Moresque research brings to light its fourth collection, the finest of all: the Gold Collection. Three olfactory jewels captured in bottles painted with pure gold
The oriental inspirations that have contributed to Moresque’s success around the world take us on a new journey towards the purity and perfection of the universe. In this sense, the three fragrances are inspired by nature’s essential elements – water, fire and air – in a crescendo of sophistication and refinement.
Gold is the dominant theme of the Gold Collection, a concentration of nobility and brilliance. The most desired metal reflects the spirit and expression of wealth as well as the emotions that gold conveys: patience, amazement, wonder.
The Gold Collection is the epitome of preciousness; a collection that safeguards the oldest and traditional recipes of Arabic perfumery. An exceptional know-how that dates back to the dawn of time, and that Moresque reinterprets to revive the essence of emotions, the energy of substance and the distilled perfection of nature through its elements.
The Gold Collection is a tribute to tradition, as well as an elegant allusion to the Arabic men’s cloaks (Bisht, بشت ), rich in ornaments and precious embroideries, and worn for important occasions. The collection also evokes the dazzling beauty of the desert but also the absolute femininity of women’s gestures, light veils and tinkling jewelry. It is a combination of art, suggestions, knowledge and wonders that comes to life from the heart of the Arab world and that is filtered through water, air and fire: the roots of all that is immutable and eternal.
The most valuable and sought after raw materials shape the soul of the three masterpieces and artistic compositions where rarity becomes a tangible ideal. Gold embraces, protects, preserves the treasures of nature transformed into an olfactory embroidery and externally materialized by graphic scratches.
The Gold Collection’s bottles are jewels of art, made by renowned Tuscan decorators who, from generation to generation, pass on their secrets such that each piece is unique and inimitable. Each reference is a treasure of absolute Italian craftsmanship that encapsulates the mastery in the art of grinding as well as the purity of gold applied by brush.
Fiamma is a hypnotic and sophisticated fragrance that tells about the contact point between the light of the fire and that of the soul; a dance of elements between the visible and the invisible. FIAMMA is a story that takes place in the evening when the blazing sun begins its descent to hide behind the horizon. The temperature drops rapidly and the only trace of warmth that remains is that of a fire that enchants our eyes. The incandescent tongues of flame grow and take different forms: they are passion and ardor, the vital energy reaching towards the sky and infinity. For those who observe it, the continuous transformation of the flames awakes an inner spark: the magic of light dances and charms the most sensitive spirits.
With Fiamma, the embers’ heat draws an imaginary line with that of the heart. Its composition is the result of a dance of elements: Patchouli unveils its high quality through chocolate hints, slightly bittersweet, while Myrrh wraps the senses with its richness, adding a touch of sacredness. Calmness and heat are in every breath, and at the core of the bouquet that reveals a surprising accord of Musk, Resins, Amber and Leather matched with sweet hints of Honey and Vanilla.

Aurum is a bright fragrance that describes the first rays of the sun, the light at dawn and those precious minutes of quietness. The waves make peace with the clear morning light and sway in a steady rhythm, drawing lines on the surface of the sea. Aurum is also the evocative portrait of women walking by the sea, close to each other, sharing secrets, while the air gets filled with a mix of their scents and the warm wind caresses their hair. The harmonious movements of the clothes and the delicate tinkling of the golden jewels suggest grace and innate class.
The composition of Aurum speaks of serenity which is expressed by an elegant and distinguishing prelude of Saffron. Styrax adds richness to the bouquet, giving it a sweet and sensual soul. The base accords close the dance with Guaiac wood, a refined and nuanced note extracted from a special plant.

Heart: Balsam Fir, Styrax, Myrrh

Oroluna is an ethereal and mystical fragrance inspired by the one essential, yet elusive element of life: air. Breath is vital, infinite, immense and knows no boundaries. Its own movement remains intangible but crucial to life. The air can be grasped and seen only when it becomes wind, when it moves objects or nature. The sense of smell can experience it through a scent carried by a breeze: odors are volatile molecules that can reach heights and depths impossible to touch.
The Oroluna bouquet opens on a sparkling accord as fresh as the morning air. Cardamom, Pink Pepper and Grapefruit tease the sense of smell and anticipate the profound woody notes carried by the wind, as it moves through branches and plants. At this point, the dance of refined incense initiates: its dryness reaches our most intimate memories, infusing peace and serenity to our thoughts while wrapping the mind with its magical presence. The most precious Oud gives a three-dimensional feel to the composition and, along with musk, adds a graceful and unmistakable touch.
