Smoldering and simply stunning, Terroni is a haze that focuses and intensifies our perspective, all the while rooting us firmly in Southern Italy. Terrone (an evolving epithet) connotes Southern Italians and their history of working the land; it’s a word that can be used to provoke or persecute, as much as to personify a mythic swathe of land. Whatever its etymology, Terroni makes us feel like we’re buried up to our elbows in ash, sparkling soil and the dulcet, chalky substance that lies beneath earth. The seventh fragrance of Orto Parisi, Terroni, created by Alessandro Gualtieri. Terroni takes inspiration from the roots and volcanic land around Mount Vesuvius located on the Gulf of Naples in Campania, Italy. Its fiery hue and charred-like cap evoke Mount Vesuvius, best known for its eruption in AD 79 in which the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were destroyed. Earthy, intense, and deep, this seductive and addictive oriental fragrance engineers spice, musk and sweetness to create an alluring, long lasting and somewhat threatening wonder. The attitude of “Don’t Mess With Me” never smelt or looked so beautiful.
