Alessandro created Bergamask after an evening spent in a tiny Italian village – he attended a town party and was enthralled by the scent in the air. It was hot and thick, the scent of Italian citrus trees wafting through the air, people were dancing with joyous abandon, the scent of sweat filled the air. The disregard for what others think, just the enjoyment of the moment. The traditional dance called Bergamasca originated from the town of Bergamo in Northern Italy. Considered a clumsy, rustic dance, Alessandro wanted to replicate the scent he remembered on that wonderful evening of joie de vivre. Bergamask captures the scent of a hot night – the smell of citrus fruits mingling with a musky undertone of sweat. A fragrance that plays on light and dark, the fresh cleanliness of the citrus with the leather, musky tones and slightly dirty sweat scent. Bergamask has an earthy freshness, it is animalic and quite rich – a citrus that lasts all day.
HOW IT WEARS
All of the Orto Parisi fragrances are parfum extract so last up to 24 hours on the skin – they are strong and long lasting! This is an exceptional citrus fragrance as it outlasts any other citruses we’ve come across! In fact it outlasts most woody, earthy scents. Fresh and citrus but with a very unique earthy base to give it grounding. Bergamask is a signature perfume that people will stop to ask about on the street because it has incredible projection as well as lasting power.
We love that we get the best of both worlds with Bergamask – citrus heaven, slightly dirty and intense longevity and projection. The ultimate citrus for someone who still wants something bold and unique! Bergamask almost gets woody on the skin but maintains the crisp fresh citrus tone throughout.
ABOUT THE BRAND
“The parts of the body that carry more smell are those where more soul is collected. The strong smells have become unpleasant to us, because the excess of soul is intolerable to the extent that our innate animalism is repressed and breaking from civilization. This project is my garden I have planted, fertilized, cultivated, and harvested. Orto Parisi states that our body is experienced like a garden, and its smells are a true mirror of our soul.” The Nose, Alessandro Gualtieri. The perfume collection inspired by bodily scents, Alessandro takes a no holds approach to fragrance. He is unapologetic in his challenging fragrance line –he creates an experience with his fragrances. The Orto Parisi collection has an animalic, undeniably dirty take on scent that is at the same time alluring and hard to resist. Love it or hate it, Orto Parisi makes an impact and challenges the status quo of the fragrance world.
