What’s your favourite perfume?
At the moment it’s Emozione by Salvatore Ferragamo. At first I loved its name, totally in tune with my personality; then I tried it and I decided it was the one.
Do you always buy this one or do you like wearing other perfumes?
I like perfumes. I usually pick one for summer and another (with warmer notes) for winter. Last summer I enjoyed wearing a perfume a young fan had given me as a gift: Bulgari Aqua Divina. Smelling the sea on my skin while I was working in a theatre was awesome.
Why is Emozione your favourite perfume?
I can instantly smell flowers and woody notes in it, so I feel it’s in line with my idea of femininity. My favourite perfume should be young and natural, but at the same time a bit mature. I do believe that the base notes of Emozione, which I can still smell at the end of the day, perfectly express this idea.
How did you find out about it? When and where did you first buy it?
I chose it myself, while I was in a perfume shop in the centre of Milan (at the time, I was working at La Scala). I just followed my instinct, but I also appreciated the classic yet modern shape of the bottle.
When do you wear it?
If I’m not rehearsing at the theatre, I use it every day: I like dousing myself in it. When I’m busy with rehearsals, I wear just a bit: I don’t want to annoy my colleagues! In the evening, I wear it again, after taking a shower.
How do you feel when you wear it?
I feel comfortable with myself. I feel good in my own skin. I feel happy. I hope those who can smell it on me feel the same!
What opera character would wear your perfume?
Adina, because she’s a woman who goes through an evolution.
