Filì is an ancient Greek word that means the Pure Kiss - a Kiss written with a capital K, elevated to the purest state that only true love can achieve, and devoid of earthly, carnal passions and lusts. Encapsulated in this precious flask, made entirely by hand from leaves of precious silver by skilled artisans so that no two bottles are ever the same, inspired by the pure kiss. One can still feel its echoes in the halls of the Castello di Gradara, where Goldoni's famous lovers Paolo and Francesca lived their own love story.
Great works of art have been inspired by this eternal kiss - poems, paintings, music, sculpture and now, thanks to the exclusive V Canto Collection, luxurious handmade artistic fragrances. A love so strong and pure that even today, centuries later, it still reverberates...from the high walls of the castle also known as La Rocca dell'Amore, or Fortress of Love: a place where romance and beauty meet the essence of life. This creation, with its silver, sparkling character, embodies the trembling of that unforgettable kiss, and every hint of its scent will make the heart beat faster.
This silver kiss, with its stimulating freshness and elegant seduction, is expressed in this artistic creation, which opens with a vibrant citrus-driven fruit bouquet, where the effervescent Sicilian grapefruit and Calabrian bergamot are softened by an underlying bed of soft Provencal blackcurrant. This fresh, silvery top flows into a deeply intense and complex middle, with notes of Nepalese cardamom paired with Sri Lankan cinnamon. The bold, decisive and precious spice notes are blended in a truly innovative harmony with Tuscan leather and the much-appreciated Indian cypriol. The whole is supported by a strong, powerful base with an extraordinary persistence, where the dominant notes of Indian red sandalwood and Cuban cedar are complemented by Romagna birch and Tuscan oak moss, artfully blended with the enchanting and aphrodisiac effects of extraordinarily rare Malaysian purple patchouli and legendary ambergris.
