Chimaera Extrait de Parfum Anniversary Collection
This unforgettable journey starts in a sail boat in the Gulf of Fethiye, known in history as the "land of light and fire", stopping at the amazing and surreal Olympus, where, from the heart of the mountain, huge tongues of fire are released and are visible even from the sea in the warm summer nights.
Like Phoenician sailors, transported from Maltemi, we headed on toward the ruins of the Lycian civilization, between untouched coves and pine-covered hills reach down to the sea, surrounded by slopes covered in thyme, sage, bay trees and rare, almost extinct, Günlük, "Incense trees" that perfume the air in a breathtaking explosion of colours and essences. A scent of wild and lush nature, both sweet and warm at the same time, emphasised by the intense smell of melted caramel that comes from small
camps at the foot of the mountain, where we rest before the climb. This fragrance reverberates in the air and is reflected in the blue of the sea, passing by the ruins of the ancient city to reach the lighthouse at Cape Gelidonya, which stands alone in a place full of history and legends. The tensions and attractions of this combination of elements, fire and water, have been captured and enclosed in a perfume extract made from rare and precious natural raw materials.
This untouched territory, rugged and wild, gathers within itself all the splendour and strength of the Mediterranean that from its belly, like an ancient Greek deity, breathes supernatural and magical fire giving rise to Chimera.
Tiziana Terenzi's Anniversary Collection stems from the oldest perfume tradition. Each year, there will be a limited new crop of carefully selected rare, raw materials, cultivated with care and love by expert hands. The fragrance recipe remains the same, though each year the sun, wind, rain and snow will, in fact, have left their indelible and unforgettable mark on these ingredients, giving the molecules a unique character and the fragrance its own soul.
Each precious bottle is catalogued with the year of production, making it a unique and collectible piece.
