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.
