A thousand years ago, the Phoenicians arrived to found their centre of ancient exchange. Under golden Roman yoke the port gained gleaming palaces and mosaics.
Ostrogoths, Vandals, and Byzantines alternately wrecked and rebuilt the land. Moorish and Berber leaders dug irrigation and harvested new fruits - the Bergamot oranges they planted still grow today.
Norman kings then wrested the island back from the East. Garibaldi's thousand redshirts galloped through, and Italy was born. All those centuries of interleaved layers, one bled into the other, remain palpable in the air, the water, the art, the architecture, the spirit.
"Palermo" opens with Bigarade and Sicilian Bergamot. The heart consists of Fresh Musks and Rose Absolute and reveals a base of Skin Musks and Ambrette Flower.
