COMPANY ARTISTIC PERFUMERY

AGATHO culture, experience and passion The exquisite porcelain of Capodimonte and the buried city of Pompeii have inspired the fragrances of this young brand

Agatho was the name of one of the most famous fragrance makers in ancient Pompeii, the city buried when Mount Vesuvius, overlooking Naples, erupted in Roman times, rediscovered after the excavations initiated by Charles III of Bourbon in the 18th century. This enlightened ruler was also the founder, together

86

with his wife Amalia of Saxon, of the Real Fabbrica of Capodimonte, a centre for the production of fine porcelain, esteemed by collectors and connoisseurs all over the world. These elements come together in the brand of fragrance Agatho, with fragrances contained in packaging inspired by the decorations of the tablinum, or reception room, of the Villa dei Misteri, a Pompeii home famous for its frescoes of the myth of Dionysus, sealing the mystique and ancestral sensory nature of the fragrances. Rossopompeiano captures all the freshness of the Mediterranean, with citrus notes accompanying the sensuality of the Damascus rose, sublimated in sinuous oriental echoes, and is inspired by the colour which made so famous and unmistakable in the world the walls of the Pompeii villas. The pigment, obtained from the mineral cinnabar, is the emblem of a piece of history and of the city of the perfumer Agatho. The bottle, simple in its elegance, is crowned by a cap f fine porcelain which reveals the preciousness of gold and silver, taking

on the gleam and refinement of pearl, with which it blossoms a new and the story of this city of eternal beauty is given new life. It is the power of the myth and the elegance of the garden that inspires GiardinodiErcole, a refined and vigorous essence. Bergamot and Juniper berries

take shape on a carpet of incense, fading out in the persistent suggestion of oriental woods. The presence of marble Hercules in the garden of the perfumer’s house, a triumph of courage and immortality, raises to the level of myth the creations by Agatho and GiardinodiErcole becomes a fragrance.
