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's story begins with LAVS (Laboratorio Atelier Vesti Sacre) where his work with sacred vestments led to the creation of a fragrance for the Vatican’s robes. This led to the birth of UNUM, Filippo’s first brand, which debuted with this scent, simply titled LAVS.
UNUM, meaning ‘one’, are fragrances of art and impulse, that very impulse that becomes oxygen to fuel the creative flame for every discipline Sorcinelli tries. He wishes to describe the uniqueness of his journey, suffered and intense, true and spiritual, shared with honest truth.
