Inspired by Pesatori’s work, Stefania Squeglia began the remarkable project of Nettuno, an astrological perfume. Eternally fascinated by the mysterious magic of astrology, Squeglia evokes the astrological significance of Neptune, which traditionally represents artistic energies, transformational powers, freedom, spirituality and fluidity. Nettuno is a limitless substance mirroring our own infinite natures. Like our reflections, we see ourselves through Nettuno but simultaneously acknowledge all that is invisible within us. A hazy memory of flying through the galaxy of the life.
Nettuno is a fragrant mirror, the access point to your internal Neptunian calendar. A duality characterizes this layered fragrance, wherein richer florals meld effortlessly with delicate savory elements. The astral power of flowers is invoked through a meaty, gourmand rose, made buoyant and dewy by delicate cyclamen. The comforting, magical powder of dusty iris is augmented by piquant pink peppercorn, the cool spice of nutmeg and the dazzling shimmer of blue ginger. Musks and leather recreate our sense of earth, vetiver shooting through this dense, soil-like dim like an errant, symbolic star.
The creative process of Nettuno was supported by Stefania’s long-time friend and Mendittorosa collaborator Jakub Piotrowicz, a fragrance expert and co-founder of Persefume magazine. Visuals for Nettuno were created by Tresor Prijs – model, fragrance writer and inspirational figure, a muse who magnificently exemplifies Nettuno’s dual nature.
