A brief interview with the perfumers on the creation of Chopard Millie Migilia.

The Fragrance

lowres-Mille-Miglia_Bottle-shotSeductive, sophisticated, this oriental fougère created by perfumers Olivier Polge and Bruno Jovanovic (IFF) boasts a self-assured character. Ready, Set, Go! The fragrance rushes forward with floral lavender notes refreshed by bergamot, while notes of Juniper berries come to accentuate the freshness.The first gear passed, and green notes of herbaceous and violet bring strength to the heart; a fresh, invigorating scent modernized by a leather and asphalt accord. As it speeds off, this heady contrast unfurls in an oriental base of amber, wood and coffee beans, leaving behind an intensely warm, addictive trail.



The Mille Miglia – famous vintage car race turned into legend over the years – was born in 1927 under the impetus of two young Italian, Brescia-born counts. The Mille Miglia is today one of the most highly anticipated events in Italy.Taking its inspiration from the race and watch collection, the House of Chopard is now opening a new olfactory chapter with a Mille Miglia fragrance for men.

1. How did you work with Chopard for this new fragrance?

After the initial brief we came to the Chopard team with a raw asphalt-violet accord, on which they immediately had a crush. Then the essential part of our work was to create and chiseled a sophisticated and refined fragrance from this raw accord, by adding relief, contrast and addiction. So we met several times along the development to adjust the work on the note.

2. How would you describe this fragrance in your own words?

This fragrance has a unique personality built around an original asphalt note with leathery inflexions and a strong contrast between aromatic fresh notes and addictive ambery notes. It offers a very masculine elegance. It is bold, sophisticated and seductive.

3. What makes this fragrance unique?

What makes the fragrance unique is its strong personality brought by the quality of the ingredients we used and the precision of its construction. The asphalt accord offers an original interpretation of masculinity and performance, and brings a distinctly powerful and leathery signature to the fragrance.
