V Canto, disguised as sensual perfumes, we will meet ancestral poisons, which will trap you like the poisons they emulate.
V Canto is inspired by the most beautiful love story ever written, the love for true origins, for deep roots and for the land of one’s birth. In fact, for over 700 years, the Terenzi family has lived near the castle of Gradara, one of the most suggestive castles in Italy. Even the supreme Dante Alighieri dedicated to this magical place a song of his Comedy, the song of Paolo and Francesca, immortal figures sculpted by immortal verses.
Our creations are born of these views and these verses. The Blue collection encapsulates poetry and medieval history made of passion and love, sins and virtues, vices and humanity. With the Red & Green collection, Paolo and Tiziana’s art is enriched with new stories inspired by the figure of Lucrethia Borgia, resident and proud queen of the Castle of V Canto. Finally, the Foglie d’Amore collection, made with the ancient technique of gold and silver leaf, applied by hand to make each bottle a unique and inimitable creation.
V Canto: love in all its forms and facets, because with love anything is possible.
Cyanide, easily confused with cooking salt crystals thanks to its seemingly harmless appearance, was very practical and effective as a poison. Terrifyingly easy to camouflage as appetizing salt its effects are lethal. In fact, it could easily be confused with salt to flavour delicious “deadly” dishes for a last supper and it was very easy to transport, hidden in the ingenious secret compartment in Lucrezia’s famous ring.
It was a trusted friend who knew how to serve the hypnotic beauty of the wonderous Lady, just as this creation will enchant and hypnotize those who draw near to it. A seductive and bewitching potion, with an apparently harmless charm, capable of releasing its fragrance like a magical and enchanted aura.
The bouquet opens with the sweetness of exotic fruits, where echoes of Papaya are intertwined with Mango and Maracuja is enhanced by the sweetness of pineapple and the joyful scent of Neroli.
The heart welcomes this radiant head and opens into a sinuous and captivating embrace where the charm of white water lily embraces the strength of Narcissus and the elegance of Lily of the valley, all lying on a bed of inebriating roses.
The creation’s secret inspiration is founded on the freshness of Oak moss, precious Patchouli and Sandalwood, softened by the seductiveness of Tuscan leather and the warm Cashmere. The seductive force of this creation will echo on the breeze long after you have passed by.
