Culti Milano, the celebrated Italian house that brings us delicious spray perfume and diffusers for the home, also makes beautiful scents to wear. These are simple, refined fragrance scents characterized by a citrus base embellished with surprising and at times spectacular notes. They can be worn alone or combined together into your own personal perfume. The master perfumers at Culti Milano drew their inspiration from the thousands of aromas found throughout the landscapes of italy from north to south. These Aquae di Profumo or perfume waters offer up a harmonious set of nuances and offer a genuine journey for the senses. And a perfect way to lighten up the summer.
Rosa Pura is floral and delicate, a scent that evokes the blooms of May in the luxurious Renaissance gardens of the great Italian mansions. Meanwhile Pepe Raro as its name implies is a spicy scent bursting with the freshness of bergamot, which grows in the region of Reggio di Calabria in southern Italy, and which is livened up with pink pepper and juniper. Tabacco Assoluto is a strong scent with the bergamot accompanied by incense and a heart of tobacco, cistus — a fragrant garden flower — and cashmere wood. Who doesn’t love the smell of geraniums especially when it comes drifting over to your terrace on Lake Cuomo. Geranio Imperiale brings together a heart of geranium and rose with spicy notes of pepper and cardamom. And Acqua Leggera is a citrus composition preciously enhanced with aromatic essences.
The Aquae are proffered in elegant 100ml transparent bottles screen-printed in gold. They are available exclusively on the e-shop of the house’s website and at the Italian Culti House in Milan, Turin, Forte dei Marmi, Rome, Naples and Bari.
The Culti Milano adventure began over 30 years ago when Alessandro Agrati had an intuition that spaces and objects might have their own scent, too. He then embarked upon his own research into the link between the design world and the world of the senses. The house pioneered the system of rattan sticks to diffuse home scents in a natural, lasting way.
