UNUM

Le Secret du Marais  | Fragrance UNUM

In 2001, Filippo Sorcinelli, created LAVS, an atelier that realizes handmade liturgical vestments and other objects for the catholic cult. The first perfume extract of UNUM, LAVS, was inspired by the holy oils of the Mass of the Chrism. It was initially used to perfume the ornements of the sacred vestments. The LAVS atelier realized sacred vestments for, among others, the two last popes: Benedetto XVI and Francesco. 
It is a lifestyle brand, the result of a contamination between the arts. In 2014, in homage to the LAVS atelier, the first fragrance of the UNUM collection was born, as a sort of olfactory tailoring, followed by perfumes dedicated to the passions of their creator: gothic art, music, photography … the fog.
Filippo, born in Mondolfo (Italy), started his artistic journey with a Master of Arts in Fano and worked for many contemporary artists. In parallel, he studied music and specialized at the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome. He was an art director of many music festivals and participated in international exhibitions and art installations with among other, the Louvre Museum. He is co- founder and art director of UNUM perfumes.
I started with music, it was my first source of inspiration”. Filippo Sorcinelli is first of all a musician who finds his score in wood, in metal, the support doesn't matter, since it transmits emotions and gives beauty. The organ, his great passion is the true soundtrack of his life. “Today I can say that the organ has always been part of me. It has been a dazzling encounter since I was a child. Its sound is the one I can't live without. It is a concentration of research and the whole world seems to revolve energetically around those sounds. It is the only instrument that manages to enter the depths of the human soul with an unparalleled capacity for bodily emotional involvement. The organ is part of me even when it is silent, and I feed on it as if it were the seed of every art and every science, easily perceiving its mystery and its boundless being”

UNUM is a mix of avant-garde and classicism, born from the idea to make the sacred vestments of the LAVS atelier even more unique. But also to embrace a new, more elitist and wider public beyond the Vatican. Perfumes that allow for a renaissance of the Middle Age and the Gothic movement. Against the superficiality of the arts and life.
