The first essence conceived by UNUM rejoices the birth of artist Filippo Sorcinelli’s Atelier – LAVS. LAVS strives for excellence, a factory where arts and ideas together, generate spirituality, beauty and mysticism. LAVS extrait de parfum is a hymn to the Spirit: UNUM celebrates it with rosewood, whose symbology takes us back to protection, harmony and balance.
Introducing the head notes are the precious, mild, sensual jasmine, tropical cardamom, and an evocative, intense black pepper. It is around black pepper that the whole LAVS symphony plays and harmonizes.
Rosewood becomes the custodian of the senses, a protecting and accompanying energy. From this dark background, a mystic symphony of oak moss, amber & Colombian Tonka bean opens up. The balancing qualities of the aromatic and spicy oleoresin, Elemi, lead us to feelings of deep peace and open us to a unique mystic experience. Deep inside LAVS we also find cloves, coriander and labdanum notes. Labdanum, with the heat of the sun, exudes its heady fragrance from Citrus Ladanifer bushes in the western Mediterranean area. The heart also emanates notes of herbs, vanilla, tobacco, caramel and honey.
Another fundamental ingredient is Somalian opoponax, a sort of sweet myrrh from a plant that produces this purifying golden resin. This fragrance is very complex – ambery, antique, and the smell of an old trunk full of dusty clothes. But it has nuances of leather, with sweet & honeyed, woody, smoked musk.
