Mendittorosa – Archetipo
Shadows, shaking candle flame, moonstone, marbles. Archetipo surrounds you in its absolute silence.
Archetipo was always here. Before us, before all human ideas. With Archetipo Extrait we can experience again the feeling of reaching our real thoughts. We can find out our primordial memories. We can lose ourselves in a time without time. With Archetipo we are re-entering THE OLFACTIVE MEMORY. Archetype of smell. Archetypical scent. To re-wake. To forget and to remember again. Tabula rasa of stereotypes. Ideas imprinted in soul before the birth. Plato and his cave myth.
Archetipo is the world, the space, the time, the imagination. It is the moment when we are ready to see beyond the reality. Shadows of what we really are…so far, yet so close.
The heart notes include a special raw material selected for Archetipo: Bushman candle (Sarcocaulon Mossamedensis), a small plant from Namibia, used there as a candle during the night to protect from harm thanks to its heady scent. A multi-faceted ingredient with a smoky, woody and incense aroma.
ARCHETIPO AND RITUALE – Handmade caps
Tangle and knot. Roots and streets. Nests. The material shape of a time without time. Stefania Squeglia’s personal design brought to life by an Italian artist Mauro Carrazza. Order from chaos, “tangles of protection”. Entirely curved by hands piece by piece.
