Inspired by what has been backbone of the family business for 284 years – London and our home at 89 Jermyn Street. This fragrance, like its inspiration has the feel of refined elegance, understated class and style. Gin and the old copper stills are represented in a blend of citrus and green notes in the base, blended with juniper and coriander in the heart, supported with a masculine vetiver. The fresh crisp cotton of our shirt creating neighbours is completed in the top notes of amber, cedarwood and musk.

Inspired by what has been backbone of the family business for 284 years – London and our home at 89 Jermyn Street. This fragrance, like its inspiration has the feel of refined elegance, understated class and style. We’ve drawn in our take on notes of gin and the old copper stills, with a splash of lemon. An initial burst of citrus and green notes have been blended with the abiding masculine theme of vetiver. The vetiver which flows through the fragrance from its introduction to the base and is supported in the heart, where you will find juniper with a contemporary twist of coriander, a subtle compliment in gin creation. The fragrance brings together the London plane – London’s most common tree & those that still stand around the store today, and the fresh, crisp cotton of its renowned shirt makers all beginning with Henry Jermyn. The fragrance is therefore completed with a crisp accord of amber, cedar wood and musk creating the essence of a crisp cotton shirt and the stoic reliance of the London plane.

Topnotes: Bergamot Mandarin, Green Vetiver, Violet – Heart Notes: Coriander, Vetiver, Armoise, Juniper Berry – Base Notes: Amber, Cedarwood, Musk, Vetiver

Jermyn Street in 1730 was a world of enterprise, excitement and migration that brought with it knowledge and opportunity. From our shop on Jermyn Street in St James’s, Edward Bodenham was reminded by accident of his childhood when a delivery of fragrance was dropped and spilt outside the store, and for days the street smelt of fragrance. In his childhood, our fragrance was still made in the ‘mine’ below the store, making the street a permanent blend of sweet smell, and therefore the Jermyn Street ‘By Request’ was born out of the desire to celebrate our home at No 89.

Braveheart in a Romantic Era, sogni ricercati da Marius Creati

Braveheart in a Romantic Era

“L’uomo persuaso da un percorso iniziatico spinto verso il personale incontro con il lusso e l’avanguardia dello stile, una figura sospinta verso l’avanguardismo poetico, dettante icone codice come dettagli impeccabili. Cardine l’amore profondo e smisurato per la creatività.

Il Cuore, simbolo vivente per eccellenza, sede delle emozioni profonde e dell’anima, centro immaginifico del cosmo e fonte principale della vita, del potere, del coraggio e della forza. Figura alchemica verace, dimora della luce divina eretta negli esseri viventi, unica essenza dell’essere umano, nonché dimora segreta della coscienza, può essere trafitto e ammansito dai dardi di Eros, quale crocevia in cui s’incontrano odio e amore, paura e coraggio, dolore e gioia”.

Un nuovo anelito di stile tende all’evasione e all’amore per l’eccezionale, avverso a tutto ciò che possa definirsi abitudinario e mediocre, spinto a produrre emozioni intense e travolgenti. Marius Creati definisce l’uomo contemporaneo “meraviglioso” e “atipico”, “magico” e “misterico”, “feerico” e “primordiale”, “spettrale” e “divino” – definito a volte fuori contesto e dedito ad espressioni di sé singolari e irresistibili.

Cuore impavido in età romantica… Non semplicemente romanzesco o liricamente fantastico, l’uomo moderno coglie l’intima essenza della realtà, spinto dall’impeto della passione, orientato da un’istinto infallibile che lo induce verso una meta ambita senza trascurare lo spirito razionalista dell’Io, quale innegabile paladino della propria consapevolezza.

Attenta e accurata lavorazione artigianale dal sapore sartoriale, prodotto unico ed eccellente, esumazione di antichi dettagli, taglio esperto, materiali pregiati, tecniche innovative e tradizione per dare vita ad un manufatto di qualità superiore. Non semplici collezioni, ma vere chincaglierie di stile da indossare con disinvoltura. Materiali pregiati, ricchezza artigianale. Oro 24k, argento, bronzo e rame sono i metalli che adornano lo stile di Marius Creati, dando origine a minute creazioni dal carattere d’antan intese come piccoli oggetti d’arte contemporanei.

Noi siamo semplici oggetti del nostro comune desiderio

Braveheart in a Romantic Era

“The man persuaded by an initiatory path toward the personal encounter with the luxury and the avant-garde of the style, a figure pushed toward a poetic avant-gardism, dictating icons in code as impeccable details. Mainstay the deep and immeasurable love for creativity.

The Heart, a living symbol par excellence, seat of deep emotions and soul, imaginative center of the cosmos and the main source of life, power, courage and strength. Pure alchemic figure, abode of divine light erected in living beings, unique essence of human being, as well as secret dwelling of consciousness, can be pierced and tamed by the darts of Eros, such as crossroads where come up love and hate, fear and courage, pain and joy”.

A new longing of style tends to evasion and love for the exceptional, adverse to anything that could be described as routine and run-of-the-mill, prompted to produce intense and overwhelming emotions. Marius Creati defines the contemporary man “wonderful” and “atypical”, “magical” and “mystical”, “fairy” and “primordial”, “spectral” and “divine” – sometimes defined out of context and addicted to unique and irresistible self-expressions.

Braveheart in a romantic age… Not just romance or lyrically fantastic, modern man captures the essence of reality, driven by the force of passion, launched by an infallible instinct that leads him to a yearned aim without neglecting the rationalist spirit of the ego, which undeniable champion of his own consciousness.

Careful and accurate craftsmanship of a sartorial taste, unique and excellent product, exhumation of ancient details, expert cutting, precious materials, innovative techniques and tradition in order to create a product of higher quality. Not just simple collections, but real style trinkets to be worn with ease. High-quality materials, craftsmanship wealth. 24K gold, sterling silver, bronze and copper are metals that adorn the style of Marius Creati, giving rise to minute creations by a yesteryear character understood as small contemporary art objects.

We are mere valuables of our common longing

Si arricchisce con questi nuovi disegni la collezione AFFRESCHI di antoniolupi. Riccardo Fattori, ispirandosi alle Wunderkammer, le camere delle meraviglie, quelle stanze in cui i collezionisti, dal XVI al XVIII secolo, conservavano raccolte di oggetti straordinari, ha disegnato 5 temi: Wunderkammer/la stanza del musicista, Wunderkammer/giardino d’inverno, Wunderkammer/ la voliera, Wunderkammer/la stanza dell’esploratore. Presenze/assenze, citazioni, stratificazioni, vibrazioni cromatiche, caratterizzano questi lavori dal delicato impasto coloristico.

Il modello di cappa Futura è un ulteriore meraviglioso sviluppo della manifattura GUTMANN– la ventilazione a conca estraibile per un’aerazione invisibile. Minimalismo ed estetica sensuale sono gli aspetti strutturali dell’interazione armoniosa degli elementi in acciaio legato e di vetro, la funzionalità viene assicurata dall’innovativo dispositivo di aspirazione marginale in combinazione con l’impiego di filtri della condensa d’alta qualità. Premendo un pulsante il modulo scompare completamente nel piano di lavoro. Ventilazione(larghezza x profondità): 900 x 245 1200 x 245
