Masque Milano is haute Italian perfumery and one of the few Houses to credit the olfactory artist on each bottle. They step outside the lines of conventional perfume and at Pitti Fragranze in 2015, their display for the decadent, dandified floral Romanza was banned… the mannequins were considered lewd!

In Contributor Sebastian Jara's interview with Alessandro Brun, the inspiration for the perfumes, very different…Mandala evoking two monks singing and Times Square, an ode to NYC in 1993 when Times Square was not the Disneyland it is today… neon lights, grid lock (some things never change) street food, and when NYC girls in red lipstick and stiletto heels worked in offices or on the streets.-Michelyn Camen, Editor-in-Chief and NYC Girl
