On the 19th of May 1957, Alexandre Pozzo di Borgo was born.
Passionate about extreme sports, this adventurer of the great outdoors inspired a fragrance that is warm, powerful and mysterious.
19 MAI 1957 induces an immersion in the heart of midsummer Corsican “maquis”, when the pines are infused with the scent of hot stones and evoke the aroma of gingerbread. A fragrance for strong personalities, whose simple presence intrigues and reassures.
Each drop of this fragrance contains the memory of a trip to an arid and rocky landscape, sunburned, where the salty mist of the sea comes to caress eucalyptus, cistus, lavender and oregano. Distant scents of powdered heliotrope and of liquorous immortelle offer an image of a soft and cottony case, leaving only a sensual, amber imprint on the skin.
