The family brand Tiziana Terenzi has a special history, full of memories, which began in 1968, and maybe even earlier…
Tiziana Terenzi scented candles and brand history
In 1968, Guglielmo Terenzi opened a small workshop for the production of scented candles. It was then that he decided to devote himself to his beloved work, spending all his free time in his tiny laboratory, mixing herbal extracts and finding pleasure in it. Paolo often ran to his grandfather and liked to watch him work. Together they walked for a long time in the garden near the house, studying and collecting flowers and plants.
As a very young boy, Paolo learned to distinguish the smells of plants. Grandfather and grandson had such a game - Guglielmo blindfolded Paolo and brought different plants to his nose, and he had to guess what was in front of him this time.
Many years have passed since then. Youth wants to do everything. Paolo followed in his grandfather's footsteps, but first he became a musician and a student of the philosophy of law.
Over time, the small laboratory of Guglielmo Terenzi turned into a large perfume house Tiziana Terenzi, which today is owned by his grandchildren - Paolo and Tiziana Terenzi. Paolo has become the "nose" of the brand, while his sister is responsible for the design and promotion of the brand.
They are convinced that wisdom is needed in creating a fragrance. Therefore, their candles have a complex olfactory pyramid, that is, top, heart and trail notes, and besides this, the candles have a unique wick, consisting of two types of wood, and each has a special function. One is responsible for a beautiful flame, the other creates crackling.
And besides scented candles, the family brand also creates perfumes. At the heart of the fragrances, brother and sister use only natural plant extracts, so Tiziana Terenzi perfumes are known throughout the world for their quality and durability. All fragrances by Paolo Terenzi are passionate and poetic, just like the main nose of the brand, Paolo. “... My works are characterized as complex”, and this is not surprising, because the perfumer approaches the creation of each of them as a work of art.
Perfume Tiziana Terenzi
Debut fragrances under the family brand appeared in 2012-2013, before that time Paolo worked on perfume compositions of other popular brands - for Dior, Versace, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Brioni and many others.
In the perfumes created by Paolo Terenzi, woody notes almost always sound, especially sandalwood, fir, pine and cedar, probably because they reflect the concept of the brand, because the whole history of the perfume house is built around burning (it all started with scented candles).
Fragrances such as XIX March, White Fire, Ecstasy, Gold Rose Oudh, as well as Lillipur and Maremma are associated with fire. Fire is not only a burning process that warms, it is the fire of the soul, and the fire of love, the fire and light of a distant star ...
Paolo Terenzi's travels also serve as a source of inspiration for creating fragrances. For example, Lillipur is inspired by a trip to Nepal, where history, civilization and spirituality intertwine. Lillipur is a cluster of temples, and among them the incredible beauty of the Golden Temple stands out. This perfume personifies the mystical fire of the soul, the burning hearts of believers.
The XIX March fragrance, which is more carefree and even cheerful, is dedicated to the Italian holiday La Focarina di S. Giuseppe, which takes place exactly on March 19, when they say goodbye to winter and kindle a fire.
The Maremma composition also occupies an important place - a complex fragrance filled with fruity and floral notes, with strong leathery and woody tones. This perfume well reflects the charm of the wild beauty of the land - one of the corners of sunny Italy. Today, Paolo Terenzi dedicates his knowledge and skill to the niche perfumery of his brand.
His perfume is original in sound, and behind each fragrance there is a story - memories of travels. But there are fragrances inspired by the stars in the night sky. So there were collections dedicated to heavenly bodies. Paolo Terenzi is a philosopher, and therefore it is natural for him to turn his gaze to the sky, which stores secrets, where each star lives in its place and participates in the life of the Universe.
We are trying to unravel the book of Nature, to penetrate this mystery, and even compose our own stories. But what if these stories are told in the language of fragrances? It was these stories that became the life work of the talented master Paolo Terenzi.
And here are some of them...
