“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).
A fragrance that represents the tranquillity of the lake. With its calm surface and soothing sounds, the lake holds a unique depth marked by kindness and peace.
“Lost in the lake’s all-embracing silence. Words are futile; nothing but background noise obscuring the immortal qualities of life. Meet me half-way, in that special spot among poets and wonderers; where words mean nothing and eyes say everything; where all life begins and ends in a single, timeless instant.”
