The convertible hugged the curves of the winding corniche road. Below, the azure sea unfolded, contrasting with the plush emerald carpet of umbrella pines. Jackie sat in the passenger seat, wearing a loosely tied scarf as the warm air skimmed her face. For a moment the sea faded from view, as the couple passed charming villas overlooking the water. Through gaps in the tall hedges, magnificent gardens could just be glimpsed, suspended on the cliffside.
The sea reappeared, adorned in a vividly hued blue, just like an Yves Klein painting, Jackie mused. In the distance, Cape Ferrat plunged into the breathtaking bay. The light breeze of the July afternoon was filled with the symphonic scent of conifers and aromatic herbs. They wished that the day would go on forever, so the dream could continue on this road linked inextricably to the French Riviera.
The mythical scenic drive along the coastline of the French Riviera, so vividly captured in Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief, starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant, is the inspiration for Rivera Drive. Warm air signals escapism and the scent of pure freedom. Riviera Drive captures these moments with a reviving scent of fresh herbs and a squeeze of lemon highlighting the coastline’s panoramic charm. An adventurous spirit and the aromatic scent of the sheltering Pin Parasol enfold you. A dash of intoxicating absinthe and the spiritual virtues of patchouli amplify the intensity.
