V Canto: Is Love at First Scent Real?

Dear lovers of exotic and unique scents, welcome to another unusually fragrant story on the Mr.M blog. After fashion, interesting travels and life topics, I decided to share with you my opinion whether there is love at first scent.

The historical question is about true attraction and is there really love at first sight? Have you ever thought about the elements of fatal attraction? what can really affect mutual attraction? Is it maybe someone’s scent, voice, gestures or something else?

Scientists claim that there are theories of fatal attraction that can be based on the theory of scents. The sense of smell (olfaction) is one of the most important senses for the first impression. We use this sense consciously. For example, to smell a flower…

On an unconscious level, our brain relies heavily on smell. When we eat, we recognize by smell whether that food is good or not. Smell is one of the deciding factors when we fall in love. We are not even aware of how much information our brain receives every day using only the sense of smell.

December is a special month when the real power of attraction is celebrated and there is always the famous dilemma: What is the ideal gift for the New Year?

Of course, there are many ideas and people are different, so the interests are different. That is why it is important to buy an impressive gift that will always remind them of you and some beautiful moments. People say that a smile is the best gift, but the perfume and fragrant notes it carries are unforgettable.

I’m sure you remember the Italian perfume house Tiziana Terenzi, I wrote about their unusual perfumes, which with their unique and exotic fragrant notes win the hearts of people all over Europe and the world. If you want to be reminded of my story about Tiziana Terenzi’s fragrant world, visit the following link.

V Canto is a new line of perfumes from the family company Cereria Terenzi Evelino, behind which proudly stand Paolo Terenzi and Tiziana Terenzi, who are also the founders of the perfume brand Tiziana Terenzi. The “Divine Comedy” of the famous Dante Alighieri served as the inspiration for the founding of the V Canto line, and this unusual line of parfait uniquely describes the love for the homeland and the roots.

Inspired by the verses and places mentioned in the work itself, a line of unique exotic perfumes was created. The first perfumes were introduced in 2015, and since then, the Terenzi family has not ceased to delight with their incredible fragrant collections.

Why are V Canto perfumes unique? Each of the perfumes has the task of taking each person on an unusual fragrant journey with its exotic notes. Seductive fragrant notes are in an unusual way to evoke the story of human nature and become a faithful companion.

If you want to meet a person, perfume is a “mirror” of a soul because the scents we wear are a reflection of our character, they depict a human being in its purest form.

V Canto fragrant notes carry with them the beauty of medieval poetry, true art and the human soul.

V Canto line has a large number of perfumes and scented candles, but this time I tried to find the right notes in the “fragrant paradise” of the Terenzi family that define my character and sensibility.

This line has 5 seductive collections of fragrant notes that will capture your heart, some collections are named after colors from Divine Comedy such as Blue, Green and Red, while two collections have special names such as Love Leaves and Souls of the Castle.

V Canto Isotta, a fragrance that is easy to remember and hard to forget! The purple color symbolizes nobility, wisdom, creativity, mystery and dignity, and therefore the Isotta packaging proudly has this color.

How did this idyllic fragrant creation come about and who served as the inspiration? This creation was inspired by one of the most important “souls” who ever lived in Gradara castle, Princess Isotta, the wife of Prince Sigismondo. A beautiful, charming and intelligent fatal woman, her behavior, only posture and manners were not only gentle and refined but also energetic. She was a sophisticated strategist, with unique skills in the art of diplomacy and war.

Wise and determined, able to command armies and rule with her Prince, she was as strong and determined as the essence of the perfume itself, which she used as a purely artistic inspiration.

What are the ingredients that make V Canto Isotta perfume so special? Isotta is a unique harmony of specially selected fragrant notes and belongs to the collection of the Souls of the Castle.

  • Top notes: Sorrento Lemon, Sicilian Grapefruit, Japanese, Spearmint, Eucalyptus
  • Heart notes: Bulgarian Rose, African Geranium, Jasmine Absolute
  • Base notes: Cedarwood, Vanilla Bean, Tonka Bean, Musk

These fragrant notes leave a gentle and persistent mark on its wearer. Unisex fragrant creation inspired by refined elegance and royal beauty.

Another fragrant creation I have chosen to brighten up my winter days is V Canto Malatesta. This creation is inspired by the essence of nobility and strength characteristic of the Malatesta family, one of the most important families in the history of Italy. The fragrant story begins with a bouquet of Italian citrus, where Sicilian orange and Calabrian mandarin sprout, accentuated with royal notes of oris.

The Florentine lily, as it is also known, is an essential symbol of the Italian nobility, and these iris roots are as rare as they are precious. This royal head rests imperially on a carpet of martial intensity that beats as if to the sounds of drums. The freshness of Italian lavender includes the softness of jasmine, while the strength of cedar and Tuscan leather is accentuated by sparkling pink pepper.

Who was the inspiration for the Malatesta perfume? The Malatesta were a noble Italian family, among the most important and influential in the Middle Ages. The most important of this tribal lineage was Malatesta da Verucchio, who, thanks to his military and political abilities, took the name Mastin Vecchio (old bulldog). His eldest son, Giovanni Malatesta (known as Gianciotto, Lord of Gradara), unfortunately became notorious in the tragedy of Dante Alighieri in the Fifth Canto of Inferno. Dante tells a love story between Gianciotto’s older brother Paolo and his beautiful wife Francesca. Eternal love that still resonates for centuries from the castle walls along and across the valley.

The most famous of all Malatesta was without a doubt Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, with whom the family reached the peak of its fame and fortune. This creation is inspired by the essence of nobility and strength characteristic of the Malatesta family, one of the most important families in the history of Italy.

What are the ingredients that make V Canto Malatesta perfume so special? Malatesta is a special harmony of fragrant notes and also belongs to the collection of the Soul of the Castle.

  • Top notes: Sicilian Orange, Calabrian Mandarin, Lily of Florence, Orris
  • Heart notes: Italian Lavender, Jasmine, Cedar of Lebanon, Pink Pepper, Tuscan Leather
  • Base notes: Musk, Vanilla Bean, Cambodian Oudh, Agarwood, Red Patchouli

The basis of this creation lies in the royal strength and elegance, in which an alliance of precious trees emerges, such as Cambodian oudh, agarwood and Indian red patchouli accented with vanilla and musk berries. An elegant and seductive creation that sums up the spirit of the kingdom in just one drop of perfume.

Tiziana Terenzi: Passion for Creation, Crafts and Candles

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new post on Mr. M blog! Today, through fragrant notes, we will feel the beauty and splendor of Italy, which many consider to be the cradle of hedonism. Italy is a country that is known for fashion, craftsmanship, exceptional cuisine, wines, but also for making quality perfumes.

People say that people are close when they know their favorite fragrant notes and perfume is an ideal gift that reminds a person that they are loved and each fragrant note carries with it a certain association.

Tiziana Terenzi is an Italian family brand, a passion that has been maintained for three generations, where the love for creating and preserving crafts is something that makes this brand special. Tiziana and Paolo Terenzi decided to create a fragrant kingdom as a tribute to their father.

The inspiration for their fragrant creations is found in nature, fire, the flame of the candles, for which this brand has gained world fame. The hypnotic power and beauty of fire are always present in our lives, connecting us with great symbolic power with emotions.

Tiziana Terenzi is not just a perfume, but a true journey through emotions and memories without artistic compromises. Fragrant notes are a display of the true essence of life, including all its imperfections, tensions, inconsistencies, everything that makes life simply beautiful.

The focus is on unique creations, natural and priceless raw materials and carefully selected, because every single creation that leaves the space of the Tiziana Terenzi brand factory is a “child” of this fragrant family.

Tiziana Terenzi perfumes cannot be worn as an ordinary piece of clothing, these fragrant notes are for those people who like to indulge and allow themselves to explore some new dimensions of life, fearlessly experiencing its essence to the core. These perfumes are complex creations that are not fully revealed, they need to be felt and enjoy the beauty of the scent.

To experience a perfume with this type of fragrant structure, it takes time, patience, perseverance and wisdom. These are perfumes that do not really reveal their essence and purpose to anyone.

Who is behind this brand? As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, this fragrant realm is a story about one family.

Tiziana Terenzi, the creative director of the brand, is a professor of applied art and design. In her long career, she has had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous top jewelry brands. Her sophistication and love for “extraordinary elegance” are reflected in the extraordinary craftsmanship details of every Tiziana Terenzi perfume.

Each of the perfumes contains details of 24-carat gold, hand-made Italian glass, details of wood from rare species from the forests of Italy and leather details of the highest quality Italian leather. She achieved great success with his special fragrant collection Luna, where she expressed her skills and knowledge through lids that represent real masterpieces.

Paolo Terenzi is an extremely talented and respected Italian perfumer. An artist in his work, very unconventional, his philosophy was created to “compose beauty”. His biography is as unique as his fragrant masterpieces: a professional musician, a law graduate and a philosopher who studies chemistry and physics with unlimited imagination and a special sensibility.

Mr. Terenzi works exclusively with natural raw materials, which he collected personally on his travels around the world. In his unusual and unique collection, he uses about 300 most precious notes that he mixes to create extremely complex and sophisticated rich perfume structures.

He has collaborated with many well-known international fashion houses for years, but together with Tiziana Terenzi, he founded his own brand.

Today I will present you two perfumes from their offer: Orionis and Orion.

Orionis is a perfume from the Assoluto special collection. Assoluto is a collection created from the fire of memories and recollections, which warms and illuminates the Luna collection, inspired by mixed moments of life, precious pieces of mosaics of stars and a magical web of fantasy.

How to describe the Assoluto collection? A dreamy mix of knowledge and magic of real experiences where the result is the creation of precious drops that are reserved for people with refined taste. Stylistic perfection is achieved by handmade Italian jewelry that adorns these rare and valuable perfumes.

The perfumes that make up this collection in addition to the perfumes you can see in today’s post are: Tyl, Adhil, Dubhe, Velorum, Alioth, Lyncis.

What are the ingredients that make Tiziana Terenzi Orionis perfume so special?

  • Top notes: Saffron and Incense

With its rare oils, scarce essences and priceless molecules, Orionis is a homage to one of the brightest stars in the constellation Orion, which is a true masterpiece of this Italian luxury art perfumery.

Another perfume that won my heart is Orion, a perfume that belongs to the exclusive Luna collection, inspired by the beauty of miracles.

After more than twenty years of patient and dedicated work on finding and storing rare ingredients, the Tiziana Terenzi brand has presented the exceptional perfumes that make up this special Luna collection.
