Athanor and Orlo by Mendittorosa
The Neapolitan brand Mendittorosa has been known to perfume lovers for many years thanks to its fantastic bottles and unpredictable scents, divided into two collections: the Odori d'Anima Collection, "scents of the soul", and the Talismans Collection.
The Odori d’Anima fragrances are connected with Stromboli; a living, breathing volcano. Stromboli, or Iddu in the local dialect, is Stefania Squeglia's symbol, muse and protection. "My perfumes exist to bring this energy and much more to you; as important tools and keys placed in your hands and on your skin in your search in life. Perfumed mirrors of the soul," says Stefania Squeglia, the creator of Mendittorosa.
The fragrances from the Talismans Collection are meant to "protect us and grant us power; they are private prayers we hold close and whisper to in the dark. We wash them in tears. In times of shadow and ash, they remind us we are safe and loved, guided and sacred."
The second monumental launch is Athanor, the newest entry in the Talismans Collection.
Head notes: Elemi , Pink pepper, Cardamom, Cumin
Heart notes: Lavender, Petit Grain, Neroli, Ylang Ylang
Base notes: Saffron, Leather, Papyrus Wood, Rhum, Oud
Orlo, an oriental floral composition created by Anne-Sophie Behaghel, is an homage to one of the greatest poets of the 20th century — Sylvia Plath. "Wear it and get courage and inspiration to combat the ghosts and spirits you meet in your life. Orlo is distinctness and determination," says Stefania.
Head notes: Sulfur, Cassis, Saffron
Heart notes: Iris, Cypriol, Fumencens
Base notes: Cashmeran, Guaiac wood, Vetiver Java, Black amber
According to the brand, "this extreme Talismans is tracing its roots back to the alchemical experiments and efforts made since the Middle Ages. Athanor comes with a unique sculpture that symbolizes the transformation and blending of elements made possible by fire at extreme temperatures in the crucible. Smell the sulfur from the process! Underneath and inside, you find a fusion of ethics and aesthetics to enhance the beauty of your personality. A blend of flowers and Fumencens will surround you. The result is a smell of pleasure and intoxication coming from the best oils in the highest concentration. Let Athanor penetrate your body and soul, and you will spread gold to the world like the nugget on the bottom of the bottle. Reach your core and light inside and share."
