In naval jargon, the "cubia eyes" indicate the hole in the bow of the ship through which both the anchor chain and the mooring lines pass. By painting concentric circles around the holes where the anchor chains passed, the Cubia recalled the shape of the eye. These eyes were drawn on the bow of the boat, as it was thought that they could guide the navigation of the boat along the right routes, avoiding pitfalls and dangers. This tradition has been handed down to this day. To commemorate and celebrate these ancient seafaring traditions in Cattolica, our home town by the sea, Cubia eyes have become the town's emblem. Cubia is an apotropaic symbol of good luck, guarding against evil and protecting the boat, bringing sailors luck and prosperity.
The fragrance opens with a citrus bouquet, where echoes of Sorrento Lemon and Calabrian Bergamot are embraced by Brazilian Orange. This sparkling head rests on the sweet scent of Romagna peaches, counterbalanced by the pungent scent of blackcurrants. This sweet and opulent composition is based on precious and very rare woods. The famous Atlas Cedar from North Africa is embraced by the seductive power of Indonesian Patchouli and Indian Sandalwood. The fragrance Cubia will envelop you in an aura of sweet protection, just as the painted eyes protect the boats of our sea.
