with the soft, floral sweetness of linden and freesia, can be felt in the air of a flowery Lisbon in July.

Aroma:  opens with vibrant citrus notes of lemon, bergamot and mandarin, evolving into an aquatic floral heart in which notes of lime blossom and orange blossom are surrounded by other aquatic notes of sea and seaweed. At the base, notes of amber, cedar and white musk sustain the fragrance in memory and heart.
