An ode to the Italian tradition of the Opera, Masque Milano tells an olfactory story with a dynamic repertoire of fragrances that bring to life a myriad of emotions. Each Act, an interpretation of the different facets of life.
ACT II – The act of “inner monologues”, reflecting one’s abstract, spiritual moods.
Luci ed Ombre speaks of the undecidedness between light and shadow, of chiaroscuro – the practice of using light and dark in painting for dramatic effect. Taking inspiration from van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Luci ed Ombre represents the unsettling clash in the skies, where there is darkness yet they convey a feeling of relaxation and calmness.
The scent manages to conjure dual images of peacefulness and gloom; the dichotomy of a calm field and a thick, quite wood, where no sumbeam can penetrate. You realize that such an enticing scene has a gloomy facet, intriguing and mysterious. It is the night meeting the day, the embrace between light and shadow. The dark side is irresistibly fascinating, stronger than any fears and uneasiness it produces.
These opposites not only cohabit a space but also make one another more powerful. The scent portrays both an energetic freshness and a dark animalic truth. Notes of ginger and earthy patchouli balance indolic florals and a wisp of incense. A perfect scent for those seeking something truly mysterious and captivating.
