“In the human soul the lake symbolises two opposites: depth and surface, unconscious and rational, sorrow and joy. A water mirror that reflects all that is around us, inviting humans to look deep inside themselves.
Silent and reassuring, sad and fascinating, but also romantic and disruptive. Resembling a secret journey accompanied by musical compositions, every COMO LAKE fragrance proposes an olfactory chord that reflects the lake’s countless shades as they merge with profound melodies. Just like the lake inside of us.”
COMO LAKE is a fragrance collection inspired by the countless meaningful facets of the Italian lake.
With its characteristic reverse Y-shape, its beautiful and timeless landscape has inspired poets and musicians throughout history, including Alessandro Manzoni, Stendhal, George Gordon Byron, and Franz Liszt.
Each COMO LAKE fragrance is created with a story behind it, conveying profound meanings. One could say that the notes of any given fragrance compose an olfactory harmony, just like notes on a music sheet create a melodic masterpiece. Like an oneiric journey accompanied by melodious notes on a piano, therefore, every COMO LAKE fragrance presents an olfactory chord that reflects the lake’s countless mesmerising aspects. Aligned with this inspiration, the name of each fragrance is a subtle reference to renowned musical melodies: Notturno (Nocturne), Silenzio (Silence), Un’Altra Estate (Rhythm of Another Summer), Note d’Amore (Love Theme), Bacio nella Pioggia (Melody of Tears).
Notturno reflects the contrast between the unconscious and the rational, restlessness and peace. It evokes the desire to dive deep below the surface, penetrating into the darkness of the night.
“Sitting in solitude, contemplating the depths and mysteries of human existence. The lake’s surface reflects our demons and complex meanings beyond our understanding. Yet at its depth lays an unshakable peace; the immutable essence of life.”
