As a perfumer, FILIPPO SORCINELLI embodies a philosophy where life becomes art and art becomes life. Brand and perfumer are indistinguishable from one another: a crisscrossing that renders experiences and ideas into smell, drawing inspiration from architecture, film, poetry, music, spirituality, and real world events, the list goes on - the possible sources of inspiration for Sorcinelli are boundless.
A professionally trained organist, and tailor to two Catholic popes, with an inclination for the metaphysical, perfumery becomes an olfactory tailoring dedicated to the passions, a poetry of the most sincere expression, without artifice.
Filippo Sorcinelli created the Extrait de Musique brand in 2016 to represent the tones of the Great Organ of the Notre Dame Cathedral.
In a tribute to the Organ, each bottle is capped with a reed stop that reflects the inspiration behind that scent.
