From the infusion in alcohol of resins, woods, roots and metals, Antonio Gardoni creates some of the solvents he uses to dissolve rare and high quality raw ingredients found on his trips. From steam distillation he extracts the essential oils to create odors and fragrances. He works at night when the light doesn’t adulterate the chemicals and when the smells of the day disappear to leave space to new experiments of shadows. Antonio Gardoni creates contemporary fragrances with ancient techniques and modern intuitions. From architecture and design he learned how to build by layers and to think by subtraction. His perfumes are rooms to discover with their mood, texture, light and color.
To celebrate their new musical pairing Duo, lead singer of acclaimed band The Kooks, Luke Pritchard and his singer-songwriter wife Ellie Rose have joined forces with world renowned perfumer Antonio Gardoni of Bogue Profumo to create LiTA, a stunning unisex perfume in a collaboration of scent and sound.Bogue Profumo
Maai is a stunning accomplishment in modern perfumery as it marries the very best of old-school chypre glamour and bold animalics with a refined elegance and smoothness. It opens with a burst of incredibly mossy greenness, fused with roses, jasmine, and green tuberose, all sprinkled with a transparent veil of golden, glittering aldehydes.Bogue Profumo
A dense, tropical water blasts out of DOULEUR!2, is it cucumber or melon? Amplified by camphorous tea tree and a double dose of sweet, candied mint. Underneath this, a hazy, lactonic impression of a white floral, that doesn’t quite read as jasmine, or ylang, but some- thing completely new.Bogue Profumo
