Notre-Dame

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

moments: the triggering event, the water on the stones

and the Essence that remains.

Notre-Dame Cathedral is undoubtedly one of the most

known and visited sacred buildings in the world.

Filippo had the privilege of being able to access places

closed to tourism and to grasp unexpected images, smells

and virtues.

But what is the Essence of the Cathedral? We are

immediately led to believe that it has only a strong

smell of incense.

But nothing more incomplete!

The smell of Notre-Dame is not incense.

It is today that “moment of smoke” that affects history.

It is also water that overflows from the stones, which

flows down the sides of the organ.

It is today the gash of the vaults that brings light

from the naked sky. It is the smell of uninterrupted

life, of the soul not affected,

it is a golden cross that spurts.

It is the Truth that advances.

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"

painted and signed directly by Filippo Sorcinelli with

symbols, colors and stylistic elements attributable to

the Cathedral of Paris: four real small "paintings",

which lead back to a single true and exclusive work of

art.
