Compagni di scuola (1988)

compagnidiscuola2_bornunicornFederica (Nancy Brilli) is a glamourous woman who invites her high-school class mates to her beautiful mansion 15 years after their diploma. They will reminisce the best years of their lives but also bitterly reflect on their present. The opening sequence is set in the hostess’ bedroom, where’s she’s applying her make-up.

A lot can be said about these two perfumes, but words can barely express the shock and awe you experienced when you smelled them. They were loud, bold, impressively persistent. The brand, founded by Fred and Gayle Hayman in 1961, reached the peak of success in the 1980s and the perfumes had a pivotal role. The women’s version was launched in 1981 and the men’s one three years later.
