The house of Tiziana Terenzi, known for its scented candles, presents its first Extrait de Parfum line in 2012. The line is inspired by fire with four different experiences of journey. “The hypnotic power and beauty of fire are always present in our lives, connecting us with great symbolic power to our emotions and to all of creation. The four new perfumes embody the four stages of a journey consumed by fire. In fire, every emotion, every image, every fragrance comes to life and exists almost independently from our thoughts. Our perfumes capture the indomitable spirit of our emotions. The creation of these perfume essences comes from the never-ending quest to depict and capture emotions. These perfumes embody the powerful Faustian desire to try to hold on to a beautiful moment, and the constant exploration of the “self and the non-self”. The fragrances are named XIX March, Ecstasy, Gold Rose Oudh and White Fire. The ones that have “black soul” are Gold Rose Oudh and White Fire and are labeled with leather label, while the ones with “white soul”, labeled with wood, are XIX March and Ecstasy.
XIX March is inspired by La Focarina di S. Giuseppe, the night on 18th march when traditionally a bong fire is build to burn up twigs and bushes winter leftover and welcome the spring. “The air is filled with intense smells: fresh and new, yet nevertheless ancient.”
