The siblings Tiziana and Paolo Terenzi come from a traditional Italian family that has lived at the foot of Gradara Castle for over 700 years. A close relationship with history, mysticism, legends, and nature, therefore, shaped them. Their homeland is filled with passion, love, sin, virtues, vice, and adventure. And it is precisely from these qualities that the Terenzis wanted to recreate the most enchanting love story ever written through precious and evocative fragrances.
Driven by the lush inspirational sources surrounding the medieval castle, Tiziana and Paolo Terenzi founded their label V Canto and launched their first artistic creation, "Mastin," in 2015. Above all, the "Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri acted as a kind of "godfather" in the founding. Ten other unisex fragrances followed in the same year immediately after the appearance of "Mastin", including "Magnificat," "Mirabile" and "Mea Culpa".
Paolo Terenzi also acts as a perfumer for V Canto, preferring high-quality raw materials and fruits such as plum, orange, pineapple, raspberry, and coconut in his search for fragrances in the form of medieval poetry. Then, bergamot, sandalwood, or musk are used when refining the base. The aromas are therefore fresh-spicy, floral-sweet, or even spicy-woody.
V Canto's elegant and sophisticated bottle design makes them sought-after collectibles with a poetic-historical claim. These creations can be bought via beauty portals, upscale retail stores, large department stores, and the brand's website.
