Summer is officially gone…and soon, what’s left inside this bottle as well…we are talking about 5ml left of juice…what a pity.
So, a couple of years back, when finding niche fragraces in Slovenia was like trying to find bigfoot…we were going around different european countries on a quest to learn and collect tasty liquids. So we landed in Zagreb, to be precise, at Perfumerie Lana…which by the way is a phenomenal place.
The beauty behind orion is just flawless. Sweet, smoky, playful yet serious…a one of a kind blend.-D&M-
There, the owner herself Lana, (yes, she runs her own spectacle) guided and shown to us a wide range of fragrances… so we ended up acquiring few great ones. But one day among those many visits, she offered to Le wife to take a whiff of Orion by the house of Tiziana Terenzi and i remember seeing her face goes like ” what in the world”….probably the excitement was bigger than when i proposed her in Piazza San Marco in Venice, or maybe a lil less but trust me, it was huge.
So she just grabbed the thing and few years later, here we are, looking back to so many memories linked to this perfume, travels, dinners, jobs, projects, arguments, love, differences, agreements…laughter and some tears too and one thing i can tell you, from all the fragrances we have/had…this is the most memorable one of hers or at least the one that witnessed the most relevant episodes of our lives together i must say. On a side note, i never wanted to wear it myself tho, you know why? Cuz after you see that reaction on someone you love, like my wife after smelling Orion, you should just leave it there for her/his exclusive joy, even if you love the smell too.
Till now, still dont know what it was, the pineapple, the cedar or maybe the smoke that surrounds that apple accord, the musk, god knows what made the trick…but it doesn’t matter, there are about 5ml left and endless moments to remember linked to each and every spray applied
