No one has ever described with higher words the beauty that manifests itself in the wonders of creation. Il “Canto dei Cantici” of Francis of Assisi is the simplest but the most solemn prayer that man has been able to compose to celebrate the gifts of heaven and earth.
We approached timidly to the Umbrian inland places where the mystic lived, often set apart for fasting and penance. Forests, caves, natural shelters that was the background of his ascetic and quintessential life, have become the inspiration for an intense woody fragrance, which bears a name so full of spiritual meanings.
Tau speaks about love and brotherhood, peace, gratitude and harmony between man and nature.
Notes of musk, grew at the foot of ancient oaks, bring you to clearings and trails. Juniper berries, balsamic lentisco and aromatic sage draw shaded plots on dew’s reflections. Birch and cistus labdanum give a resinous base, tenacious, tempered by a lively geranium and by a sparkling bergamot. Shades of leather at the center of the composition, to remember the steps of Francis, who walked so much in those lonely places.
Tau is fresh perfume, atavistic, primordial.
A hymn to the beauty that is released in the simplicity and in the essentials.
In nature there are life and soul, spirit and transcendence.
Verde Alpi is the marble used for the cap. It has the color of the forest that represents hope.
