Tiziana Terenzi -Extrait de Parfum 100 ml Cassiopea
This composition was born from a trip in the family holiday home, where, in the company of the whole family, Tiziana and I spent happy days running in the woods, listening to Grandfather's stories about plants and flowers, playing at recognising their scents. None of us at that time would have thought that one day that game would become our passion and our "Job".
At the foot of Mount Catria there is a small village with 1000 residents called Frontone. The tranquillity of the place is broken only by the scents of the flowers and plants that surround the valley. Not far from there there is the Fonte Avellana: a place of meditation and silence that gives the journey a spiritual flavour. Our house was protected by Frontone Castle, a fortification that surveyed the area's border that the Romans crossed to reach the Adriatic and the last stronghold of the Duchy of Montefeltro between the XV and XVI centuries. A place rich in history and wonders, in the midst of which we played happily. By climbing the highest tower of the castle, in its magnificent setting, you can seen the massive Monte Nerone and as far as the State of San Marino, while on the opposite side you can look over the Adriatic Sea.After dinner, under the glow of a huge yellow moon, we played on the tower lit with flaming braziers under a starry sky...
Therefore, this extrait de parfum is bright and sparkling and becomes timeless just like the constellation that gives it its name. A bouquet of citrus and fresh scents emits effervescent scents counterpointed by ylang ylang and jasmine water. A delicate freshness that surrounds you and is with you all day. A scent with a reserved, but at the same time firm, personality, ignited by the memory of pear nectar and white heliotrope, wrapped by the sweetness of icing sugar, cocoa and milk.
This perfume is the story of a dream that tells of the wonderful journey on the wings of the imagination, the eternal child within us, who passed a hot summer night counting shooting stars. A flight to exotic places where they magical and unknown creatures live in scented forests of enchantment. It is the encounter with fairies and elves, with bright colours and wonderful scents, collected and recorded forever in this precious nectar of fantasy.
A timeless fragrance that never fails to speak of love and gratitude.

The Luna project
Tiziana Terenzi presents her new style project dedicated to the "future of memory". It is an artistic exploration that bases its principles on Tiziana's classic collection, enriching the basic features with fine details from the Stylists's jewellery-making experience.
Tiziana Terenzi Luna
The literary tradition of the medieval chivalric epic "Chanson de Geste", and its subsequent more popular form, tells us that all lost items, or rather items that have "gone astray", end up on the moon. The moon is the place where dreams and tears, love and reason, days of idleness and unfinished deeds are kept in precious glass ampoules. Bottles rather similar to those used to contain Tiziana Terenzi's precious essences today. By opening them and breathing in their content, a ritual that is repeated when we "taste" a perfume, we become the owners of the lost object therein. And when wearing one of these perfumes, we feel a sense of wonder, because this collection embodies the essence of "re-discovery", of recognising the dearest possessions we thought we had lost, or perhaps did not even know that we had forgotten. Wearing these fragrances takes us on an epic journey to the moon in search of our precious lost object.
"The chariot, towering, threads the fiery sphere,/And rises thence into the lunar reign." Thus begins Canto XXXIV of Orlando Furioso, in which the protagonist, the Knight Astolfo, is sent to the moon on a special mission: he must recover Orlando's wits, which he has lost because of love.
Astolfo, Orlando's faithful companion who wants to return the Knight to his senses, travels to the moon on the back of a hippogriff, an incredible, magical, winged horse. Having reached his destination, Astolfo can see everything that has been collected: a rich and varied collection of things that have been lost on earth. Not only the riches and glories of ancient kingdoms, but also the tears and sighs of lovers, the time wasted by men and the projects that they never completed. Tiziana Terenzi wanted to retrieve her own "lost object" from the Moon, by completing an unfinished task that she has been working on for years. An artistic project that combines her golden poetic extraction with the verbalisation of scents that explore cosmic boundaries.Tales of a lunar fire that warms and nourishes travellers on the imagination's journey through distant memories, tales of trips that Tiziana and I made at an early age to memorable places in Italy, of bonfires and moonlight. Maybe that is why in this collection, more than ever, the fairy-tale element of memory clearly emerges, giving her assayers a fragrance created with the pure heart of the child within us, absolutely devoid of any contamination and influenced only by an artistic, loving imagination.The times when we were children, gazing at the sky on warm summer evenings, in the company of our grandfather Guglielmo and our father Evelino come to mind. On the flowered hills close to home, drowning in the scents and aromas of wild nature, we learned to recognise the stars and listened to the poems recited by our grandfather, together with the whole family, around a cheerful, crackling fire. These magical, happy evenings in the moonlight gave rise to a private collection of rare and precious essences, a secret shared only by Tiziana and Paolo. This small but tremendous treasure was composed of such rare and expensive essences that it simply could not be offered to others, unless as a gift. And indeed they had never shared it with anyone else until now. It is.
After more than twenty years of patient toil spent seeking and jealously preserving these rare components, today we are pleased and excited to present four fragrances that embody our most complex stylistic project: Tiziana Terenzi Luna. An exclusive collection inspired by the beauty of wonderment. Childlike wonderment, lost and then found, to be enclosed in the drops of a "lost"perfume which has never been revealed until now. Our own ride on the hippogriff has led us to create four stellar (or mythological or lunar) wonders:
