SANDALIA 

LUXURY COLLECTION 

SARDINIA’S HISTORICAL NAME

The history of Sardinia is rich in legends that have become lost in the mists of time; these have been passed down from era to era and still today retain their fascination when they are told.
There are stories concerning Sardinia’s actual formation and the people who lived there, on ridges, hills and valleys. In Sardinia everything is associated with folktales, which serve to project an air of mystery around this land and its inhabitants. The story goes that God, after creating the world and having some rocks and a little clay left over in his sack, threw everything into the sea and trampled it with his foot, causing the land to take on a resemblance to his shoe. This legend gave rise to the name “Sandalia” (from the Latin Sandaliotis, meaning sandal-shaped), one of the ancient names used to indicate Sardinia.

BOELI

A precious essence that transports us to Babagia, where the passage of the eternal life cycle, together with its intense bond with the land, is reflected in the Stele di BOELI, at Mamoiada, a place unscathed and with ancient traditions. The top notes are bracing like the air of the Supramonte, whereas the fascinating base notes call to mind ancient rites performed round aromatic braziers; a dance within the great circle of life.

COROS

COROS is a soft fragrance that tells the story of countless small fairies who during the night, among cistus and mastic shrubs, or
in the shelter of a fig tree, divulge secrets and weave fine gold threads. Even today Sardinian textile art uncovers a map of past, yet still present stories, capable of arousing wonder and enthusiasm through their charm.
Our tale draws its origins from the Sa Figu archaeological site on the plateau of Coros, location of the Domus de Janas (House of the Fairies), places which still today are pervaded by an atmosphere of enchantment.

KARALI

KARALY is a warm and captivating fragrance. It contains oriental notes that reflect the story of the numerous peoples who arrived in Sardinia by way of the Mediterranean, a sea whose depths carry a wealth of mystery, being strewn with ships that have sunk accompanied by their precious cargos of amphorae and
treasures. Its symbol represents the sun, the brightest of the stars, such as those adorning the baskets painstakingly crafted using
wickerwork, precisely in honour of the City of the Sun, Cagliari.

LO

The perfume LÒ is dedicated to the more authentic, intense and mysterious Sardinia where green and musky notes revolve around another Sardinian treasure: saffron.
It is portrayed by a symbol derived from the Sardinian button, at once both a jewel and an amulet, one of the emblems of the Sardinian people that describes how it deals with the universal struggle between good and evil.
Its name stems from the LÒ nuraghe in the town of Sorgono, located right in the central part of Sardinia: the concentric circles of its symbol lead us precisely towards the centre, towards the gem.

MIANA

MIANA is a velvety yet powerful fragrance, as archaic as a magical formula. The symbol, taken from the production of textiles which still today continues to be Sardinia’s feather in its cap, is reminiscent of the gemstones and their protective virtues. The perfume is dedicated to the Monti Miana nuraghe, located in the mining territory of Sardinia’s ‘black gold’, Obsidian, a stone reflected in the exquisite glass of the little bottles.

OTHACA

OTHOCA is a ramble through ancient ruins surrounded by aromatic shrubs infused with saltiness. It pays homage to the most important aspect of Sardinia: the sea water that encircles it. The portrayal of the waves appearing on the symbol, as can be seen on prehistoric vases and on the carpets which still today continue to be handwoven, represent the salvation of souls.
The fragrance is dedicated to Othoca, a Phoenician town now flanked by a lagoon, but which once upon a time overlooked a large navigable gulf.
