A wandering, free-spirited, smoky sandalwood and yellow sunflower

The essence of a wandering soul, the untamed spirit of the open road and the boundless skies lives in our captivating Gypsy Wood scent.

At its heart, Gypsy Wood is a scent that defies convention and embraces the wild beauty of nature. Its foundation rests upon Sandalwood's rich, smoky embrace, a wood that has long been revered for its grounding and meditative qualities. The smouldering scent of Sandalwood anchors this fragrance, creating a warm and comforting base that resonates with the very earth from which it originates.

Interwoven with the Sandalwood is the golden aura of Yellow Sunflower, a blossom that basks in the sun's radiance and embodies the spirit of freedom and joy. The sunflower's vibrant character infuses the Gypsy Wood scent with a sense of unbridled energy, evoking visions of sun-dappled meadows and wind-kissed fields.

In the opening notes, the fragrance pays homage to the ancient incense ritual with the inclusion of Frankincense. This resinous treasure has adorned altars and sanctuaries for centuries, its billowing smoke carrying prayers and dreams to the heavens. In Gypsy Wood, Frankincense's presence is not overpowering; instead, it dances lightly, gracefully mingling with the other elements like a whispered secret.

The ode to 1940s Hollywood glamour

Scents can transcend time, capturing the essence of a bygone era and allowing us to relive the allure of days long past. White Musk is one such olfactory masterpiece, an aromatic tribute to the luxury and sophistication of 1940s Hollywood glamour.

From the moment the scent unfurls, White Musk is a journey that begins with a breath of nostalgia. The opening notes welcome us with the crispness of Citrus and the warmth of Bergamot, reminiscent of a grand entrance onto a glittering red carpet. Like the first act of a classic film, this initial burst of fragrance sets the stage for the enchanting tale about to unfold. As the scent evolves, it dances into a spicy Floral melody that evokes the elegance of screen sirens and leading men. 

The floral heart notes, rich and intricate, mirror the complexity of emotions that often lay beneath the glamorous facade of old Hollywood. It's a reminder that beneath the dazzling lights and radiant smiles were intricate lives and untold stories, much like the layers of this fragrance itself.

The scent of Florence's atelier workshops

Along with delighting the senses, some scents tell stories, paint pictures, and transport us to places where time seems to stand still. Artisan Leather is one such scent—a representation of the essence of atelier workshops nestled in the heart of Florence, where skilled hands craft beauty from raw materials. This fragrance is an ode to the artisans, a homage to their dedication, and a celebration of the artistry that breathes life into leather.

At the core of Artisan Leather lies the torching allure of Tobacco and the rugged elegance of Grained Leather. These notes merge seamlessly to create an intoxicating blend that speaks of heritage and mastery. The aroma of Tobacco carries a sense of familiarity, of evenings spent in quiet contemplation, while the Grained Leather note adds a tactile depth, a texture that can be felt as much as it is sensed.

As the scent unfolds, it warms and deepens, with the grounding presence of Cypress, which lends an earthy touch reminiscent of the smell of aged wooden workbenches and the greenery that surrounds the ateliers. It's a nod to nature's role in inspiring the craftsman's creations, a reminder that artistry and the environment are intertwined.
