HOW IT WEARS
21 is an Eau De Parfum so it should give the wearer around 6 – 8 hours of longevity on the skin….and then some. This fragrance is deliciously gourmand. At first it’s potent notes of spice and woods may surprise, but the Warm Milk, Vanilla and Orange Blossom eventually smooth and soothe down for a deep, creamy, much more balanced wear. A spicy yet soothing concoction, even into the end stages of it’s wear.
Like someone spiked your warm milk, but you ain’t anywhere near mad about it. In fact, now you’ve had a taste, you just want more. A potent and gourmand elixir. Not for the faint of palate or heart. I’ll have another sip/spritz, please… Who cares whether it’s good for me?!
ABOUT THE BRAND
Founded in 1986 by Capasa brothers Ennio and Carlo, the Costume National fashion label emerged as a fusion between Japanese and Italian cultures. Learning his craft in Japan, Ennio began the fashion in his home country of Italy (based in Milan). The Costume National line is based on the history, craftsmanship and raw materials from both cultures. Their aesthetic extends to their iconic fragrance line – Minimal, Chic and Rock’n’Roll.
