Perfume is an expression of art, it speaks to the deepest part of us. He questions us, leading to an endless journey.
It tells of harmony and is a hymn to purity. Tells of Annone, his albino being. And for this it is Candor.
Don't try to decipher it, but enjoy it without asking yourself anything. Because this is how you meet the absolute.
A is persistent and elusive, ethereal and concrete at the same time.
It is the perfume that represents the mystery of white, which has no color, and which in itself contains all the colors of the rainbow. More than a perfume A is a profoundly mystical and intimate experience.
Inspired by an extraordinary white elephant, it takes its rarity, power and grace from it. Protagonist of the Renaissance stories related to Raffaello the elephant Annone it conquered the heart of the Pope and of all of Rome in the 500th century. It will be so for this fragrance, with animal tones and delicate at the same time, which is unique and difficult to forget.
It is a fragrance that stands out, with unexpected notes of mango, iris and saffron, which rest on a powerful and very modern heart of oud and amber. A perfume that speaks of the East with great elegance.
The skies of the great Renaissance painters never stopped capturing the world: they evoked serenity, a sense of freedom and a mystical feeling. A fragrance that seeks a vertical vision between the earthly and the divine, between the earth and the sky, between the natural and the mystical. A crescendo of incense with a fresh and free base, in other words, blue. Così Blu. The fragrance moves in a dialogue between very rare incense and very precious musk. The result is a mystical bouquet that is at the same time warm and welcoming. Precious woods and a very light fruity touch complete a unique and refined accord.
Born in 2020 to celebrate the 500th anniversary anniversario di Raffaello, Anniversario is an elegant and persistent fragrance, which evokes the idea of a Californian cake. In smelling it, the nose tries to distinguish the fruity tones that emerge in the first place, while the imagination crosses the lively color of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. This sensation is enveloped by an intoxicating warm and amber composition, almost exotic, which pervades us and is difficult to forget. Fragrance characterized by top notes, which refer to red fruits: Strawberry, Blueberry, with Coconut and Peach. A real joyful triumph to evoke the euphoria of a festive event. A note of saffron does not escape the opening of the composition. At the heart of the perfume are placed the Rose, the Jasmine and the Heliotrope, which give an oriental touch. On the bottom reveal Gray Amber, Vanilla, Sandalwood and White Musk, which are mixed with a rare Patchouli from the Gayo region north of Sumatra and a light touch of Cambodian-Thai Oud from the Trat region, to give overall a particular, marked and persistent character.
Freshness and mystery. A fragrance with citrus and sparkling tones, intense and persistent, which tells the energy of the discovery of something extraordinary ... amazement, power and mystery!

It is the evocation of when, in 1500, the district of Trastevere it was considered "the oven of Rome" and was teeming with bakeries and young girls. Let's imagine one walking slowly through the narrow streets of the neighborhood, and the scents of sweets and bread come out from the small windows. Olfactory, warm, gourmand construction: it moves around the tones of Davana (Artemisia Pallens), whose taste characteristics of licorice and coffee are enhanced here by tones of chestnuts and vanilla. A truly extraordinary jasmine accompanies the bouquet.
There are elements that we consider aphrodisiacs, they are so engaging and penetrating. This is the case for chocolate and truffles, the main elements of this fragrance, where, by communicating with each other, they create unexplored agreements so as to lead the initial gustatory path towards an unexpected elegance. Sublime expression of sweetness and desire, the distinctive characters of every love story. Dark chocolate, enhanced with the precious taste of white truffle. A complex and fascinating heart of hazelnut, honey, vanilla, strawberry and plum over a base of tonka bean and white musk. Hidden and elegant flowers, almost imperceptible among the heart notes, an incredible concentration of seduction!
He is a very refined and eclectic genius, at the same time strong and concrete. Profile of an artist who has made elegance the hallmark of his work. The grace of his stroke has left an indelible mark on the history of art. Raffaello he is an attractive, elegant and passionate man who has fully lived his love story. The processing of the fragrance moves on two levels: a pure absinthe distillate and a mix of pepper, leather, teak wood and tonka bean. On the first level the artist and its vibrations (absinthe), the second one tells of its vigor (leather, pepper, teak and tonka), with a scent in the background that recalls color pigments.

