The bucolic setting of Sandro Botticelli’s Primavera, a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance, has inspired a flowery fragrance, fresh and elegant.
Still today, the canvas that can be seen at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, awakes infinite astonishment thanks to its richness of details and to the extraordinary scientific precision with which herbs and flowers, of the Venus garden, are painted.
Probably chosen for their healthy virtues, associated with colors, stones and metals in alchemic and mysterious doctrines, these botanical treasures are able to pay homage to the goddess of beauty that dominates the center of the complex composition, have become a lively palette of olfactory suggestions to mix with a refined and elegant touch.
The mythological figure of Zephiro, the West Wind that, for love, kidnaps the nymph Chloris, is the leitmotif that enhance every level of the creation. Bergamot and pink pepper notes represents the clear air scents that reach a bed of moss, amber and vanilla, on which stand out vivid floral notes. Among them, the sparkling neroli underlined by fresh galbanum plays deliberately, contrasting with very sensual flowers.
The absolute star of Zephiro is the provocative tuberose. A flower with a forbidden charm, narcotic and sensual that the young girls, during the Renaissance, were forbidden to smell, to avoid the risk of falling into temptation.
The Rosa Egizio marble is used as cap for this fragrance, it recalls the Tuberose and what it represents.
