Viride means ‘green’ in Latin, however this scent is so much more than only a green scent. Inspired by one of Alessandro’s favourite countries to travel to, Yemen. Alessandro was inspired by the tradition of the men and women of Yemen decorating themselves in green herbs and foliage as part of a ritual to attract a partner. This is the scent of virility. Viride is a rich and woody scent that smells like you are deep in a forest, the scent of all of your surroundings – the gorgeous tall trees, the smell of the green foliage, the wild herbs covering the ground. Viride is a woody, mossy fragrance with a sexy resinous depth on the skin.
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! Viride has great projection and lasts incredibly on the skin. We love the aromatic heart yet it has a rich and earthy base that holds beautifully throughout the day, giving the fragrance a complex depth.
Viride is such a wonderful scent for transcending the seasons – it gives us fresh aromatics, then green coolness and warm resins for depth. We love the contradictions of this fragrance and the complexity to the blend.
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.
