Astrophil and Stella
Extrait de Parfum 50 ml
A Perfume by Miguel Matos
In a whirlwind of history and myth, a perfume dances between the ancient secrets of the Minoan civilisation and the delights of Mediterranean fruits. Inspired by the vestiges of a distant time, its aroma winds like a golden thread through the fingers of an artist, painting a timeless fresco. The essence of great epochs, intricate labyrinths and wind-whispered mysteries can be felt in the air. Fruity notes rise like the columns of a forgotten temple, while the sweet aroma of orange rises like an offering to the Gods. A gentle song resonates in the atmosphere, evoking the love and fertility of ancient Crete.
Woven silk threads compose a symphony that resonates in the soul. Explore the lush gardens of the Palace of Knossos, where every step awakens the spirit. The sweetness of ripe figs blends with the intensity of roses, while ambergris and sandalwood reveal age-old secrets. Sweet Pulp is an invitation to plunge into the atmosphere of a distant past, to discover the beauty hidden among legends, and to embrace a bright future.
