The name of the brand refers to Moorish art, but, as Cindy Guilleman emphasizes, the brand is Italian to the tips of the nails - even the local nose, Andrea Thero, was even entrusted with composing oriental compositions.

All Moresque fragrances are divided into three lines. White is more delicate, floral, and downright feminine, despite the fact that all compositions are announced as unisex.
Cindy dedicated Moreta perfume to one spectacular Spanish woman who amazed her with her aroma - they, together with the perfumer, tried to reproduce it from memory. It is composed of citruses, ylang-ylang, freesia, jasmine, rose, cedar and white musk.
Tamina and Diadema © Moresque
Tamima is a perfume allegory about the poetess and, concurrently, the chosen one of the Moroccan Sultan Ali ibn Yusuf. Her daring, bold, at the same time open and dreamy character she tried to convey with the help of notes of cashmeran, neroli, orange, eucalyptus and amber.
And Diadema was born thanks to a traditional Syrian cake: in front of Signora Guilleman, a whole pile of ingredients was mixed in one bowl, and already in the oven the cake was divided into two halves - black and white. So the scent sounds very contrasting: fresh floral notes, as well as cherry and orange on the one hand, sensual scents of vanilla, caramel and patchouli on the other.

The black line is much denser and more intense, and the stories themselves, which inspired their creation, are larger. Rand is the "flower of the desert": fragile yet unyielding. This fragrance with notes of iris, pineapple, pink pepper and sandalwood is dedicated to people who do not lose their fortitude even in the most difficult situations. Emiro is a scent of power, dignity and strength. He sings of the emirs, titled rulers of a number of countries of the East, in a composition of citrus fruits, Bulgarian rose, jasmine, geranium, leather and amber. Al Andalus was created in honor of one of the oldest Moorish provinces. The scent seems to warm with the rays of the Andalusian sun: first, a burning accord of saffron, black pepper and ginger is heard, then oud comes into play, followed by a mix of vetiver, labdanum, birch and tolu balsam.
The art collection is an ode to Italian design: all the bottles are hand-painted, so no two are alike. The first fragrance in the Aristoqrati line is the embodiment of the aristocratic and royal dynasties of the Middle East. It is composed of vetiver, geranium, spicy nutmeg, patchouli, amber and vanilla.
The second is Contessa, the freshest of the brand's fragrances: it was presented at a perfume exhibition in Milan in early March. It owes its creation to the fatal beauty Countess di Castiglione, who played an important role in the destinies of two European states in the middle of the 19th century. Inside is a sensual mix of bergamot, pink pepper, jasmine, rose, tonka bean, musk and vanilla. Outside - gold leaf "blazing" in a blood-red flame.>
