My inspiration for Mediterra will be obvious to anyone who has visited the Almafi Coast in Italy. It has been ten years since I last visited there, but over that two-week period I developed an inspiration for a fragrance that defined the region, and it remained in my olfactory memory until I had the opportunity to create it. Now you have the opportunity to experience those same olfactory sensations.
In this fragrance you will find the Mediterranean Ocean, fresh salty air, lush citrus groves and other indigenous vegetation and forestry found in the region. As in all my fragrances, Mediterra hinges on the interplay of natural ingredients, but here I included a small dash of seaweed because it adds to the authenticity of the oceanic theme.
Mediterra is the brightest and most summery fragrance of my first five releases in the Reconnaissance Collection, but it is one of my favorites because it evokes fond memories of a happy and careless time and a renewed love for my wife. I can only hope that Mediterra has the same open air, blissful and loving feeling for you that I experienced, as I created this fragrance specifically for that reason.
