Dante Alighieri, the greatest Italian poet, author of the “Divina Commedia”, one of the masterpieces of world literature, described symbolically, with the image of the White Rose of Paradise, the manifestation of the sublime metaphysical vision.
Mystical flower, feminine symbol of purity and absolute beauty, incarnation of virtuous love that is able to transcend the limits of the human intellect, the white rose is the fresh and clean heart of Empireo, the Onyrico’s fragrance dedicated to Dante’s poem.
We mixed the most sublime essences to interpret the suggestions inspired by this heavenly place where human finitude and infinity become the same in a unique, ecstatic and contemplative vision. The result is a mixture that escapes to easy definitions.
Empireo is a transparent, ozonic, romantic perfume, which fades in the inebriating and sumptuous amber tones and in the penetrating aroma of jasmine sambac.
It is an ode to the classic beauty and virtues embodied by Beatrice, Dante’s muse and symbol of Grace and Truth.
Incense, myrrh and lavender emit purity notes that pay homage to a royal femininity, unattainable. Precious scents, which change on a rich base of aromatic cedarwood and tonka bean.
The bottle is secured by a very precious cap in Rose Onyx marble. Its natural stripings evoke the clouds during the sunset.
