The Renaissance of the Gothic


In 2001, Filippo Sorcinelli, created LAVS, an atelier that realizes handmade liturgical vestments and other objects for the catholic cult. The first perfume extract of UNUM, LAVS, was inspired by the holy oils of the Mass of the Chrism. It was initially used to perfume the ornements of the sacred vestments. The LAVS atelier realized sacred vestments for, among others, the two last popes: Benedetto XVI and Francesco. 

Filippo, born in Mondolfo (Italy), started his artistic journey with a Master of Arts in Fano and worked for many contemporary artists. In parallel, he studied music and specialized at the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome. He was an art director of many music festivals and participated in international exhibitions and art installations with among other, the Louvre Museum. He is co- founder and art director of UNUM perfumes. 

UNUM is a mix of avant-garde and classicism, born from the idea to make the sacred vestments of the LAVS atelier even more unique. But also to embrace a new, more elitist and wider public beyond the Vatican. Perfumes that allow for a renaissance of the Middle Age and the Gothic movement. Against the superficiality of the arts and life.
