THE ANCIENT NAME OF SARDINIA
After creating the world, God found some leftover stones in his knapsack. He threw them into the sea and pressed them into shape with his sandal. He called the new island Sandalia, meaning “sandal-shaped”. Today we call it Sardinia.
SANDALIA, THE COMPLETE RANGE
Boeli | UNISEX
A precious essence that takes us to Barbagia, where the flowing cycle of life and its bond with the earth are expressed in the Stele of Boeli in Mamoiada, an unspoilt place filled with ancient traditions.
This is one of the perfumes in our niche collection, our most precious and rare works of perfumery. The top notes are as crisp as the Supramonte air, while the enveloping base evokes distant times, ancient rituals performed around the fire where aromatic embers glow: a dance in the great circle of life.
Coriander, Green Notes,
The top notes evoke the wild environment of Supramonte: spiced with coriander and nutmeg, with green notes of herbs and nature.
Boeli's heart notes are the floral fragrances of jasmine and iris: delicate and simple, with a sweetness that smells of cool, quiet summer nights.
The conclusive notes of this fragrance are the warm and rich scents of amber, moss and sandalwood, with the delicate
sweetness of vanilla.
COROS | UNISEX
A soft fragrance, inspired by the Sardinian legend of fairies who spend their nights, among cystus and mastic bushes or sheltered by a fig tree, telling secrets and weaving fine golden threads.
Even today, the Sardinian textile art is a map from which to read past stories, capable of surprising and enthralling as they enchant. Our tale originates in the archaeological complex of Sa Figu on the Coros high plateau, where the Domus de Janas, the Houses of the Fairies, places still permeated by an enchanted atmosphere, are located.
Mandarin, Marine Notes
The fragrance of Coros opens with the fresh, citrus notes of bergamot and lemon, and the sweet tones of mandarin. Marine notes evoke Sardinia and its coastline.
Angelica, Cystus, Elemi,
Fig Leaves, Mastic
The heart of the fragrance is all Mediterranean with angelica and elemi merging with the poignant scent of cystus, mastic and fig.
Patchouli, Ambrette Seeds,
The base notes have the precious fullness of Patchouli and ambrette seeds, mingling together to envelope the sweetness of vanilla.
OTHOCA | UNISEX
Othoca is a walk among ancient ruins and aromatic bushes surrounded by the smell of salt spray. It is a tribute to Sardinia's most important element: the sea that surrounds it.
The fragrance is dedicated to Othoca, a Phoenician city now flanked by a lagoon, but which once overlooked a wide, navigable gulf. The waves depicted in the symbol represent the salvation of souls.
We find it on prehistoric vases and also on rugs that are still hand-woven today.
Bergamot, Red Thyme,
The top notes of the fragrance range from the fresh citrus of bergamot to the aromatic, Mediterranean tones of red thyme and marjoram.
The heart notes are those of the coast of Sardinia, between the sea and the sand dunes: juniper, lavender and seaweed, combined with the oriental aroma of costus.
The final notes are the oriental and precious scents of patchouli, vetiver, amber and cedarwood, which accompany the essence as it slowly mellows.
LÒ | UNISEX
LÒ is dedicated to the most authentic, deep and mysterious Sardinia, where mossy green notes revolve around another Sardinian treasure: saffron.
It is named after the nuraghe LÒ located in Sorgono, right in the middle of Sardinia. The concentric circles of its symbol lead us straight to the centre.
The symbol is inspired by the Sardinian button, a jewel but at the same time an amulet, one of the emblems of the people's identity.
Cinnamon Bark, Grapefruit, Saffron, Green Notes
The fragrance opens with the spicy notes of cinnamon and the citrus notes of grapefruit, together with the richness of saffron and the freshness of green notes.
The heart of the essence has the fruity freshness of apple, paired with the familiar, warm, floral scent of geranium.
The base notes are rare and surprising: the richness of moss and patchouli combines with the wild aroma of buckskin and laudanum.
KARALY | UNISEX
Karaly is a warm and enveloping fragrance. It exudes oriental notes reminiscent of the history of the many peoples who landed in Sardinia while sailing the Mediterranean.
It bears the ancient name of the city of Cagliari: Karalis, the city of stone. The symbol represents the sun, the brightest of all stars, like those that adorn the baskets woven painstakingly in honour of Cagliari,
the City of the Sun.
Mandarin, Violet Leaf,
The first notes of the perfume are the citrus notes of mandarin with the sweetness of violet leaf and the oriental tones of davana.
Pink ess. and abs.,
The heart of the fragrance is floral, featuring rose and geranium, like the intense scents
of a garden.
Oud Accord, Sandalwood,
The rich, full notes of sandalwood and incense complete the fragrance, accompanied by the wild notes of buckskin.
MIANA | UNISEX
Miana is a velvety yet potent fragrance, as archaic as a magic spell. The symbol, taken from the textile mills that are still Sardinia's pride and joy today, brings to mind gems and their protective virtues.
The perfume is dedicated to the Monti Miana nuraghe, which stands in the territory of the mines of Sardinia's black gold, obsidian. In prehistoric times, this volcanic stone that is transformed into razor-sharp blades was precious and in demand even in faraway lands. The precious, shiny black glass of the bottles is a tribute to this ancient treasure.
The fragrance opens with the fresh, Mediterranean citrus notes of bergamot, lemon and mandarin, which mingle with the spiciness of cinnamon.
The heart of the fragrance features the floral sweetness of the rose, together with the richer notes of its wood and precious notes of patchouli.
Vanilla, Animal Notes
The final notes of the fragrance are the rare and precious talc-like notes of opoponax, the green notes of coumarin and the sweet notes of vanilla.
NIXIAS | UNISEX
An innovative fragrance which evokes the myth of the giants, along with the courage and pride of the Sardinian people. A primordial strength, harnessed and used only to defend the good and the just.
Nixias is the perfume of the Animus. It evokes the ancestral power of our soul and expresses masculine strength through a sensual, powerful and feral composition.
IIn Sardinia, the past is part of everyday life. The whole island is rich in tales that are lost in the mists of time, stories that still retain all their allure today.
Dry Amber & Oud,
The first notes are of amber coupled with the resinous, oriental notes of oud, enhanced by cashmeran.
Luminous White Amber
The heart of the essence features the fruity, juicy aromas of raspberry, with the fragrant richness of white amber.
The base notes conclude the fragrance with the refined aromas of musk and oakmoss.
