Antonio Visconti

The History
In 1857 Averardo Visconti, a Florentine master glove maker opened his first shop in Paris in Fauburg Saint-Honore, where he 
worked with leathers of the highest quality tanned using the traditional methods of the great master glove maker of the Florence of the Medici. The shop in Fauburg Saint-Honore produced the best leather goods of Second Empire Paris; saddlecloths, perfumed gloves, writing- desks, travel bags and carriage seats

The Maison Visconti line soon became the most desirable and sought after brand by the nobility and clergy of their me.
However, it was not until the beginning of the 20th century that the family, having moved to Grasse, began to venture in to
perfume.
Here, in the perfume capital of the world, Antonio Visconti learnt the art and the secrets of maceration and enfleurage, techniques
still used today to extract the fragrant oils from the delicate blossoms of Jasmine, Rose, Tuberose or Narcissus, used to create the sublime symphonies of Rose Sauvage and Rose Supreme. Feuille et Fleur de Jasmin, Fleur de Lys and Fleur de Nuit.

The unique nature of these compositions arises from the precious rare perfume oils used in their formulae, obtained by distilling flowers, seeds, spices, fruits, balsams, wood and animal infusions such as the precious and now almost unobtainable Ambergris. Each Visconti perfume has an unmistakable, specific and enduring olfactory signature, thanks to the concentration of the essences used, which is never less than 16%.
These are created with the knowledge and skill of ancient apothecaries, using time-honored blending techniques that can often take several months. This length of time is essential if the perfume oils are to find the ideal condition to merge and form a final, perfect
harmony that is sublime and sumptuous, able to make the most important moments of life even more special.

Visconti perfumes go through distinct phases of production that include different macerations for each olfactory family (woods, spices, resins, roots etc..) Only later, and following established time sequences, are they infused together and allowed to mature over time in dark, quiet spaces.
It is this distinct procedure that allows us to obtain the highest level of olfactory perfection, vital if our perfume is to reach the highest level of quality which makes it so unique and desirable.
