Philtrum
A NEW METHOD TO EXPERIENCE SCENT.



represents Tonatto Profumi’s scented design collection; a new method to experience scent. The point of departure is the paper filter, tool of the perfumer used at Tonatto’s laboratory during the production process.

 

WHY SCENTED DESIGN

An emotional experience, to live scent three-dimensionality and beyond awareness.
A new giuoco (game) is born, delicate, scented and beautifully crafted where perfumes are meant to be mixed and played with.
Redefined, the filters become design perfume cribs, in their different diameters; objects that favour an active dialogue with its users, urging engagement not only with the olfactory stimuli, but also visual and tactile ones.

From ancient Greek: φίλτρον philtron, lit. "love charm".

PHILTRUM


Spell Light Big

A slender brass sculpture holds the largest filter and gradually spreads the scent through the heat of the light.
A warm, nearly oriental, atmosphere to experience the elegance of the scent and touch it. Thanks to the system of magnets, the filters can be easily changed to allow anyone to perfume their days in ever new ways.

PHIL


Spell Light Small

A smaller version, a bedside lamp accompanies and scents your sweet dreams.
The medium diameter filters meet the warmth of the light and release the chosen fragrance. An object that becomes a goodnight ritual.
