It took Thomas De Monaco three years to develop his first scent. Carefully decanted by hand into 1,400 numbered 50 ml flacons, it was then launched as a limited edition. In 2023, following another two years’ of finetuning the ingredients, Raw Gold will be available in refillable 100 ml bottles. Thomas is currently working on three further fragrances which will all undergo the same maturation process. In close collaboration with international perfumers, Thomas De Monaco’s studio is developing fresh disruptive approaches which transcend established norms and redefine the world of scent. To create scents of outstanding density, Thomas De Monaco exclusively uses the highest quality raw materials and superior scent molecules. With the ephemeral nature of the fragrances’ top notes suspended, the perfumes have a strong sillage and linger on the body with an impressive longevity. Not one to talk a lot about individual ingredients, Thomas De Monaco is all about the holistic effect of the scent and its interpersonal impact. Rather than taking their inspiration from certain experiences or images, his perfumes poetically reflect specific emotional eras.
Although, for a number of years now Thomas De Monaco has been investing in olfactory experiments and their potential to suffuse the imaginary byways of the brain with impressive images, the conceptional approach to his first scent has taken the opposite direction.Thomas De Monaco
