for Santa Maria Novella


Calabrian Bergamot, Citrus, Vetiver, Oak Musk - A very old and concentrated scent with an extraordinarily luminous depth and a character which places it beyond contemporary trends.


Due probably to the abundance of natural materials here there is a very pronounced change in the character of this perfume over time. As it is also a triple extract it has great strength and tenacity with prolonged evolution once applied. It is precisely this perpetual change which compels constant reappraisal and exploration. The associations change as new facets reveal themselves and so must the wearer's sense of place and context. You are wearing a story.
