Megamare is an aquatic fragrance dedicated to the ocean, its depths and its secrets. Mare means 'sea' in Italian, and this is Orto Parisi's bold interpretation of the subject. Made in Italy.
Editor's Notes: Orti Parisi's Megamare is dedicated to the infinite vastness and depth of the serene sea, fractured with an unsteady turbulence: crashing waves and an uncertainty of what lies beneath. Megamare is expectedly an aquatic scent, with a power and seriousness unusual for the category. It cajoles you to smell closely, as reverberations of salty sea air and tangy salt water dry on animalic, bodily tones and a rich monolithic ambery core with woody, cedar-esque facets, giving this marine-inspired scent intensity and impact.
You can picture the scene this fragrance creates: a shoreline of shingle, of spiced brine, and seaweed tangled against old decaying wood and rocks covered in moss and algae. Against this tranquil image is the sublime terror of the murky uncertainty of the sea, mountainous crashing waves against juts of craggy rocky ridges, and an incoming sea of thick fog. When this event ends, one is left with a stillness. As it dries down, the scent turns crystalline yet present with salty amber, like a diffusive ray of light landing on the gentle ebb and flow of the ocean.
