THE COAST -TO COAST -TRAVELLING
40 Knots by Xerjoff JTC is theItalian yacht Club you leave from,destination: the Mediterranean, foran incredible course that Xerjoffhas studied, uniting the pleasureof navigation with the charm ofslices of life suspended in time.The feeling of freedom in a sailboatallows you to think about theMediterranean from an unusualperspective, temporal and olfactory.An undefined time, guided onlyby the wake of aromas that thisextraordinary sea highlights andmakes powerful in a jubilation ofcolour, light and mystery.The Mediterranean brush becomes
a palette declined into a thousandcolours that the sun brings out inan emotional and highly effectiveabstract.
Going nearer the coast, thenatural landscape seems to bemore and more defined and reveals the communities, thebrave fishermen's villages, whosedaily cadence is a multitude ofsmells, clearly delineated by theirsex, going from morning coffeeto laundry soap to the waves offlotsam that only local fishermencan recognise with their incrediblesense of smell.Only in the most remote, hardto find corners, where it's hardto orient yourself, protected byimpervious vegetation that is fullof wild flowers at sunset, can youfind the hidden abbeys in theircontemplative splendour.Here, in the heavy silence ofprayer, the perfume assumes aspiritually elevated significance.
It's impossible for Xerjoff not todistil all this Mediterranean wealthinto a perfume that immediatelyevokes natural beauty, vivacityand mysticism of a legendary sea,which nurtures and divides theclose fragrances in 40 Knots.
