Like an astonishing evocative symphony, Tambour Sacre, Rubini’s second fragrance, translates the sensual yet mystic impetus of African rhythms. Perfumer, Cristiano Canali gives his interpretation of this sound with the facets of Calabrian bergamot and cardamom vibrating thanks to the spiciness of white pepper in a dance as charming as the warm embrace of hazelnut.
The obscure notes of roasted coffee hammer over a candid pentagram of tuberoses in a primordial, almost erotic counterpoint, growing measure after measure with the intoxicating warmth of cinnamon. The orchestral carpet of sandalwood and balsams add volume; the spiritual depth of myrrh from Somalia with its iridescent vapors and the sumptuousness of benzoin joined by tonka bean resonate in a gourmand oriental charming like the enigmas of the Queen of Sheba. Just like Fundamental, the celebrated first release from Rubini, Tambour Sacre is a genuine, one of a kind fragrance that compares to no other we’ve experienced.
Iroka, a sacred tree to many African populations, is wood traditionally used to build houses and to make musical instruments, drums included. Only made out of recycled wood, each item is a numbered unique artisanal piece, executed entirely by hand to house the pure rhythmic and magnetic harmony of Tambour Sacre.
Product Designer, Francesca Gotti translates Rubini’s brand DNA into iconic architectural packaging. Two solid shells promise to protect and preserve an intimate and personal Italian experience. The shells are a visual embodiment of the layers of memory, playing on the combination of full and dense materials with others more fragile and light. A glimpse through the glass constructs a vision to form a foundation with a free and coherent future. The search for a form, its imperfect materials, the experimental work. All ideal conditions to make a dream come true.
Tambour Sacre is Exclusively Available at Twisted Lily in the US.
