LUCI ED OMBRE
Luci ed Ombre is the whisper in the shadows that embroiders edges of dark and uncertain remnants of light.
The fragrance unveils in stages, that the nose himself described as “Light, Chiaroscuro, and Dark notes”. In reality, the mood and overall development of Luci Ed Ombre is perhaps more complex than this might suggest. Chiaroscuro is a word that suggests romantic shadowed darkness and the kind of glow from a single candle or a low wattage bulb swinging in silence.
In the opening, the “light” notes are characterized by ginger, so compelling, razor clean and juicy. Such a fickle note to work with, often too foodie and obvious, ginger has been nearly killed by its association with lemon in fruit teas. The scent can be really be quite flu remedy sickly. Here though, Giuseppe employs ginger as a light and damp earthy citrus, its unique timbre needed to temper the white florals that open around it. Without it, the tuberose and jasmine would shriek like impatient sopranos.
In the heart, a gentle, watery tuberose
Light notes: Incense. “Cradle and Karma of soaring light”.
Chiaroscuros: Ginger, Tuberose, Jasmine, Moss. “In the heart of the Opera, the emotional continuum of the human being, between desire and perpetual quest of oneself”.
Dark notes: Incense, Cedarwood, Patchouli. “Wounded body, human lymph, deep and restless truth”.
