Tiziana Terenzi - Luna Collection - Orion
“As children during the hot, sunny days of summer, Tiziana and I spent most of our time with our grandfather in the countryside. He would fill our days with magic tales, teaching us the wonders of the world.
Our father Evelino often accompanied us on holiday trips with his sailboat made entirely of fragrant wood. We would cut through the seas on this boat, with bright eyes and an eagerness for new discoveries, getting to know the infinite beauty of the Italy we loved.
Just a few miles from our city, there is an enchanted mountain that hurls itself against the sea, creating a breath-taking scene: Mount Conero. The rocks and forests are mirrored in the crystal clear water of one of the most beautiful bays in Italy, which is protected by two peaks, the Two Sisters that were thrown into the sea by the gods. We would depart in the middle of the night accompanied by light breezes that trailed the cheerful scent of the Mediterranean scrub throughout the entire voyage. Orienting himself by the stars, our Father sailed confidently, while our Grandfather Guglielmo pointed out the constellation Orion and its mythical belt. On occasion we would see fire on dry land and bonfires that revealed dangers to the sailors. Our hearts were met with an explosion of scents carried on the summer's warm winds that still reverberate in us today.
Orion is a result of that faraway echo. It is a spicy, intense perfume, strong yet delicate at the same time. The bouquet of citrus makes it effervescent, in contrast to the sweetness of the pineapple and the roundedness of the apple, all of which lead to its brilliant wake of spicy balance composed of thyme and oregano.
A cool breeze swirls past when it is worn, and a reminder of the select wood accompanies us on a dreamlike voyage towards the Infinite.”
Tiziana Terenzi presents her Luna project which is dedicated to the "future of memory". The literary tradition of the medieval chivalric epic "Chanson de Geste", and its subsequent more popular form, tells us that all lost items, or rather items that have gone astray, end up on the moon. The moon is the place where dreams and tears, love and reason, days of idleness and unfinished deeds are kept in precious glass ampoules. Bottles rather similar to those used to contain Tiziana Terenzi's precious essences today.
This collection is dedicated to the "rediscovery" of what we seem to have forgotten and what we cannot forget. Tiziana Terenzi takes us back to places during warm summer nights under a bright moon and sparkling stars. Through the eyes of a child, they appear full of magic and wonder. The memory itself makes them seem even more charming. Tiziana and Paolo have extracted these very personal moments, yet universal feelings in the form of rare precious essences. The four compositions invite you to relive them again and again
