New York is waiting. I arrived at the airport in Florence with a lot of luggage and some toys to make the journey less boring, computer, music…
The Captain of my airplane was waiting for me to let me know that a red light, one of the thousands on the instrument panel, warned of a problem with the pressurization.
Shit, this is all I need… I have to be in NYC tonight.
Tomorrow morning at eleven o’clock I have my first meeting with journalists and photographers.
“My dear Captain, tell me what is wrong and put yourself in my shoes. I must go!”
“We have to go to Milan where a mechanic will evaluate the problem”
I am telling you all of this to keep you in the picture! Later on I will let you know the result of the inspection. Don’t worry, if you care for me! (… I hope!)
We arrived in Milan, and were towed into a hangar. After a brief inspection they told us that the cold had created a small problem. Two hours of waiting, and then, finally, we took off!
First stop at Gander in Canada for refueling, my plane does not have sufficient range for a non-stop flight to NY, that sucks! I was finally able to close my eyes!
Take off again, next stop: NEW YORK. We will arrive very late, maybe after midnight.
We are finally in New York. We are crossing the long bridge that leads to the island of Manhattan. The vision of skyscrapers is really fascinating, especially when you get to New York for the first time.
Now I need to rest. Tomorrow is a long day… full of appointments.
I started my day… very intense. For two years I have been working on a new perfume ROBERTO CAVALLI. As it was my first experience working with this new licensee, Coty pushed me to do my best and I am really convinced it will be a success!
The study for the shape of bottle was a unanimous choice. We were trying to interpret a classic yet easy shape designed for a girl who will make daily use of it… small enough for a small cosmetic bag!
The packaging is quite classic with a strong appeal to the Cavalli fashion.
The perfume? It had to be like my fashion: sexy, romantic, aggressive yet glamorous. This fragrance is very special, to win the man of your dreams and be able to shake up the man who is neglecting you!
Coty, with the collaboration of French and American experts in essence presented me with a the choice of about 25 small bottles.
I didn’t feel up to making the choice myself and be the judge. I wanted to give my fans the best perfume in the world!
I asked for help and sought the judgment of my friends, the Stars.
I began to travel from Paris to London and from Moscow to New York.
The biggest Stars in music and showbiz helped me to choose…
I returned to Florence with the two samples that received the most votes.
The final decision was Eva’s and mine. We have proclaimed the winner.
It seemed like the election of Miss Universe!
This morning I presented my new fragrance to journalists from the American press. I tried to convey my enthusiasm…
Now the final judgment is up to you and I would love to hear it.
A few drops will accompany you now!
Un bacino grande
I LOVE YOU
