I changed my life to create Mendittorosa Odori d’Anima.
Mendittorosa Odori d’Anima is my journey,
my life: a reflection of my true soul.
I was somewhere important to me when I decided to write
this magical chapter of my life,
that place was Stromboli, a living, breathing volcano.
A black lava mountain 1000 metres above
and 2000 meters below the sea.
Stromboli or Iddu in the local dialect is
my symbol, my muse, my protection…
A baptism of pure energy
that I hope will now reach you.

My perfumes exist to bring this energy
and much more to you; as important tools and keys
placed in your hands
and on your skin in your search in life.
Mendittorosa Odori d’Anima is a journey of resurrection
in scented experiences.
Experiences that reconnect. Wounds that heal.
When the beginning meets the end,
it brings peace and poetry.
Perfumed mirrors of the soul.
These are now yours.

Love,
Stefania.

Divine is the word i would use to describe this #perfume in one word. A plethora of notes taking turns to dance & showcase their beauty without stepping on each other’s toes. This is such a well blended perfume with just the right amount of floral, woody, fruity & bitter notes. A perfectly structured well balanced perfume! Bravo

Order Rituale directly from Mendittorosa’s website, the owner, brand muse, and all-around amazing Soul-Buddy Stefania Squeglia will likely personally respond; she, her visions, her incredible creations that’s she’s 100% involved in, from every drop of fragrance to every mm of the gorgeous artisan bottles, packaging, branding. Mendittorosa Odori d’Anima (“scents of the soul”) and sister company Talismans Collezion Preziosa are rare brands into which the owner has put her heart and soul—and anyone fortunate to experience her and her creations, comes away feeling a better person. All of Stefania’s creations are “extrait” concentrates decanted into 100ml, totally original, works of art—literally. Several artists, poets, top perfumers, craftsmen and even dancers work behind the lines to keep every piece original, and you can really feel it. Rituale is truly gorgeous and unique—very golden in nature. Although there are mostly sweet, sanguine–red forest fruits in the opening accords, it isn’t syrupy sweet. I immediately assumed this was a honey scent through and through, but there are white florals, warm, animalics like beeswax and “Golden Stone”, amber, woods. You won’t know what you’re missing until you try it, and I heartily suggest you do, if you’re a true fragrance lover...especially “niche”, I guarantee there’s more here to love than meets the eye!

Often we use metaphors from the world around us to describe perfumes for the lack of the scent specific vocabulary. However, Mendittorosa create perfume metaphors of the world. It’s the other way around - they try to represent notions such as time, destiny, luck, fate, etc. with the rhythms and the choice of materials in their cosmic otherwordly formulas and this is why we love them.

Wow! This is an ethereal majestic beauty which defines the words 'liquid poetry'. How something so still, cool and serene can evoke so much emotion, time and space from just a few drops in a vial.To me this is incense and ozone, earth and sky, an ode to freedom and solitude. It has Cedarwood Virginia, Vetiver, Aldehydes and Ozone amongst its ingredients.

This is one of the more creative fragrances in my collection and it’s quite hard to describe. It’s got a honey type sweet accord accompanied by some dry fruity notes and some florals. I also get a little incense in here even though it’s a note that’s not listed. It’s blended with some other notes to create something that’s nice and warming but above all, mysterious. This one really captures my imagination.

“Archetipo wowed me from the very first time I tried it, it is a gigantic perfume , an olfactive experience unlike any other. It is such an unusual blend, I pick up on freshness...almost sea like, the composition has a cooling green like effect meets salty oceanic ambergris . It's almost transparent to a certain point, but very dark at the same time. I also picked up on a weird but fascinating metallic woody smoky accord, yes very smoky indeed, and mineral like simultaneously. The impression is of smoke meeting water. Looking at the dark metal cap is a good way of painting a picture of the olfactive show I find in Archetipo. It is like witnessing a volcano set on fire, submerging in the darkest waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Like flames floating on the sea. I've never experienced anything quite like this in my seven years of fragrance collecting. Stunning, rare, mesmerizing, and even though I could care less than -0 about compliments, I think it is worth mentioning that I literally just got bombarded with 5 unsolicited compliments about my fragrance choice of the day within the first fifteen minutes since I arrived at work...which I was not expecting at all due to the rareness of this olfactive jewel.”

“I love Id. It is, among all your works that I have had the opportunity to try, the darkest. But is isn't so extremely dark. If the complexity of your works can be reduced to colors, they won't be super bright colors or super dark colors--nothing too extreme, which I think is what makes them all so unique and separates them from the mainstream ideas of perfume. Id is very sensual. It captures the depth of love found in suffocatingly minimalist films. Id is instantly lovely and likable and to me it's just like this Shimamoto Shozo's 1957 painting I saw in the Art Institute of Chicago. At last, I want to thank you for your amazing works. It is an honor to be able to enjoy them and to be able remember the past and dream of the future along with them.”

Scent of the day is Rituale composed by Mendittorosa of 🇮🇹. Alluring and animalistic it conjures the since of romance, traveling to the coast and experiencing the perfect Mead wine with ripened fruits. Very vividly the notes captured the essence so well. The nose behind this fragrance is Amelie Bourgeois. Top notes are bergamot, mandarin orange and lavender; middle notes are jasmine, narcissus, rose, black currant, raspberry and pomegranate; base notes are patchouli, sandalwood, beeswax, amberwood, white musk and hyrax.
