Pineider history begins in Florence in 1774, where Francesco Pineider opens his first shop. Soon the name of Pineider had spread across Europe, becoming synonymous with the words style, quality, and craftsmanship. Some say that even Napoleon was a patron.
In the 20th century, Pineider began to also make fine leather accessories and stationary, great favorites of international style ambassadors such as Gabriele D'Annunzio, Luigi Pirandello and Elizabeth Taylor. Today, Pineider stands for 100% Italian craftsmanship with a global flair.
The collection of perfumes from this historic house pays testament to its extraordinary heritage and style. Each perfume in the range comes packaged in an exclusive bottle and box whose materials have been hand-selected to represent the best Italy has to offer in the way of raw materials such as leather and glass.
The perfumer behind the fragrances of the Pineider house is the renowned Luca Maffei. Of his work on this collection, he said that “From the beginning there was a strong desire to convey in a decisive manner all the force of the Italian brand, so I chose to develop themes around the great scents of my country using all the valuable raw materials that grow in Italy”.
The idea is to make perfumes that pay respect to the great history and cultural heritage of Italy, and yet also fit into our idea of modern life as it is now. By uniting the classic natural raw materials of Italy with modern synthetics and aromachemicals, Luca has availed himself of a full and rich palette with which to create these scents.
