Fragrance Spotlight: Tiziana Terenzi Kirke

Kirke is a fruity, sweet, and gently musky scent created by Paolo Terenzi in 2015.

It is a unisex scent with a hint of sweetness, and is beloved by all who try it.

Many of the fragrances found in the Tiziana Terenzi collection take inspiration from Italy in some way. Kirke is inspired by the enchantress, and minor Goddess, Circe from Greek mythology. She is most famously known for her part in the Odyssey by Homer, a story about the long journey home for our hero, Odysseus, after the Trojan War.

Odysseus and his men land on Aeaea, the island of Circe. All of Odysseus’ men are transformed into pigs, and Circe and Odysseus become lovers for a time. Eventually, all of the men are restored to their human form, and they all return to their journey to find their way home. 

Kirke blends the aromas of Italy into a fragrance that is like a magical potion created by Circe herself. 

Top Notes: Passion Fruit, Peach, Raspberry, Cassis, Pear, Warm Sand
Heart Notes: Lily of the Valley
Base Notes: Heliotrope, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Patchouli, Musk

The fruits blend with the gentle floral essences of Lily of the Valley and Heliotrope, while a Warm Sand Accord that grounds the sweetness. Sandalwood and Patchouli bring a gentle depth as Musk brings in a soft sensuality to the overall feel of the scent. Vanilla brings a touch of sweetness that plays well off of the fruits from the opening.

If you close your eyes, you can almost imagine you’re in a room overlooking the sea. Circe is nearby, blending fruits, herbs, grasses, and other mysterious things into a magical concoction. Sea mist is in the air, sweat, the scent of the damp grasses mingling in with the mineral hints of the stones you sit inside. It is a mysterious, sensual, and magical experience.

Kirke is a much sought after fragrance, and you can find it at Parfumerie Nasreen in Seattle!
