A wood as a group of trees, plants that fit in a suitcase, and trees sprouting not so far from a cocktail bar, at the back, in the Beijing’s botanical garden.
A country house with a damp and cool wine cellar from which it is possible to get a glimpse of the porch, the citrus trees in the pots, the cypresses down the alley.
A night of fumes and shadows, resin remains on the shears, alcohol to clean the blades.
The thought of a lazy moment, a bedroom made for love and drawing.
Where the incense was burning they placed, just a few days ago, a vase full of flowers.
It’s the gate to a courtyard, the carriage of a train, a boat in winter.

Antonio Gardoni produces small batches of perfumes 2-3 times a year. Each batch results in roughly 250-300 bottles. Every batch is a limited edition due to the artisanal nature of their production.
The formula doesn't change, but the perfumes can smell different from batch to batch. Each perfume contains almost 80% of natural organic materials sourced from a large number of independent producers around the world. The same product can change quite drastically due to weather and seasonal conditions, climate change, pollution and so on. These variations affect the final result and inevitably modify the perfume smell profile.
