No one has ever described with higher words the beauty that manifests itself in the wonders of creation. Il “Canto dei Cantici” of Francis of Assisi is the simplest but the most solemn prayer that man has been able to compose to celebrate the gifts of heaven and earth.
We approached timidly to the Umbrian inland places where the mystic lived, often set apart for fasting and penance. Forests, caves, natural shelters that was the background of his ascetic and quintessential life, have become the inspiration for an intense woody fragrance, which bears a name so full of spiritual meanings.
Tau speaks about love and brotherhood, peace, gratitude and harmony between man and nature.
Notes of musk, grew at the foot of ancient oaks, bring you to clearings and trails. Juniper berries, balsamic lentisco and aromatic sage draw shaded plots on dew’s reflections. Birch and cistus labdanum give a resinous base, tenacious, tempered by a lively geranium and by a sparkling bergamot. Shades of leather at the center of the composition, to remember the steps of Francis, who walked so much in those lonely places.
Tau is fresh perfume, atavistic, primordial.
A hymn to the beauty that is released in the simplicity and in the essentials.
In nature there are life and soul, spirit and transcendence.
Verde Alpi is the marble used for the cap. It has the color of the forest that represents hope.

Dante Alighieri, the greatest Italian poet, author of the “Divina Commedia”, one of the masterpieces of world literature, described symbolically, with the image of the White Rose of Paradise, the manifestation of the sublime metaphysical vision.
Mystical flower, feminine symbol of purity and absolute beauty, incarnation of virtuous love that is able to transcend the limits of the human intellect, the white rose is the fresh and clean heart of Empireo, the Onyrico’s fragrance dedicated to Dante’s poem.
We mixed the most sublime essences to interpret the suggestions inspired by this heavenly place where human finitude and infinity become the same in a unique, ecstatic and contemplative vision. The result is a mixture that escapes to easy definitions.
Empireo is a transparent, ozonic, romantic perfume, which fades in the inebriating and sumptuous amber tones and in the penetrating aroma of jasmine sambac.
It is an ode to the classic beauty and virtues embodied by Beatrice, Dante’s muse and symbol of Grace and Truth.

Each trip is an extraordinary experience that comes from the heart. Whether it’s a physical goal or an imaginary landing, the interest in an unknown location is always the expression of an inner longing, the desire of a free spirit to challenge rules and break down boundaries.
Itineris is a physical journey, sensorial, emotional and metaphorical at the same time. It is the olfactory story of Marco Polo’s historic journey, one of the most celebrated explorers of history, and a tribute to the spirit of adventure that guides the steps of the famous adventurers like those of any passionate traveler.
Left Venice when he was very young, in 1271, he reached with his father and uncle the far East across the Silk Road and became the personal adviser of the great emperor Kublai Khan. He stayed in Asia more than 20 years.
His story, told in the masterpiece entitled “The Million”, it’s adventurous as uplifting. The spirit of curiosity and initiative, his open attitude and his sense of respect for the Land of the Rising Sun, make this extraordinary adventurer also an example of dialogue and respect among peoples.
The notes of Itineris are rich and lively. An opening that reminds silk hints introduces in the secret garden of the emperor, with notes of mandarin and bewitching, honeyed osmanthus. The heart evokes woody ceremonial and treatments of ancient tradition. Intense heliotrope, rose and jasmine adorn the elegant peony, traditionally a flower cultivated for the Orient’s imperial families. A spicy base of amber, sandalwood and vanilla is the seal of a perfume that, in any context, intends to leave a trace.
Seals the bottle a very refined cap in Portoro’s marble. The very dark color with a gold striping pattern, reminds the richness of the emperor palace.
Just saying his name is possible to sum up the grandness of the Italian Renaissance. Sculptor, painter, architect, poet, Michelangelo Buonarroti has realized works among the most admired in the world: the David, the Pietà, the Sistine Chapel’s frescoes.
Simply carries his name, the fragrance we wanted to dedicate to his genius and his versatile talent.
Michelangelo is an eclectic and essential fragrance that follows the Artist’s thought “takes away the superfluous” to enhance the intrinsic peculiarities of each component.
With its enveloping chiaroscuro, the fragrance speaks about the art and nature of his birthplace, but also about a seductive temptation.
The heart of this fresh and fruity fragrance, which turns spicy in the end, is a strong hint of fig, which reminds the extraordinary variety of species that can be found in the hills around Arezzo and recalls the famous scene of the original sin represented in the Sistine Chapel.
Introduced by sparkling notes of bergamot and grapefruit, enhanced by wild cassis, the dominant note of this composition is emphasized by an aromatic woody marigold and sweet magnolia, softened by an inebriating and sensual hyacinth.
Intense vetiver, spicy patchouli, cistus labdanum resin and incense notes seal the bottom, paying tribute to the everlasting value of Michelangelo’s works.
The marble used for the cap is the pearly white, pure, Statuario marble that comes from the quarries of Tuscany. It’s the same marble the master used for his sculptures.
