The fragrance is inspired by Venice and its famous “Briccole”. The “Briccole” are oak wood poles (sometimes of larch) that in the lagoon canals of Venice delimit the navigable areas. About every twenty years the “Briccole” must be replaced because they are deteriorated by saltiness and above all by the erosion of a marine mollusc (the Teredeo navalis) which feeds on wood.
The fragrance is as fresh as a sea breeze, as sensual as the oriental spices that the merchants of the Serenissima brought to Europe. Venetiae tells the magic of a city unique in the world and of fascinating history. A fragrance that opens with iodine and citrus notes of bergamot and lemon, evolves into floral (lavender) and Mediterranean (myrtle and seaweed) aromas and closes in a woody and musky finish.
