ORTO PARISI is a fragrance project by Alessandro Gualtieri. “The parts of the body that carry more smell are those where more soul is collected” he says in his ‘manifesto’, which continues: “The strong smells have become unpleasant to us because the excess of soul is intolerable to the extent that our innate animalism is repressed and isolated from civilization.”
Gualtieri describes the ORTO PARISI collection as his garden, which he has planted fertilized, cultivated – and from which he now harvests. ORTO PARISI invites us to experience our body as a garden, its smells the true mirror of our soul.
