Ombra delle 5 is a collaboration between A.W. Bauer & Co, Ben Gorham, founder of Swedish perfume house Byredo, and award winning Italian designer Luca Nichetto. The team has created the exclusive perfume to reflect the craftsmanship and passion of bespoke tailoring. Ombra delle 5 is launched today at A.W. Bauer & Co in a limited edition of 30 pieces.
The scent changes its character depending on the person wearing it, which makes it as unique as a tailor made suit.
The experience of the fragrance and its bottle design was inspired by the change in light and pace which occurs in the late afternoon, when the sun is so low that daylight turns golden and it feels like time is slowing down for a moment.
The perfume is carefully poured into handmade Murano glass bottles with striking facets that change colour with fluctuating daylight and colour temperatures.
Photographer Massimo Gardone has interpreted Ombra delle 5 in 10 pictures, and was exhibited at A.W. Bauer & Co during the first week of February.
Skyline, sunrise and sunset are interchanging in a shifting balance. The time, is a moving image of eternity.
