The creation contained in the black bottle of the classic collection is inspired by a journey to one of the most beautiful gulfs in Italy. A place brimming with history and poetry, music and tradition, thanks to its infinite, almost disarming beauty, which leaves every traveller spellbound and hankering to stay there forever. The stopover by Paolo and Tiziana describes this magical land, so beautiful and wild, full of contradictions and weaknesses, but also full of strength and generosity, exactly like the exquisite fragrance it inspires. We are in the Gulf of Sorrento, sailing through the beautiful, characteristic islands which make it the only one of its kind in the world. Suddenly, the silhouette of Capri rises out of nowhere, and a little further along, it is followed by Procida and its legendary neighbour Ischia.
The fragrance is inspired by the cool evenings in the salty sea air spent on a road trip through this land which is the fruit of a centuries-old tradition, with its strong, bold flavours and its heavenly, divine scents. The essence of a roaring fire lit on a pitch-black night at the top of the Zaro cliffside on Punta Caruso on the Island of Ischia. Cliffs which drop sharply into the sea, looking towards the Gulf. A night with no lights, in a darkness darker than the black of night, lit only by the sizzling of the bonfire and by the dim light of the spitting ember which breaks the silence of nature; a cool, scented wind rises around Paolo and Tiziana, a wind that encompasses all the aromas of the Mediterranean bush, so full of beauty and history.
This is when the famous Sorrento Citrus Fruits are first perceived, with lemons and bergamot oranges, contrasted by the spice Thyme against a backdrop of juniper berries and English lavender. The heart notes beat strong with sophisticated, precious flowers such as Ylang-Ylang and Hyacinth, artfully matched with irreverent Cardamom and sweet white musk. The hint of salt from the sea blends the perfume, creating a sense of unique freshness, which draws strength as it is grafted into the notes provided by powerful Sandal, Cuban Cedar and precious red Patchouli woods, mixed with Oak Musk.
An exquisite fragrance that will lift you up and gently blow you across the surface of the sea water on its enveloping, mellow notes, cool and generous but at the same time warm and kind; a sensual, alluring creation, with a simple beauty that echoes the immense beauty of nature and of our splendid homeland. This precious bottle guards all the emotion of a night spent in the gulf of Sorrento, enjoying the salty emotion of the northwest wind, with the famous notes of O Sole Mio playing in the background... wear this fragrance with your eyes closed to see your inner beauty!
