El perfum éThe perfume is a tool full of sensations, not directly be involved in areas where emotions come to the surface . That's why in 2009 I started this journey , to find out how to create and use the perfume as a link with the different cultural and artisitc areas , using its unique language.

 

MediterràniaSens was born as the union of Josep Delgado and the creative perfume of El Jardí Secret .
The eighteen Mediterranean pictures, were the inspiration source to create each of the initial perfumes . Those fragrances rather than trying to translate the paintings, are purely an expressions of my own perception .

The five perfumes that I have chosen for this limited edition, remaining away from the topic of “pleasant scent” , to play the role of “Storyteller”.

"Et veig Mar" by Josep Delgado
“"Et veig Mar" (I See you Sea)” by Josep Delgado

Two boats "I see" and "sea" can not stop looking at the blue horizon , the source of its injuries..

 

Boira al Port de Josep Delgado
“"Boira al Port" (Fog in the port)” by Josep Delgado

Humidity and dense air, a little bit of whisky, maybe Malta , on a rancid wood , dripping in calm· waters.

 

Brillant decadència de Josep Delgado
“Brillant decadència (Brilliant decadence) ” by Josep Delgado

Clean air, silence , the wreckage of the ship .

Initially the feeling as few colors and scents , but as you look better, you notice the rest of an abandoned building, and the stagnant waters breaking the sweetness.

La darrera góndola de Josep Delgado
“La darrera góndola (The last gondola)” by Josep Delgado

Coming back from the calm , close the eyes and listen to the sound of the “Serenissima“ harbours , where precious bundles of Oriental goods , are stacked in front of the rich merchants.

La porta del desert de Josep Delgado
“"La porta del desert" (The gate of the desert)” by Josep Delgado

Between the sea and the dunes , behind the door , lies kindly the sun in the flowery garden , where the dust goes away in the fountain waters and hunger hides behind a honey cake.
