extrait de parfum 100_ml
The “délire de voyage” collection is enriched with the
second fragrance, dedicated and inspired by the terrible
event of the fire of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris,
which took place on April 15, 2019.
However, the exhortation is not to stop on that date,
but to open up the true Essence to the world.
In the new extrait de parfum Filippo Sorcinelli (known
as “the tailor of the popes”) wanted to set three main

life, of the soul not affected,

Notre-Dame 15.4.2019, the true essence, will be a small
support to the Maitrise, the ensemble of singers and
musicians who guard the priceless heritage of the Sacred
Music of the Cathedral.
The proceeds from sales will in fact be donated to the
association of “Musique Sacrée”, to help to continue its
business and mission, currently outside its own "home".
As always, to the packaging is given special attention:
the bottle cap is a burnt wood monolith, to evoke the
tragic moment of the fire, on which the name of the
fragrance is nailed.
At the opening, the characteristic four falling "wings"
