CORTESE VENEZIA

THE ORIGINAL PERFUMES OF VENICE

From Cortese Venezia, the most wonderful collection of perfumes developed from the original secret recipes and formulas of Venice, lost for hundreds of years and now rediscovered.

Aromatic oils, essences and natural extracts are blended together to reproduce the divine qualities of the perfumes of the period, when Venice was at the top of the perfume industry, the meeting point between east and west…and where women (and men) dressed in the finest silks and jewellery, sported the most extravagant coiffures, filled their palaces with paintings, frescoes and chandeliers, drank from Murano glasses and carried secret phials of perfume hidden deep in velvet pockets and brocade pouches…

These unique and private perfumes are now accessible and relevant to our life today………
