This fragrance is inspired by a memorable journey to the Eternal City, Rome, capital of the world since ancient times. A magical place that whirls you away in a vortex of emotions and aromas, full of beauty and wonders that to this day take the errant visitor’s breath away. On a warm evening in late summer, walking along the thousand year old cobblestones of the Imperial Forum towards the Colosseum, surrounded by the inebriating beauty of the eternal city, one of the oldest in the world, rich in history and legends, we came across a group of actors sitting around a small campfire. They were setting up a performance dedicated to the Masque of Dionysus, that enigmatic, bewitching, irreverent and audacious Deity, capable of making fun of any set of rules or conventions. As exuberant and out of the norm, as this perfume, he defied convention, broke down principles and inhibitions, flung man into delirious turmoil, back into a state of primordial purity. His the essence of ecstasy, of intoxication and the liberation of the senses, he the undying catalist of the flow of life, his the absolute understanding of existence, the frenetic currents of life that pervade everything. Dionisio is the personification of both the male and the female, amalgamating both the divine and the animal, the tragic and comic in contradiction and tension. He represents that mystical delirium ignited by the primordial and instinctive spark that, although remaining dormant at times, has never been completely stifled and is present in each and every one of us.
