Soul is pure emotion. It is a unique scent that has been created in order to embody the essence and soul of Costume National. The warm fragrance takes shape around an iconic ingredient: pure Amber. Fusing with rich and decadent notes such as Leather, Oud and Vanilla to create a scent filled with a depth of character. Amber is great favourite of Costume National, it expresses freedom and absolute elegance. Warm, sensual and charismatic, Soul is based on the richness and rare quality of raw materials. The beautiful orange glass of the fragrance bottle embodies the rich and enticing warmth of this fragrance, and indeed, the soul of Costume National.
Top: Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Cardamom

HOW IT WEARS
Soul is an Eau De Parfum so it should give the wearer anywhere from 6 – 8 hours of longevity on the skin. Although it will probably give you 8 hours and then some. It’s deep, rich spice and resins blended smoothly with Leather, Vanilla and just a spritz of barely there Citrus giving it a moderate to strong projection that lasts all day and maybe even after a shower. A hearty and earthy concoction and wear, almost boozy in its richness.
Aptly named, this fragrance is indeed a soulful one. An old soul perhaps. Masculine and intense, sensual and spicy. Raw, moody, deep and warm are also adjectives one could use to describe Soul. The scent you imagine an artist or jazz musician might wear. You know the scene: a stiff drink…(on the rocks, of course) raw tobacco perhaps and a cosy leather booth, in the corner of a darkly lit club. Slightly sweet, but not too much, sensual and charismatic, strong but smooth. We simply love how this fragrance conjures up and captures the essence of all of the above.
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.
