NEW YORK, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Just in time for Mother's Day, Isabel and Ruben Toledo have conjured up, "Pink Putti," a potent symbol of the nurturing power of love. Celebrating the innocence and sweetness of life, the audaciously hypnotic scent honors the birth of creation itself. In the world of classical art, the word, Putti, references mythical winged infants that were believed to influence the lives and loves of mortals, just what every woman needs looking over her. Falling under the timeless spell of the color pink, the Toledos pay homage to the universal allure of this magical pigment in all of its variations. The shade selected was inspired by the majestic pink marble columns of the Trianon at Versailles Palace, the fabled pink house of Christian Dior and Aristotle Onassis, and the artistic (and romantic) studios of Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera. Pink Putti personifies the duality of strength and gentleness.
Isabel Toledo says, "I am channeling all of the powerful women in my life, especially my mother who mastered the dual qualities of strength and gentleness. We celebrate the sensuality of womanhood which does not fade with motherhood."
Pink Putti is the newest addition to the Hot House Beauties, a magical world of scent and sensations created by artist/ designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo. They envisioned a place where artistry meets the joy of life culminating in an olfactory journey that is effervescent, romantic and remarkably timeless. This vision first came to life with the birth of two botanical characters, Kuba Rose (a floral, fruity gourmand created for lovers) and the fun loving social scent, Crystal Honey (a floral, fruity musk). The deeply personal fragrances are joyful, vibrant aromatic expressions and a true declaration of the love and synergy that Isabel and Ruben share. These botanical fairies live in a world filled with art and couture that constantly cross pollinate and cultivate new blooms. Now, the celebration continues with the introduction of Hot House Beauties resident love guru: Pink Putti.
Imagined by the Toledos, and developed with world renowned Swiss fragrance house, Givaudan, the scent is categorized as a Fruity, Floral Oriental. Both teams worked closely to create a scent that is both pure and intense. Pink Putti is hypnotic with an initial burst of Pink Dragonfruit. She has an understated audacity that meets innocence and exudes an addictive floral essence that embodies an ultra-feminine and powerful Toledo woman. Embellished with Cuba's national flower, White Mariposa, the overall effect is incomparably sensual and alluring as tantalizing as the first fresh nectar from spring's early blooms.

I hope the introduction of Pink Putti, opens the door to more women experiencing the brand for the first time."
