Portofino Caligo, a Dream Local

Portofino Caligo is a fragrance we worked on, long and hard.  We researched all the little the nuances of the quaint Italian city and found an absolutely dreamy combination of things that make Portofino... well, Portofino. The fragrance features breathtaking notes of spreading wild vines, wet stone, herbs and rare flowers with a fresh harbor mist overtone.  The naturals of the coast are captured to detect slight notes of beach wood, oakmoss and wild patchouli.


A Fortress of Nature & Ancient Roman Ruins

Portofino (Italian Riviera) is a city but why do you suppose so many people flock there yearly? Because it's quite a site to behold and hard to forget with those who've had the pleasure of the experience, returning time and time again.  

The quaint fishing village is a fortress of nature and history with ancient Roman ruins battered by thousands of years of sea air but so perfect for the romantic landscape.  Exotic flavors, indigenous plants and lush foliage give the landscape a specific fragrance.  The blue lagoon-like waters brush against the city architecture that seems to naturally stem straight from the waters beneath.  

A Landscape Like No Other

The pastel buildings seem just as much a part of the surrounding, lush, mountainous hills as the stone and the trees that create the natural surroundings.  The harbor is sprinkled with friendly, colorful boats, living seemingly forever, in this peaceful edge of the Ligurian Sea. The cobblestone walkways provide a hike to remember but losing oneself in hidden parts of the outdoor architecture, is an experience all in its own.  

Even Rainy Days are Amazing!
