Paglieri 1876 Genua, Venetiae, Florentia, Romae, Amalfiae and Agrigentum Eaux de Parfum
Paglieri 1876 is a new Italian brand of unisex fragrances marketed as a niche label, which takes inspiration from six historic cities of Italy, but also from the Roman origins of the country, and finally from the Made in Italy label of quality...
The new house was developed by Selectiva Italy, which is part of the Paglieri Group Companies, the group which has Aquolina and Pink Sugar in their portfolio, a Sephora darling.
The Latin names of the six fragrances reveal the reverence for the glorious imperial past of the brand: Genua, Venetiae, Florentia, Romae, Amalfiae and Agrigentum. The compositions themselves lay emphasis on a significant proportion of natural ingredients, which calls attention to the centuries-old tradition of perfumery in Italy.

The beauty of Italy is often celebrated in Italian perfumery which not infrequently likes to revolve around the notion of Bella Italia and its landmarks. In French perfumery for instance the city of Paris is more overwhelmingly celebrated. It's of course a reflection of the history of late political unification of Italy. This is the latest expression of this fragrant cultural and political history.
