Over a low heat, fired by the wood of chestnut trees from the neighbouring wood, arranged skilfully by the firemaker under the pot, little drops of precious nectar would condense in the glass spirals of the alembic. Eyes bright with amazement, Paolo and Tiziana would spend hours watching that unfathomable phenomenon: the fire of the wood would turn beautiful rose petals into drops of precious absolute nectar. The magic of perfume extraction was happening right in front of their eyes, like a miracle from above, wafting its scent to faraway valleys.
That evening, still excited by the all-encompassing experience of the sublimation and extraction of the absolute when suddenly, from behind the flower-clad hillside, they saw a super Moon burst out, enormous and shinier than ever before. A purplish red colour, flaming and majestic, it appeared so near to them that they were afraid it would fall on top of them.
Alarm, enthralment, excitement and wonder when faced with so much magnificence are all enclosed in this precious creation, which opens with a bold top note provided by the Rose Absolute, surrounded by wild forest raspberries and spices, such as cinnamon and cloves. The bouquet of top notes then settles on an irreverent, brave heart, almost throwing all caution to the wind, thanks to an innovative intertwining of the sensual seductive power of Bulgarian Rose and the hypnotic effect of Poppy, contrasted by the mystical strength of incense and patchouli. This fine creation is sustained and characterised to ensure an extraordinary persistence on the skin, by the power of the chestnut wood, amalgamated with resins of Benjamin and Myrrh and enhanced by the mild strength of the precious blend of Amber & Musk, kept safe for more than thirty years by the Terenzi Family. The olfactory seal for a unique, rare essence.
