One of the most fascinating cities in the Bel Paese (Italy) is extraordinary Florence. Rich in history, its traditions and beauty are expressed in the city's alleyways and its breathtaking monuments. Every single stone and brick of every historic palace oozes with history and legends that capture the visitor from the very first moment. A magical September night, Paolo and Tiziana are in Florence with the whole family, including their grandparents, to discover this enchanting Renaissance city! Florence is a magical city, immediately capable of enrapturing and enveloping you in a whirlwind of emotions and contradictions. This place has an absolute and unique sense of beauty with which no other city in the world can compete. The beauty of its history pulses through its streets, enfolding visitors like a precious cloak During evening walks Paolo and Tiziana, hand in hand with their beloved grandfather Guglielmo, remain enraptured by the immeasurable beauty of the unique art works, enriched by the wonders that there are not enough adjectives to describe. The perfection of Michelangelo's David, Brunelleschi's dome or Giotto's bell tower! Climbing the long, impervious staircase of this tower, composing over 400 steps and dominating the entire city, Paolo and Tiziana reach the most evocative vista of the Italian Renaissance. Through children’s eyes they overlook the beauties of Florence, lost in wonder and amazement, while their learned grandfather tells the hidden stories of the artists who made Florence unique. All at once, in a cobalt blue sky illuminated by shining stars, an immense Red Moon arises, re-colouring the sky with its fiery pallor. The air fills with intense perfumes, magical scents rebounding off the Palaces of the city of the Purple Lily, enveloping Paolo and Tiziana like a warm mantle. In the distance, on the banks of the Arno river, high bonfires burn under the Ponte Vecchio, echoing the aroma escaping from Tuscan leather tanneries. All of a sudden, the two children are inebriated by the unforgettable perfume of the Spirit of Florence.
Spirito Fiorentino, now captured in an ampoule as red was that magical Moon, weaves its beneficial spell, bestowing fortune on those who understand and admire it. This perfume, like the Florentine Spirit, requires time to understand. Just as Florence does not disclose itself to everyone, only the chosen few, expert noses can fully enjoy this creation’s beauty. The essence opens with a graceful bouquet of flowers, the Purple Lily (symbol of Florence) and Jasmine emerge embraced by the power of Italian Saffron and the freshness of oranges. The head, at the same time both rich and precious, and refined and gentle, lies on an intense and precious heart. Both the elegance of Ylang Ylang and the refined seductiveness of Magnolia, emphasized by rare, aphrodisiac Ambergris and embraced by the ethereal sweetness of Lily of the Valley, make this dreamlike journey unforgettable. In the best Tuscan tradition, the entire creation is based on precious and unique woods. Together with precious Sandalwood, we find Birch and Musk from the Terenzi Library and the strength of the Tuscan Leather embraced by Oak Moss from the ever enchanted Appenines. In this precious ampoule, as red as passion, we find the thrill of emotion that only the eternal beauty of Florence can give. Spirito Fiorentino captures the spirit of Florence, which will only be revealed to those privileged few who have the soul to fully understand it.
