Inspired by the molten lava that bubbles beneath the earth's surface and has shaped the once-volcanic terrain of southern Italy, Terroni is an intense, fiery fragrance for those with passion for their roots. There's something powerful and fulfilling about putting your hands in the soil, the sense of belonging to the Earth- and Terroni is, foremost, a fragrance that celebrates that earth in all of its power.

Orto Parisi is the latest line of perfumes by Italian perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri, alias "the crazy nose" (and founder of Nasomatto). Orto Parisi states that our body is experienced like a garden, and its smells are a true mirror of our soul.
"The parts of the body that carry more smell are those where more soul is collected. The strong smells have become unpleasant to us, because the excess of soul is intolarable to the extent that our innate animalism is repressed and breaking from civilisation. This project is my garden I have planted, fertilized, cultivated, and harvested. Orto Parisi states that our body is experienced like a garden, and its smells are a true mirror of our soul."
