Mendittorosa Odori d’Anima did it again. Last year, Stefania Squeglia – Founder of this Neapolitan artistic perfume house surprised her fans with two Time Without Time Extraits: Rituale (the best fragrance of 2017’s Esxence according to Fragrantica) and Archetipo (Luca Maffei’s debuting creation for the brand). Both scents have been enthusiastically received by customers and also marked new era for the brand as the first creations introduced after establishing separate Stefania Squeglia’s brand: Talismans Collezione Preziosa.

Lacura – the third Time Without Time Extrait will be officially presented at the upcoming Esxence – The Scent of Excellence,


Mendittorosa’s 2018 portfolio – all eight scents including the latest Lacura.

Lacura has been inspired by one of favourite Stefania Squeglia’s songs and poems: ‘La Cura” by Franco Battiato.


Mendittorosa Odori d’Anima Lacura

Take care of your true self.
Take care of your life path.
Take care of your soul.
Wish yourself the best love song, the deepest love poem.
Wish yourself this Extrait.
Stefania Squeglia


Franco Battiato, song and poem “La cura”

To create comforting and soothing Lacura’s effect, Stefania Squeglia trusted in perfumer Anne Sophie Behaghel (Flair Paris), nose behind Mendittorosa’s Id, North and cult Talismans Le Mat.
