The Mer­chant of Venice pays trib­ute to a so­phis­ti­cated, mys­te­ri­ous flower known as the Moceniga Rose

In­spired by the tra­di­tion of the Repub­lic of Venice, its su­pe­rior crafts­man­ship and its age-old trade with the Far East, the an­cient ori­gins of the ‘Rosa Moceniga' fra­grance by The Mer­chant of Venice are as­so­ci­ated with the Vene­tian art of per­fume mak­ing. This ex­quis­ite, rare flower, that orig­i­nated in China, was im­ported from France by Lu­cia Mocenigo, a close friend of Josephine Bon­a­parte, who was pas­sion­ate about these flow­ers. The name ‘Moceniga' de­rives from the an­cient Vene­tian Mocenigo fam­ily whose his­toric res­i­dence in Alvi­sopoli has main­tained a gar­den de­voted to the cul­ti­va­tion of this rose for the past two hun­dred years. The essence cre­ated by The Mer­chant of Venice draws in­spi­ra­tion from this mys­te­ri­ous rose, dis­tin­guished by its sil­very pink petals and light vein­ing. Its strong, fruity fra­grance gives birth to a woman's per­fume, and boasts an orig­i­nal ol­fac­tory com­po­si­tion. The head notes se­duce with fresh notes of Si­cil­ian berg­amot and the sweet­ness of rose essence, del­i­cately en­hanced by black cur­rant leaves. At its heart, this floral bou­quet dom­i­nated by rose ab­so­lute is ex­alted by hints of mag­no­lia and lo­tus flow­ers, while a mix­ture of musk, white cedar wood and vanilla rounds out the scent for a deep cap­ti­vat­ing fin­ish. Like all the women's fra­grances of the ‘Mu­rano Col­lec­tion', ‘Rosa Moceniga' is con­tained in an el­e­gant bot­tle in­spired by ex­quis­ite hand­crafted glass.
