A shadow: something is there. She determines fate as she walks along the spice road. As she passes, there’s magic in the air, as warm as the hues of fruits that announce her coming. Her cloak weaves gold and velvets, and she has a delicate yet steadfast stride. Amused, she turns to look at the effect it has. Aristocratic weakness.
Ripe black cherries enveloped by fresh marzipan and fine bitterness of red orange’s zest. The heart is a delight: a creamy mix of white flowers and powdery cocoa notes; Duchessa’s sillage is warm, balsamic, intoxicating. Sweet as liquor. A “narcotic” one: cherries and sugar, the real obsession. The smell of a Gritti Woman, bold and decisive.

- The design of Gritti Privé takes inspiration from Italian nobility’s palaces: the bottles are dressed in velvet, a reference to the clothes of the Venetian doges, and crowned by 24-carat gold plated caps with Gritti dynasty emblem on the top.
- For each Gritti Privé extrait, the perfumer created unique twists of two distinctive accords to fuse them together, adding singular nuances and notes necessary for a perfect balance.
- The collection’s opulent packaging is an homage to the Gritti family’s jewelry cases: from the luxury velvet boxes to hard protective covers designed by Luca Gritti personally.
