The Inspiration
Sub rosa

The bath & body collection is inspired by the ancient Italian tradition of sub rosa - under the rose - signifying secrecy; paintings of roses on the ceilings of lavish banquet rooms were a reminder that words spoken under them should remain confidential.

A symbol of love and beauty, our luxurious red rose is sourced from Lombardia in Italy and extracted in its purest, most concentrated form - the absolute.

Absolute
Pure & precious

A highly concentrated aromatic oil, the absolute is extracted using a low temperature method that captures the rose's fragrance in its potent form.

The long and demanding process helps prevent damage to the delicate fragrance and produces an aroma that is richer and closer to the natural rose scent.

The Story
A secret unmasked

As our story unfolds, the rose's secrecy comes to life through the mysterious paintings of Lombardia's Late Renaissance period. The region's breathtaking landscape and classical, rich heritage set a dramatic backdrop for our intriguing film.

Watch our Contessa, a noble woman of irresistible beauty as she escapes her sumptuous palazzo. A letter unmasks an intoxicating secret...
