Bruno’s Inspiration:
"Monserrat was the second perfume I ever showed in a gallery. I wanted to revisit the fruity-floral, but in a grown-up way, without any fruit punch or candy notes. I showed it alongside paintings with soft, sun-faded colours. I was inspired by Italian fresco paintings (murals painted directly into wet, setting plaster). The fragrance is named for a paint colour with a soft apricot/orange quality. "The fragrance uses Osmanthus absolute, which has a delightful apricot note but also a very earthy/funky undertone, so it needs to be dosed carefully. That subtle earthiness grounds the fragrance and makes it feel real and human."

Made in the USA

Monserrat is olfactory fresco – indeed – there is freshness [fresco] if taken at its word, but it shares with fresco painting vibrancy and brilliance, tactility and textural depth, and harmony. Its central impression begins with apricot, thanks to a balance between the citrusy tang of grapefruit and the soft floral heart of jasmine. The note responsible for this impression is osmanthus, a complex and expensive material that rapidly moves from glistening fruitiness to the brisk tannins of tea leaves, redolent of the furry skin of apricot. This natural scene is beset with a wet plaster note, turning this vision into a depiction on Fresco, replete with its minerally aromas and grounded in white musks. This chalky nuance moves the scent into unknown territories – a fantasy of associations both familiar and strange. Monserrat clashes comforting tones of fruit and floral with impressions that previously elicited no feelings at all, becoming an imperative element towards new olfactory sensations.
