SAUF FRAGRANCES

For all the orgues of the world

Presentation

SAUF fragrances, the brand UNUM’s little sister, was created in the 2016. It is not only a tribute to pipe organs but also to the musicality of perfume and their custom made tempos. The scents of this collection are the olfactive translations of the founder Filippo Sorcinelli’s first passion; the pipe organ. This fervent admirer of French organ music expresses his two passions to the tones of the Great Organ of Notre-Dame de Paris (probably one of the most celebrated organs of the world) by creating the three SAUF perfumes to the organ music of the cathedral.

Filippo Sorcinelli was trained at the G. Rossini Conservatory in Pesaro, Italy, and at the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome. At the age of 13, he was already playing at at the cathedrals of Fano and Rimini. As a young haute couture designer for the Vatican, staying at Santarcangelo, he managed to get away from time to time and gain access to Tempio Malatestiano, the cathedral of Rimini, and to the small church of San Fortunato where he would play short pieces and further develop his dedication to the organ. Today, he combines his two passions, the organ and perfumes.

In the cathedral, there’s a tight bond between the organ and the incense. They unite the senses, one through hearing and the other through smell. The SAUF perfumes speak mystically of incense and have associations with the organ music of the Notre-Dame Cathedral. While thinking of this instrument and its musicality Filippo Sorcinelli started composing three perfumes that are incensed in mystery. He’s created three original interpretations of the mythical material of incense in all its forms, reinterpreted, restructured, reinvented. How much incense is there in each and all of us?
