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.
At its core, Sorcinelli’s portfolio is a journey through spirituality and harmony, in the constant (and often audacious) search for beauty. In Sorcinelli’s imagination, the beautiful is magmatic and of indeterminate form, an impassioned eruption of creativity that manifests in unusual materials both aromatic and aesthetic - where real matter takes the place of illusions. Process is as important as product, as the spirit of the artistic pervades from inception to execution.
