Orto Parisi Fragrances
October 6th, 2017
“Orto Parisi states that our body is experienced like a garden, and its smells are a true mirror of our soul.”
For the first time at Poepke, we welcome a range of fragrances – Orto Parisi, by the Italian perfumer, Alessandro Gualtieri . The range is inspired by Gualtieri’s grandfather, Vincenzo, who “used buckets to collect both his needs that timely ended up fertilising the garden”. Gualtieri, pays homage to Vincenzo by blurring the line between the pleasant and unpleasant, with his collection of fragrances. Each portray the duality of freshness versus stench and attraction versus repulsion.
Eschewing describing these parfums through notes of scent, instead, they have a story as the stimulus for their creation.
Bergamask – ‘berga’ from bergamot, is a very fresh citrus fruit and ‘mask’ captures the musky odour expelled by a fresh kill.
Boccanera – means ‘dark mouth’ in Italian. Nature offers dark holes that express sensuality in an erotic, dark way.
Brutus – is in reference to the Roman senator Marcus Junius Brutus, who was known for his lack of eloquency.
Seminalis – is an odour responsible for leading males to females.
Stercus – is from Latin meaning ‘dung’ or ‘faeces’.
Terroni – refers to Italians from the South, and is inspired by the roots and the land around the volcano Vesuvius.
Viride – comes from the Latin meaning ‘green’ and represents virility.
Each bottle is inspired by the flask, a vessel for liquids to satisfy your thirst. The cap is made of solid metal and the inlay on top is a product of nature – either wood, nut, horn or bakelite.
