In the euphoric mood that characterized 1848, at the end of may Mazzini wrote to Mameli that, with the success of “Fratelli d’Italia”, he was known as the exponent of Italy’s national sentiments.
“Take that first moment of inspiration… belligerent, popular; an atmosphere of freedom, and send me an anthem that will become Italy’s Marseillaise”.
These few phrases inspired me in the composition of Celebration.
An essence that celebrates the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification, it incarnates the free spirit of the Italian Risorgimento. The explosive richness of the citrusy head notes – green, are an anthem to the joy and the patriotic spirit that animated the battles for the unification.
A great smell, extreme and refined, unmistakable in its Italian elegance; exquisite interpretation of all scents that you can find during a pilgrimage in our magical peninsula.
Wildflowers, trappings, forests, aromatic shrubs, clean air, the argentine freshness of mountain streams and the salty scent of the shores hover, majestic and royal, in this wonderful olfactory composition. A subtle mix of Mediterranean ingredients; Calabria’s bergamot, orange blossom and tangerine from Sicily, lemons from Amalfi’s coast, rosemary from Tremiti’s islands, Roman mint and olive flowers from Gargano, verbena and rose of Portofino, Iris and Narciso Fiorentino, myrtle and gorse from Sardinia, oak musk and Artemisia’s absinthe, chamomile and mastic of Valli Padane fused together with a heart of Jasmin from Calabria and a base of Cypress Wood.
The final touch is an infusion of Grey Amber, the only exception to this Made in Italy symphony.
