(50ml Extrait de Parfum)
Al Contrario tells of the return journey, the homecoming, a moment of nostalgia, of all the wonders that lie behind us. At the same time, it also tells of a heart filled with anticipation of seeing our loved ones again. As we slowly approach our home, the places become more familiar and friendly. Once arrived, love and a welcoming fire in the fireplace warm our hearts and set the pace for tales of adventures just experienced. Al Contrario is an evocative perfume, equal to the familiar feeling of the traveller who has just arrived. It was created on a refined balance, an almost nostalgic sense of longing, somewhere between the sweetness of vanilla and the contrast of malt and cocoa fruit. Graceful yet profound, this fragrance reflects the stimulating presence of exquisite woods, such as ebony, where its roots lie.
