The Merchant of Venice is a niche fragrance brand for the rich, powerful and opulent. Created by Mavive, it has its conceptual origins in the Venetian soul and involves different product lines based on the perfumery tradition of the Republic of Venice, its expertise in craftsmanship, and its century old trade with the Orient.
These amazing high-end perfumery line takes its inspiration from the precious essences and spices that the Venetian merchants of the past used to import from the main harbours of the world, via the Mude (sea routes), and subsequently traded them throughout Europe.
This collection of essences narrates the long journeys from the fascinating cities of the Orient to the enchantment of Venice, the main destination of the ancient Mediterranean routes. The spices, the aromas, and the rare essences were expertly selected by merchants among the most aspired and precious ones.
The Murano Collection offers six fragrances in bottles specifically based on the designs of the ancient creations by the Master glass-blowers of Murano.
