The perfume delivers a beautifully thrilling shock to all the senses – three oud fragrances with a complex structure form a surprising, original combination.
The creator of these daring harmonies is Maurizio Cerizza, who boasts a long, illustrious career as a maître parfumeur with the sensitivity of a true artist. For him, “Creating means stepping off the beaten track” to achieve “a result that is often unexpected but always expresses great balance and harmony”.
“When, with closed eyes, on a hot afternoon,
The scent of thine ardent breast I inhale,
Celestial vistas my spirit assail;
Caressed by the flames of an endless sun.
A languorous island, where Nature abounds
With exotic trees and luscious fruit;
And with men whose bodies are slim and astute,
And with women whose frankness delights and astounds.
By thy perfume enticed to this region remote,
A port I see, laden with mast and with boat,
Still wearied and torn by the distant brine;
While the tamarisk-odours that dreamily throng
The air, round my slumberous senses entwine,
And mix, in my soul, with the mariners’ song.”
Charles Baudelaire “Exotic Perfume” from The Flowers of Evil
