1 “Some say she is a witch, but she couldn’t care less, what others think doesn’t matter to her, she makes love for fun and she’s not even that keen on it, she doesn’t make any promises and never loses her head. Saturday night she goes to her club, with her best girlfriends, all hungry for love, then, like a real queen she guides them all, tells them who is the most handsome and orders them not to touch him, he’s hers”.
We are at the end of the sixteenth century: right in the middle of the Counter-Refor-Mation period, in a tiny town in southern Piedmont. The power of the Church authorities has reached its peak, having expanded to influence consciences everywhere. Any possible breach of normal behaviour or the set rules is seen in a poor light. A girl of extraordinary beauty is picked upon because of her rebellious temperament, her lack of regard for public opinion and perhaps also because of the envy and fear aroused by her allure. Her soft body, the way she looks at others, her curiosity about the world and her self-assuredness both attract and frighten. The lack of any solid proof against her and all the attempts made by her loved ones to save her are in vain, she has no intention of begging for a pardon she feels she has done nothing to warrant. The purifying stake awaits her and the paradox is that the only person to show her any pity is her executioner, who gives her a substance that knocks her unconscious at the crucial moment.
A substance as stupefying as her penetrating, sensual eyes, which dizzily bewitch anyone she looks at.

The Story of a Passion – The Terenzi family has ancient origins dating back to the Roman days of the tales of Horace. The surname derives from Tres enses (three swords), and fades back in time into the cradle of civilisation. We can just mention here the Latin playwright Publius Terentius Afer, and the traces of our family in 15th century Rimini, with the nobleman Gabriele Terenzi, lover of art and alchemy, who died around 1450. A race of leaders, explorers, artists and – above all – inventors.
An olfactory memory that guides his children, Tiziana and Paolo, in their ongoing search for a colossal new challenge amid the work carried out by their predecessors. Tiziana and Paolo share everything, uniting their skills in a blend that could probably never have emerged from one person alone. The family bond holds them firmly together, just as the oak sinks its roots into the ground, providing the fruit of knowledge for generations living beyond time. The music of their forebears still plays in their hearts, and the journey is always towards the sea. Even today, the focus is still on unique creations, natural and valued raw materials, and painstaking attention to detail, because every single creation that leaves the premises is a child of this family; it speaks of men and women who’ve knowingly encompassed the “absolute” in a spot of perfume, and “life” in a “spot of wax”.
HAYARI Paris’ women’s and men’ s fragrances… unique perfumes for outstanding women
Like the women behind the inspiration – the subtle, elegant and sensual scents featured in the Hayari Paris fragrance collection draw on passion, seduction and mystery.
Encouraged by his old accomplice, Hugues Alard, who has always been in love with and evolved in the perfumery world, the tantalizing world of HAYARI has become even more fascinating with the addition of fragrances celebrating love and the delicious complexity of women.
A perfume is said to reveal one’s personality and it is quite naturally that Nabil and Hugues drew their inspiration from women to create subtle, elegant and sensual fragrances embodying the various facets of their personality: passionate, seductive and mysterious in turns.

Olfactory portrait of a Gentleman – 1946
“A fougère accord that for its time was avant-garde. With aquatic, sparkling, evocative top notes of fizzy water and bitter soda to accentuate his positive vision of the future.
A fougère accord that symbolises his devotion to his family, because it is in itself a reference to nature as sanctuary, thanks to its notes of natural origin.
A fougère accord that appeared for the first time in the late nineteenth century in two innovative fragrances by two illustrious Maisons, which, however, was not successful until the Sixties when its progressive notes saw it become a contemporary classic. This highlighted his aperture to the world, his interest in realities other than Italy.
A fougère accord to reveal his great charm and search for that special detail that made him attractive. This is a man who stands out for his sophistication. He wears a fragrance that belongs to nobody, emphasising his individuality, courage and strong personality, attractive to many women.
Finally, a fougère accord for his link with tradition. The past guides him, in order to build a better future. A past made up of evocative smells such as tobacco, the scent of shaving cream, notes of vanilla and the tonka bean.”
