Rare, exclusive fragrances, like the little French bottles by Molinard from the turn of the century, the Lubin bottles or the bottles designed by Czech & Speake, which were Giovanni Agnelli’s favorites. Then there is Bond n°9, with the names of the streets of New York or, for the strong of heart, Blood Concept, four fragrances for the four blood types. Or the fragrances of Pierre Guillome, made using ultraviolet radiation.

Plying the ancient trade of the master glassblowers, and probably of his most ancient ancestor, Varisco Varischi, Marco, was the first to experiment in the Thirties with a technique for engraving on glass, which he taught his son Italy, along with the respect and love for those mysteries of earth and fire that can transform matter into beautiful objects. A master glassblower himself, in the Forties he was awarded at the Experimental School of Murano Glass.
