The golden and fragile flowers are picked by hand early in the morning. Ylang-ylang grows from the Cananga Odorate trees which occur in the Comoren and La Réunion islands in Zanzibar and Nossi-Bé.
When Lorenzo Villoresi started his company, he created a series of 'solo-themed' fragrances inspired by the world of perfume classics. Among those creations were Ambra, Garofano (now discountinued), and Vetiver. In the years that followed, other creations saw the light of day such as Incensi, Ylang Ylang and Tropicana, the latter a bold fruity floral fragrance. However, because of the irregular availability of some of the raw materials used for these creations, the production of these perfumes came to an end. Yet these fragrances had stolen the hearts of many enthusiastic followers of Villoresi and they encouraged him to re-release their favourites. The Vintage Collection is now only available in his atelier and selected stores such as Perfume Lounge.

Lorenzo Villoresi from Florence got inspired to distill essential oils and start making perfumes himself in 1991 by his many trips to the Middle East and its rich variety of fragrances.
His talent for creating perfumes was confirmed in 2006 when he won the Prix Francois Coty. This is thé most important acknowledgement for the artistic career of a perfumer, and he was the first to win this price as an independent perfumer!
The most loved scent from Lorenzo is Teint de Neige. A unique to the core powdery fragrance.
When visiting Florence, a trip to Lorenzo's atelier and museum at Via de'Bardi is surely worth your while. He works from his family home, which has a wonderful view over the river the Arno. In the house next to his own, Lorenzo opened a Centre-Academy of the Art of Perfumes in 2018, which is a knowledge centre regarding scents. With a museum, fragrance garden and education on scents and perfumes.
