PHILOSOPHY OF MAISON
Tonatto Profumi, is not only product, the fragrances of the maison, in their body and the home declinations, in fact, offer the opportunity to outline one’s olfactory portrait and complete the identity of the environments in which we live. There is a real olfactory culture behind the brand that passes first through the experience, to be lived on the body. An active experience to be lived at the Olfactory Galleries, with the various workshops offered by Tonatto, or in the most familiar places such as our own home. Here, thanks to the interaction with specially designed objects that invite to a sort of intimate greeting, almost a ritual, people can engage in an olfactory journey, and (re) find their proxemic space, establishing a connection with the elements, body and time in which they live.
The company collaborates with leading museums and exhibitions, interpreting evoked olfactory appearances in famous works of art such as paintings, sculptures, moving images and notes that vibrate the air.
In 2017, the maison continues its path related to art, creating an olfactory portrait for one of Caravaggio's works: "The Supper at Emmaus." The work is then studied under a new key to offer visitors a unique experience, which involves the sense of smell as well as sight. An unexpected fragrance, a strong symbolism and a secret ingredient that has emerged through collaboration with Generoso Urciuoli, archaeologist and author of "Archeoricette". Through the knowledge of Urciuoli, Tonatto has learnt about the habits of the first century d.C., the same habits painted by Caravaggio in 1601, capable of giving the work an olfactory component unique and authentic of its kind.
