Boccanera means ‘dark mouth’ in Italian. Alessandro states “nature offers dark holes that express sensuality in an erotic dark way”. Inspired by the ancient Mayan and Aztec drink Xocolatl (also known as the drink of the gods) a dark bitter chocolate, spice and chilli blend. It is chocolate in its purest form; the drink was often consumed for its rejuvenating benefits and was often used in traditional rituals. An aphrodisiac, this drink was intended to provoke bliss, stamina and energy… Boccanera is a rich and bold scent with a decadent cacao bitterness to it, a kick of chilli and the smoothness of woods in the base. Rich and dark like the black hole that Alessandro also references, we get all sorts of sexual innuendos from this perfume!
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! Bocanerra lasts all day and night on the skin – it’s powerful and has a strong projection, you only need a tiny bit! We definitely get a rich warmth on the skin with a hint of spice, we get a bit of sweetness too but its more of a resinous sweet tone.
Bocanerra leaves a gorgeous lingering trail that turns heads and we love that it hints at sweetness but never fully goes to super sweet. If you love Black Afgano but want something a little warmer then this is the one for you. Put down the hash pipe and pick up the sensual hot drink of deliciousness!
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.
