Between the snapshot of the past and the hopes of the future, there’s the excitement of the present.
Trying to take a photo of the future and tarnishing the slides of yesterday. there is no way to hide the past, which flaunts itself in the face, in the eyes, in the actions and in the steps; There is no way to mark the future trying to make it like we want; but there is a way, indeed, to deceive time. It’s living the present. Meraviglioso Istante is a particularly Parfum, it is made of contrasts and balances; between the nostalgic notes of memories and the heady spices of the future’s hopes, there’s the awareness of today.
In this sense, from calm and quiet notes of Rose, Jasmine, Gardenia and Lilac the Parfum moves to energetic and arabic flavor of saffron, pink pepper, cardamom and cinnamon, and then gives way to a noble and balsamic Oud. The philosophy of the Parfum embodies its smelling: “Il passato ed il futuro non sono realtà ma solo effimere illusioni, devo liberarmi del tempo e vivere il presente, giacché non esiste altro tempo che questo Meraviglioso Istante” (Alda Merini)
