NOTES Pink Pepper, Sage Cedarwood, Vegetal Amber and Benzoin
The Ombú is a majestic plant native to the Pampa and is an essential part of Argentinian landscape and tradition. It usually grows alone and because of its monumental size it oﬀers shelter from the elements to passing horsemen.
ALTAIA is the acronym for "A Long Time Ago In Argentina". It is a celebration of two individual's love for the art of perfumery and the power of storytelling through scent, as well as the extraordinary circumstances of their shared past. Each Eau de Parfum contains olfactory elements evocatively associated with a strand of their interlaced past and present, lovingly crafted to produce fragrances that are both timeless and contemporary.
The story - In the wild lands of mid-19th century South America, two very different families crossed paths - an encounter that shaped the future of modern-day Argentina. General Bartoloma Mitre, a statesman and man of letters, became unified Argentina's first President in 1862. One of his first presidential decrees was to open the country to foreign investment, with the ultimate goal of building a railway system to connect the interior with the capital and further unify the country. Enter Charles and Walter Morrison. Their father, James Morrison, had risen from humble origins to become Victorian England's most notable entrepreneur. The brothers saw great opportunity in Argentina and invested a portion of their father's fortune in the railway system as well as in utilities, banking and land deals that fuelled the development of the young country during the industrial age.
140 years later the direct descendants of Mitre and Morrison met in Italy and fell in love.
Marina Sersale is the great-great-granddaughter of James Morrison. She grew up in Italy and England. Sebastian Alvarez Murena is the great-great-grandson of Bartoloma Mitre, after living in Argentina, Spain and Switzerland, he finally settled in Italy where in 2001 he met Marina. The two fell in love and got married. In 2004 they joined forces to create Eau d'Italie, an exclusive line of fragrances inspired by Positano and their favourite places throughout Italy.
In 2012 the chance discovery of the extraordinary events that centuries ago linked their families inspired them to create a new perfume collection, which they called ALTAIA.
