XIX March Extrait de Parfum 100 ml
Tiziana Terenzi - XIX March Extrait de Parfum 100 mlOn the night of 19 March, the verge of the spring equinox when day is equal to night, it is tradition in the region of Cattolica, the home of the Terenzi’s, to build a large bonfire (“focarina”) to burn up the leftover twigs and brush from winter and make room for the rebirth of spring. The air is filled with intense smells: fresh and new, yet nevertheless ancient.
This ancient tradition gives us a fragrant hope of spring, where orange notes in the head join with mint and green notes that sprout in a heart of spices: lavender, cinnamon, clove and jasmine combine the best of spring and winter and allow us to celebrate the new season. Sparks crackle and fly in the night air with a base of sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver and musk, spiced with nutmeg and rosemary.
The Terenzi family describes their four fragrances "Gold Rose Oudh", "White Fire", "Ecstasy" and "XIX March" as follows: "... the hypnotic power and beauty of fire has always been present in our lives and embodies with great symbolism our emotions and our creations. In our fragrances, we gathered the impressions of four stages of a journey that was dedicated to the mysterious entity of fire."
