The Merchant of Venice is a brand closely related to Venice and its history, and narrates the role of city as the progenitor of the world perfumery tradition. Created in 2013, the brand offers different product lines inspired by the tradition of the Venetian Republic, its fine craftsmanship, and its centuries-old trade with the Orient.
The Merchant of Venice presents two new fragrances able to embody the essence, uniqueness and beauty of the City. Venezia Essenza, a new project that pays tribute to the city of Venice, the cultural foundation and source of constant inspiration for The Merchant of Venice.
These masterpieces reinterpret the classic shapes of The Merchant of Venice bottles decorated with elements and colours designed to evoke the soul of a rich, majestic and cosmopolitan city as it was Venice at the time of the Serenissima.
For this prestigious project, The Merchant of Venice has decided to highlight the tradition of Venetian mosaics by inserting golden tessera into a glossy black background creating a perfect union between mystery and opulence.
The hot-stamped Venezia Essenza logo on the front donates a bright and shiny touch to the whole composition. The boxes recall the colours and the graphics of the bottles creating a perfect link between every component of the packaging. Two sophisticated Eau de Parfum Concentrée, each with its own olfactory signature expertly crafted: the oriental heart notes confer a unique, refined, and definite character to each creation.
A unique signature, a magnificent floral bouquet contrasted by delicate fruity hints opens on a sensual dry down, where precious woods combine with the tantalizing addiction of amber & vanilla. A rich and warm fragrance, ultimate expression of the gorgeous beauty of Venice.
Woody, Ambery, Spicy, Olibanum
This fragrance is inspired by the opulence of Venice and precious spices. The scent first introduces sparkling bergamot with vibrant petit grain and warm nutmeg. The heart note unites a woody accord of rooty vetiver and diffusive palo santo with resinous facets of powerful labdanum. The base is luxurious and sophisticated, composed of dark leather, roasted coffee and soft musks to deliver long-lasting power, strength and elegant depth.
