The journey through the constellations of the memories of Paolo and Tiziana continues ... Arrakis, a binary system in the constellation of the dragon, was the inspiration for this exploration in the different spectrum of an olfactory pyramid. Just as the Arrakis system is composed of two opposite stars, the perfume inspired by it has two distinct characters with contrasting intensity.
The perfume opens with an explosion of bright and elegant citrus notes derived from the Sicilian Conca d'Oro, a fruit with a powerful and diffused grapefruit character. This precious fruit is picked from a tree known as "Tree of Paradise", famous for its exceptional properties.
Grapefruit is accompanied by other citrus notes such as Calabria bergamot and Sorrento lemon: two noble essences of the exclusive Terenzi library. This citrus character bends effortlessly and smoothly into a set of herbaceous notes, characterized by the wild spirit of thyme and rosemary. A duet of delicate apricot skin such as Japanese osmanthus and a Sicilian yellow saffron similar to spicy suede form a slight counterweight.
The heart is warm and exotic, grass-like, lawn-like, with an oily and smoky Tahitian vetiver root rendered rustic by a dry and aromatic Virginia tobacco leaf. The woody, resinous, leafy heat and earthy sensuality of Indian red patchouli is known here, enclosed in the smoky smoke of the Gaiac wood of the Antilles. An intoxicating mélange of woods and oriental notes founds everything and allows the citrus notes to sing for an incredible amount of time, well beyond the normal short lives of their volatile oils. The smoked roughness of the almond of the big Brazilian tonka, the amber and the musk bring out the back, completed by the intense and imposing power of the Cambodian oud. Arrakis is a fragrance of unexpected contrasts between light and darkness and carries within it an irresistible seductive power.
The LUNA GOLD collection is an artistic extension of the Luna collection dedicated to the "Future of memories". The loving and thoughtful design of the bottles and the elaborate packaging with its refined details are based on the vast knowledge and know-how of the specialized jewelry designer Tiziana Terenzi. The compositions invite you to relive them again and again and are housed in exquisite gold, deep black or bright red bottles. The heavy golden lid of each fragrance shows the lunar phases represented in a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci and underlines the preciousness of each creation of this collection.
