Esxence 2016: Scent Diary #1

The latest addition to Gabriella Chieffo's line Maisìa is inspired by the story of a beautiful woman condemned as a witch for her free spirit. Mai sìa (meaning never let it be) is what people said while the woman was sent to the stake and is an hymn to strong femininity. Also the eau de parfum created by Luca Maffei shows this duality in the fig theme mixing the sweet feminine side of the fruit of wisdom with mediterranean wild broom, symbol of pride. Smoke and ashes hints complete the basenotes for a special sillage.
