Out there, the snow-covered Nevsky Prospekt, and a sumptuous Art Noveau building. Inside, a large bookstore. And, on the first floor, an elegant cafè. As water is poured in the cup, the infusion unleashes its most characteristic notes. Black tea, heavy and intense. A floral note, sharp and biting. And that unmistakably dry and smoky aftertaste given by the caravanserai campfires, meant to keep the precious tea cargo dry in the never-ending journey through Siberia. The fresh mint leaves give a pleasant fresh touch to the hot water.
Notes include mint, black pepper, raspberry, black tea, magnolia, everlasting flower, leather accord, birchwood, incense, and cistus-labdanum.
- Two lads, Alessandro and Riccardo, with plenty of shared passions. Passions for traveling, reading, music. They love design objects, natural materials, hand-made details. They believe in – and adhere to – commitment at work, as well as a joie de vivre outlook to life. They are two die-hard dreamers, who resolved to bring their emotions to life. In the year 2010 – after years of research in scents and essences in Grasse and artisans across Italy, they established Masque. Like good musical directors, they learnt how to orchestrate a wide and well assorted group of maîtres parfumeurs and artisans. Fascinated by perfumes and fine fragrances, they strengthened their background by starting an educational programme in olfactory techniques (encompassing study of the reference books, attendance to seminars and training courses).
