The genius and the works of Leonardo Da Vinci still remain a fascinating mystery.
The inexhaustible intellectual curiosity, talents expressed in every field of art and knowledge, the symbolic messages disseminated in the masterpieces and hidden between the words of manuscripts, give us only a sketched portrait of Leonardo’s extraordinary personality.
Painter, engineer, scientist, sculptor, architect, botanist and anatomist, Leonardo is, fro the world, “the genius among geniuses,” the master investigator of the secrets of the universe.
Ingenium is dedicated to his inexhaustible thirst for knowledge, his ability to represents, through art, the cosmic spirit that dwells in every aspect of nature, to the sublime painter who painted to the highest peaks of the spirit, a scent with many interpretations .
A contrasting shade of woody damask rose, gardenia and masculine tobacco is released from an opening elusive as apparently discordant. Aromatic saffron and bright bergamot take force from a nutmeg spicy note.
The base emerges suggestive and mysterious. Precious woods give off scents of rare evocative depth. Vetiver from Java, with its unmistakable fougère note, symbol of lasting freshness; the aromatic and floral guaiac wood, also called “Lignum Vitae”, the noble symbol of longevity; sandalwood, intense and enveloping with vibrant meditative scents.
Seal up the composition the magical alchemy of amber.
The marble is Perlato of Sicily. This particular marble evokes Leonardo Da Vinci drawings.
