POMPEII

“I shall give you an ointment that my girl
received from the Venus and the cupids,
that once you smell, you will pray the gods, or Fabullo,
to make you all nose..”

(Catullo, carme XIII)

The luxuriant "horti" of the philosophers, the parietal paintings of the patrician villas and the sunny views of the Gulf of Naples echo in the olfactory mosaic of this fragrance dedicated to ancient Pompeii. Fresh and fruity aromas welcome you to the laboratory of the "Perfumer's House" and reveal the secrets of the deep aromatic knowledge acquired by the Romans.

Plants with relaxing effects and medicinal powers recall Pliny the Elder's tales of the beneficial effects of aromas and the hours of "otium" that the Roman nobles used to spend in the gardens to restore the body and mind.

Lively Geranium, sparkling Lemon and sought-after Italian Bergamot enhance the Mediterranean radiance of this composition.
Rosemary, Coriander and Sage release medicinal virtues.
The Sandalwood thrives with its warm aroma, over an intense Jasmine heart note.

Pompeii is a place where nature communes with the spirit among the silences of the gardens. It gives the spirit serenity and joy, the pleasure of dialogue, inner listening.
