Tiziana Terenzi - Luna Gold Collection - Arrakis
The journey through the constellations of Paolo and Tiziana's memories continues ... Arrakis, a binary system in the constellation of the dragon, was the inspiration for this exploration into the diverse spectrum of an olfactory pyramid. Just as the Arrakis system is made up of two opposing stars, the scent inspired by it has two distinct characters with contrasting intensity.
The scent opens with an explosion of bright, elegant citrus notes derived from the Sicilian Conca d'Oro, a fruit with a powerful and diffusive grapefruit character. This precious fruit is harvested from a tree known as the "Paradise Tree", famous for its exceptional properties. The grapefruit is accompanied by other citrus notes such as Calabrian bergamot and Sorrento lemon: two noble essences from the exclusive Terenzi library. This citrusy character folds effortlessly and smoothly into an ensemble of grassy herbaceous notes, characterized by the untamed spirit of thyme and rosemary. A duet of delicate, apricot-leather like Japanese osmanthus and a spicy suede-like Sicilian yellow saffron forms a gentle counterweight.
The heart is warm and exotically grassy, meadow-like, with an oily, smoky Tahitian vetiver root made rustic by a dry, aromatic Virginia tobacco leaf. The woody, resinous, leafy warmth and earthy sensuality of Indian red patchouli makes itself known here, bracketed by the sour smokiness of gaiac wood from the Antilles. A heady mélange of woods and oriental notes grounds it all, and enables the citrus notes to sing on for an incredible length of time, far past the normally short lives of their volatile oils. The smoky almond roughness of Brazilian mato grosso tonka beans, amber and musk bring up the rear, complemented by the intense and imposing power of the Cambodian oud. Arrakis is a fragrance of unexpected contrasts between light and dark, and carries within itself 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 exquisite detail, is based on the extensive knowledge and know-how of the trained jewelry designer Tiziana Terenzi. The compositions invite you to relive them again and again and are housed in exquisite gold-colored, deep black or bright red bottles. The gilded heavy lid of each fragrance shows the phases of the moon as depicted in a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci and underlines the preciousness of every creation in this collection.
