La Compagnia Di Caterina the Ginori 1735 home fragrance collection designed by Luca Nichetto announces two new fragrances
LCDC, La Compagnia Di Caterina, the Ginori 1735 home fragrance collection designed by Luca Nichetto, now has two new fragrances: Amber Lagoon and Musk Road.
A collection synthesizing the figurative tradition of the Manifattura and the contemporary vision interpreted by Luca Nichetto, composed of candles in various sizes and colours, incense holder and fragrance diffusers.
L’Amazzone (The Amazon), L’Amante (The Lover), Il Letterato (The Scholar), Il Seguace (The Companion), Il Favorito (The Favourite), Il Frate (The Friar), La Dama (The Lady), L’Addetto al Fuoco (The Fire-Master) are characters in the court of Catherine de’ Medici, travelling with the Queen of Florence to Paris, who breathe life into the Ginori 1735 home fragrance collection LCDC, La Compagnia Di Caterina.
For LCDC, Luca Nichetto was inspired by lucha libre masks, the illustrations of Jean-Paul Goude and graffiti art. In the designer’s creative vision, the statuesque faces of the characters become the archetypal protagonists of the collection. With a design that mixes the classicism of ancestral statues with rigorous lines, the faces and sculptures take on an iconic and mysterious dimension. A fusion of graphic symbols with an alchemical flavour and colours that recall the ingredients used to create the fragrances.
Developed by Jean Niel, the oldest French perfume company, founded in 1779, the LCDC fragrances are designed to be unique and timeless, evoking stories, restoring sensations and diffusing naturally and permanently.
In keeping with creativity and art, Ginori 1735 also awakens the afterlife of LCDC. Individual pieces come with refills that can be replaced when the fragrance runs out. Thus, the LCDC characters are mixed with the different fragrances, starting a new life cycle.
Each character has a meaning, as does the packaging which reveals the Medici symbol, reimagined with a flame at the centre.
