Tiziana Terenzi - Luna Collection - Caput Mundi Extrait de Parfum 100 ml
Tiziana Terenzi’s perfumes are more than just fragrances, they are created to evoke emotions and memories. A new scent in the range, Caput Mundi, takes inspiration from the New Moon that appears as a bright black circle in the night sky and is considered to be a symbol of good luck and future prosperity. Featuring top notes of rose, saffron and amber, it has a spicy floral scent, with a warmth to captivate and enchant.
The new moon reveals itself to us as a shining black circle suspended, wonderous and perfect, in the vault of the heavens. Since ancient times she is said to possess magical powers and have a major influence on the earth, bringer of good fortune and joy to the men who turn to her.
Indeed, for centuries, especially during the glorious era of the Roman Empire, the New Moon has always been considered a symbol of good luck and future prosperity.
Like every new beginning, this time interval, marked by the phases of the moon, also brought with it the hope of being able to fulfill one's desires.
Under a Black Moon, cushioned by the charm of history and the glories of the Roman Empire, the children Paolo and Tiziana, together with their beloved family and dear grandparents Guglielmo and Luigia, embark on an adventurous journey into the fabulous capital of Italy. Rome has been known as Caput Mundi or capital of the world, since its very foundation.
Rome, the eternal city that crosses the entire history of humanity, bewitching in its monumental beauty, its alleys and famous squares hosts to Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. Every corner exhales history and reverie. Every building, every brick, every stone of this magnificent city is unique and magical. Here reality merges with the imaginary, legends become eternal myths and hearts beat with unceasing happiness every hour of the day and night.
On a magical night such as this, at the height of a Roman summer, strolling through beautiful Piazza Navona, symbol of Baroque Rome, Paolo and Tiziana begin their wonderous journey of discovery.
Their grandfather who served his years in the Cavallery in Rome, begins to tell them stories and legends, indicating breathtaking monuments, mysterious palaces and enchanted fountains. First on their path is Palazzo Madama, today the seat of the Italian Senate. Just around a curve in the road, the magnificent colonnade of the Pantheon, with its towering braziers, in which precious burning woods emanated a regal fragrance in commemoration of the noble ancestors. Still enraptured by the scent of precious woods, dreamy and excited, the two children’s hearts skip a beat: they are standing and in front of the mythical Trevi Fountain, one of the most iconic beauties of Rome, Caput Mundi.
A place not only suggestive and beautiful in its own right, but above all the symbol of that Roman Dolce Vita crystallized in Federico Fellini’s film where the beautiful Anita Ekberg famously throws herself into the fountain to bathe with Marcello Mastroianni.
Tradition has it that by closing your eyes, turning your back on the giant tub and tossing a coin over your shoulder into the fountain you not only guarentee your future return to Rome but also good luck in life.
Their hearts full of emotion, Paolo and Tiziana immediately perform the ritual, closing their eyes and turning their faces to the sky, they throw the coins grasped firmly in their small hands. At the sound of the plop in the crystalline water, they open their eyes on an even greater wonder: the magical black moon above them, ready to fulfill their every wish. The air is full of the scent of precious woods burned in the braziers and the impact of so many emotions make the two children unsteady with faintness so that their grandfather has to support them both in a strong but, at the same time, delicate embrace.
The strength of that emotion is now enclosed in this magical bottle, black like the moon that inspired it, where precious woods are mixed in a unique and regal scent.
The creation opens on a sweet, mellow, flowery note. Echoes of precious Bulgarian Rose Absolute are combined with Tea Rose and Lily of the Valley, in regal counterpoint to prized Iris supported by the strength of Cabreuva wood, native of Brazil.
This gentle, princely head lies on a tenacious and courageous heart of precious black Indian Oudh and Sandalwood, expertly mixed with the Red Patchouli. These woods find strength and emphasis thanks to the acrobatic echoes of Orris (one of the most expensive ingredients in perfumery) and of Sicilian Red Saffron. This regal heart is rooted on a base befitting such a marvel. Here the persuasive and aphrodisiac thrust of the Gray Amber embraced by the enduring strength of Cuban Cedar and Cashmere Wood can clearly be perceived. The seal of such long lasting is the imperial impetus of the precious Agarwood from Vietnam and the Oudh from Cambodia.
The indelible and irrepressible strength of the of the world’s Capital City, in a drop of eternal, regal and magical beauty for true lovers of refinement, as timeless and neverending as the cycle of the Black Moon.
