A splash of perfume with Mediterranean´s undertones
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”.
Two boats "I see" and "sea" can not stop looking at the blue horizon , the source of its injuries..
Humidity and dense air, a little bit of whisky, maybe Malta , on a rancid wood , dripping in calm· waters.
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.
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.
