Anima Mundi is a journey back to the most fascinating and remote periods of human history. Those which gave rise to writing and philosophy, the great religions and the imposing architectures which still evoke emotions and deep admiration. It was from those distant times, in lands inhabited by peoples surrounded by mysteries, where the art of perfumery also arose: ritual knowledge carried out with fumes and secretly handed down by ancient masters.
Preserved texts and engravings found on temples have served as our inspiration for this exclusive signature collection which celebrates the greatest civilisations of the past and their sophisticated olfactory practices. The Latins, Egyptians, Maya, Nabataeans, and Dravidians all live again in the atmospheres invoked by the precious heritage of olfactory knowledge that has been handed down on the walls of the villas of Pompeii, in the laboratories of the Pyramids, in the manuscripts of the Mayan Codes, in the Ayurvedic texts.
The secrets of these blends come from natural components that were once used for fumigation, the recipes suggested by the ancient herbals and the most sought-after spices carried on the Perfume Road.
Each fragrance is an atavistic call that crosses temporal and geographical distances.
Each perfume is the essence of a people and the echo of a philosophical principle that goes back to the dawn of time: the Soul of the World, the “breath” that gives life, the creative spirit that forms the Universe.
