They say the eye wants something too. Well that worked out very well with the Sea Star Collection! It is clearly a collection that catches the eye and then we have not even talked about the scents themselves. We would like to take you into the story behind it...
But before we take you into the story behind it, let's show you why this project is so special. The project took over 2 years to complete, constantly pushing the boundaries. Only the best of the best was good enough for this project. The perfume bottles with the gilded starfish were made especially for the Terenzi family. With the showpiece, Atlantide, they went one step further. This fragrance is packed in crystal clear certified seawater, for which a special waterproof packaging was developed.
The Story Behind the Sea Star Collection
With their birth city by the sea, Tiziana and Paolo grew up in childhood with a passion for the water and its infinite mysteries. A passion passed on to them by their grandfather Evelino, an experienced sailor and "Old Sea Dog". Paolo loves to sail in his beloved, custom-made sailboat Telea. Don't expect an ultra luxurious yacht, it is as he calls it the place to come to yourself, read good books and listen to Jazz. Given to them by their grandfather, they know the ropes of sailing and the influence of the wind on the direction. This brings us to the smells.
We start right away with the showpiece of the collection: Atlantide.
Since the wind is as important in sailing as the sea, the wind direction could not be missed.
Poggia comes from the Italian verb for rest. A term used in sailing and maritime circles, it means to bear, to voluntarily move the bow of the boat away from the direction in which the wind is blowing, giving the boat itself greater thrust and stronger acceleration. Poggia embodies the spirit of this acceleration, enhancing the subtle sensuality of the hot summer wind to give the generous and lingering scent. The creation opens with a sparkling citrus bouquet, where the reverberations of Calabrian Bergamot are caressed by fragrant Sorrento Lemon, while strong echoes of Syrian Blood Orange are combined with the sparkling sweetness of Yellow Peach from Romagna. With acrobatic acceleration, the head plunges into a complex heart, almost an abyss of emotions related to speed. The tantalizing Rosemary is soothed by the compelling embrace of Polynesian Ylang Ylang, a powerful aphrodisiac highlighted by the charm of Turkish Rose and the sweetness of Green Apple and Passion Fruit.
Orza from the Italian verb for to windward. To luff means to move the bow of a sailboat in the direction of the wind. By staying upwind, the wind will blow in front of the boat, which then changes the side from which the wind is blowing. This is called tacking in maritime terms, that is, a change of course and perspective. A new perspective, encompassing all the elements of challenge and wonder, is exactly what this innovative creation offers.Navigating against the wind, before starting again on a new route and towards a new beginning! The creation opens with an explosion of fruits. Green Apple, Calabrian Mandarin and Red Plum from Romagna are highlighted by Coconut and forest fruits such as Raspberries and Blackberries from the Dolomites.
This bouquet of fruits is surrounded by precious flowers such as Mexican Magnolia and the strong sensual and enchanting scent of Himalayan Orchid. This resounding opening lies gently on a sublime floral heart, where one can feel the joyous presence of Indian Jasmine and Lily of the Valley blended with the elegance of Bulgarian Rose.
