Filippo Sorcinelli


$25.00 USD

(2ml Extrait De Parfum) 


It seems to have marked the end. Everything seemed to have happened quickly. We beat our chests, everyone condemned, a chapter quickly closed, because Saturday was coming. Yet fear and amazement are describing the unexpected, a precious bottle falls into a thousand pieces, releases its aroma and speaks in silence. Yet we knew it. Death is not the last word. The stone rolled away, and with it turns my life upside down every day, it greases my skin now with sand so that I can dirty that linen with my inaccuracies.
The now useless ointment frames an empty place. Rich. This is the wonder, this is the day.

The HÆC DIES fragrance from Filippo Sorcinelli's delire de voyage collection was presented close to the Easter events. Philip emphasizes these moments by interpreting by smell some passages from the Gospel of Mark, and in particular the moment of amazement and fear of the women when they realize that the stone of the Sepulcher has rolled away. In an ideal image to describe this moment, the bottle of very expensive aromatic oils based on aloe and myrrh, which they had prepared to anoint the body of Jesus, is dropped to the ground when they saw not only the rolled stone away, but all the white linen sheets that wrapped the body. Hence the announcement of a young man dressed in dazzling white... The bottle together with the four "wings" that open as a "ritual" are covered in sand, dust, precisely to remember the steps, the road and the place. But the element that blocks attention is the cap which reproduces the stylistic features of the tomb stone that has rolled away, just as they were once built. The work of art is covered in its entirety by a veil of white linen, on which the name of the fragrance is reproduced: HÆEC DIES. The outside of the packaging is also covered with the same linen.
