Description

The key ingredient in this ode to gold is ‘Safraleine’, a molecule that evokes saffron, with its lush, leathery accents. Around that note, the designer wove frankincense, curcuma, patchouli, slightly floral notes, like coriander and geranium, and another molecule christened ‘Pepperwood’, with a fluid, lightly spicy-peppery scent. Designed by: Antoine Lie, Givaudan

At a glance

The scent of gold?

History

8 88 represents an olfactory search for the imaginary scent of gold. For centuries, gold has had mythical connotations, as a precious symbol of health, wealth and happiness. But above and beyond the purity, myth and magic, what might gold smell like? The result is a romanticized gold that blends poetry, luxury and fantasy. And why 8 88? Because 8 is a lucky number around the world, especially in China. But 8 is also, if you look at it from a different point of view, the infinity symbol. 8 88 is a fragrance for him or her, find it at selected points of sale.

    How innovative. What does gold smell like? I want to find out. Even if it does not remind me of gold, the packaging does (Paco Rabanne has the best gold packaging). Saffron is intoxicating. The use of the number 8 is quirky but likeable. Would this be an alchemist's favorite fragrance? Science made sexy!

    Love this scent.. I think it's Safraleine that gives the feeling of warm aura. Almost glow in the dark.
