All the soaring’s of my mind begin in my blood”
Rainer Maria Rilke
Naples is urs sanguinium, City of Blood, protected by patron saint San Gennaro. Three times a year his dried blood is presented to the people, hungry for love and miracles. If this holy treasure liquefies all will be well with Naples. If not, the earth will shake, skies blacken…misfortune might descend.
This supernatural and holy liquefaction is a talisman of metamorphosis and protection. OSANG is inspired by this extraordinary annual ritual. A scent of viscous beauty, Osang triggers our pulses, and shifts us from inertia to bubbling resurrection. A miracle of love. A perfume of darkness that slowly explodes into delirious, mysterious light, a Talisman of blood, seething with shadows and burning magic. A miracle of scented love. An indelible prayer for skin. Osang seethes with shadows and burning magic.
A perfumed celebration of saints and superstitions, centred around a ravenous fenugreek absolute note lavished with singed pyrazines, sacrificial myrrh and mournful molten honey poured over everything like amber rain. Meadow blooms, sticky dark resins, pungent balms and ashen clouds of iris swirl like dramatic weather.
Heliotrope, honey, meadow flowers, & fenugreek absolute
Sichuan pepper, nutmeg labdanum, iris, myrrh, benzoin & styrax
Sandalwood, amber, oud, incense, Peru balsam, animalic musks
OSANG Extrait de Parfum is presented in luxurious hand-made Talismans case. Its cap is the hat of the Saint in the interpretation of our sculptor, Alessandro Reggioli while bottle is adorned with a real sacred pending ornament piece.The Italian Coral Horn together with Sangennaro has always been the Neapolitan way to ward off Evil. Inside Osang, you will find a little Horn (Corno as we say in Italian). Our protective horn has been handmade of real red coral, the red gold of Naples Bay.
