Terroni is inspired by the Southerners of Italy (Terroni is a derogatory term meaning “Southerner’s” in Italian) – fiery, intense and earthy. The terrain in the south was created by a burning volcanic lava swallowing the surface underneath. “There’s something powerful and fulfilling about putting your hands in the soil, the feeling that you’ve got all of the roots in your hands and knowing that the Earth belongs to all of us”. In order to develop a natural beauty one needs to bind with traditions and grow strong roots to maintain the true light of Self. The roots play a strong part in the growth and development of a character. This fragrance encourages us to look inside and think about our roots, where we have come from and how that can shape and makes us who we are today.
Terroni is, foremost, a fragrance that celebrates the earth in all of its power. This fragrance is dedicated to all of the people from the south who seem to be rooted in tradition, family, food and most importantly earth and fire. Vincenzo (Alessandro’s grandfather) was from the south of Italy; he always had his hands in the dirt/earth fertilizing the garden.
Inspired by the molten lava that bubbles beneath the earth’s surface, Terroni is an intense, fiery fragrance for those with passion at their roots. Bursting with ferocious doses of spice, smoke, earth and deep, musky woods, Terroni is an explosive fragrance with a lid made of the volcanic ash that Gaultieri sites in his inspiration.
HOW IT WEARS
OK, so Terroni is intense (in the best possible way)! 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 a signature perfume that people will stop to ask about on the street because it has incredible projection as well as lasting power. It’s smoky and warmly resinous and settles beautifully on the skin. A show stopper!
We love the warmth and the smoky intensity of Terroni. It smells how we would imagine an erupting volcano would smell – it’s all tar, smoke, resins and rich warm woods!
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.