A sensual woman who is difficult to resist. Raffaello he discovers it and raises it to a myth. She seduces him with the incredible smell of her skin. Can a very famous artist who frequents high society fall in love with a village girl? Yes, if it has the charm and scent of Margherita. The processing of the fragrance revolves around the most sensual of feminine perfumes: tuberose, a flower so seductive that in the 500th century it seems to be forbidden for girls to use it. Narcissus, jasmine and amber make up this enveloping and deep bouquet.

It is the olfactory photo of a place, il giardino di Trastevere, secret meeting place of Raffaello and Margherita. Wet walls and ivy, an old fruit tree, in the distance a flowery bouquet and the rarefaction of the scent of burnt wood from the oven.
A fragrance with a green and musky soul where the notes of vetiver are blending with wood wrapped in ivy. A slight hint of fruit tells of an old pear tree.

It is the story of a night of love and passion, where two bodies come together one last time and forever. Two souls who promise each other eternal love, unrelated to time. A unique blend of feelings and smells. In the fragrance, green notes and distant hints of citrus are only the prelude to what will arrive shortly thereafter: a brilliant mix of oud, amber, which almost seems to merge with the smell of the skin. To tell a passion that is consumed and then rarefied towards the sky and in the air.
Fresh and passionate notes at the same time, or perhaps one after the other.

The fragrance, created exclusively at the request of Harrods (UK), evokes the ancestral olfactory memory that Raffaello he has kept his childhood from when, in order to pursue his artistic vocation, he had to leave the city of Urbino. In the memory the typical gustatory tones of a kitchen on holidays are mixed, with the notes of tempera and canvases of the father's workshop.
The result is an intense composition with vague oriental scents, which represents the strength of a deep feeling. Intriguing, particular, elegant. The taste notes are declined in a truly original way with oriental nuances. A bouquet of red fruits and spices that interacts until it merges with milk, saffron and patchouli. All on a bed of musk, vanilla and warm woods.
We wanted to give a fragrance to Raffaello, to the artist, to the genius, to his extraordinary meticulousness, to his innate elegance.
At the same time we wanted to tell the profound strength that comes from beauty and that something penetrating and elusive that is typical of the encounter with the artist.

* Pantheon Rome Store Exclusive
The fragrance, available exclusively in the Pantheon Store in via Vittoria in Rome, celebrates 2022, a special year in which two wonderful dreams take shape: the boutique in the heart of the capital - the temple of perfume and the physical home of the brand - and the birth of an heir to whom to entrust it in the future. MMXXII is an oriental vanilla made from the rarest and most precious raw materials. It opens with airy notes of orange, cherry, ginger and frangipani, which blend with great elegance with an intense heart of vanilla and cocoa. The base of amber, sandalwood and vanilla gives the composition a soft and persistent sillage. For Pythagoras the number is the origin of all things and of the equilibrium that governs the Universe: MMXXII is therefore a celebration of joy and harmony, it is to fix a date by looking for tomorrow. And in Rome a special date can only be written in Roman characters, especially if the graphic sign of the ancients takes shape in such an extraordinary and symmetrical way.

Created exclusively in 2022 for ZHOR, a high-end perfumery boutique in Via Monte Napoleone in Milan, Z is a deep, mysterious, powerful fragrance. It tells the lesser known side of Raffaello, his soul as an artist in constant turmoil, his inner conflict. The first perceived notes of cherry, myrtle and juniper blend with a heart of vanilla and rum. At the bottom, sandalwood joins a very powerful Cambodian oud, which gives the composition a unique character and remarkable persistence. A perfect blend of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors… just like the concept of the prestigious Milanese boutique.
