Ghost in the shell is a unique perfume, to bring a modern message of evolution. With its notes of cherry blossom, red apple and vanilla it offers an incomparable sensory experience. A perfume that underlines the human paradox, ready to wear at will.

From the bottom of the matter, rise up.


It was a night with a pale moon, a night at the end of the 20th century, a night in which the old world ends and the new one begins, a night in which one trembles, clutching the crucifix against one's heart, in the passage towards fatherhood.

That night I chose Dan Simmons' novel Hyperion as a crucifix, a majestic work of science fiction that celebrates the infinite legend of the French Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, researcher, paleontologist, theologian and philosopher of the 20th century.

And I read, drawing great comfort from it, up to the reflections of the dawn, up to the first flashes of light from the east. I read about the future of man, the celebration of transhumanism and the evolutionary leap of humanity augmented by machines.

I have seldom loved a book so much, seldom loved a thinker so much. And that evening I read what man thought he saw in the tombs of time.

I'm in love with words at the service of matter, when they fertilize each other to bring poetry into our bottles. Thus, a few years ago I was speaking of the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin to one of the last living vestiges of this triumphant 20th century, and I said: “So, Teilhard de Chardin: a brilliant forerunner?”. A look, a silence and four words as the only answer, four unexpected words in my father's whisper: “GHOST IN THE SHELL”.

Here is the birth certificate that creates the soul of the perfume. The rest is poetry to be experienced on your own skin.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin died in 1955, but his soul travels forever. This perfume continues this journey by merging with Japanese artist Masamune Shirow to transcend the spirit of the Earth.

Combining biotech and natural ingredients, Ghost in the shell silently celebrates the wake of the future and in a whisper heralds the coming of the day when, by providence or by chance, assembled and organized humanity will merge consciousnesses in the infosphere to create a higher and will pass from inertia to life, just as the molecules come together to create new life, and the great evolutionary leap will take place, the starting and finishing point of transhumanism.

This perfume is the future and comes from the 20th century.

The Ghost in the shell, a perfume that tells the story of the human phenomenon and its paradox, to be worn ab libitum, as desired. A perfume as a propagation towards others, to become the engine of evolution: in short, a modern perfume.

From the bottom of matter, arise!
