The inspiration for Superiore was the description of the creator of the cologne in 1708. Johann Maria Farina wrote to his brother: “I came across a scent that reminds me of a spring morning in Italy, with mountain narcissus and orange blossoms just after the rain, it gives me freshness, strengthens my senses and imagination.”
Colognes were created at a time when heavy fragrances reigned supreme, which were supposed to cover sweat and other unpleasant smells. The following ruled undivided: ambergris, musk and cybet. All the great rulers of the world at that time used cologne. Frederick the Great, Napoleon, Stanisław August Poniatowski and Emperor William I, all used cologne.
The cologne, due to its composition and the use of very delicate, volatile citrus and floral notes, evaporated very quickly. They had to be reapplied constantly. Also, due to its low concentration, the perfumes were very unstable. It is from this single scent that a whole range of low-concentration perfumes, called colognes from then on, took their name.
When we started working on our perfumes, we saw that we had to start with a classic fragrance. At the same time, we wanted to create our interpretation of it, with the concentration of real perfumes. At the same time, only and exclusively based on natural raw materials.
Eau de Cologne, as the most popular and most commercially successful perfume in the history of perfumery, has become the obvious choice for us. This is how the Cologne Superiore was born.
We have managed to create a fragrance that not only delights with its freshness, but also brings to mind the smell of the beach and sea salt. To finally turn into the sweetness of resin and citrus. It is a fragrance that evokes the freshness of the Italian morning, the scent of summer.
