Within the ancient city walls, a smell of incense from the churches floats in the air over wet cobbled streets, mingling with smoke from coal-roasted chestnuts. A pale sun barely warms old walled gardens, where violets, irises and ferns thrive inside their glass-domed sanctuaries. In the surrounding Tuscan hills, damp soil covered with dried autumn leaves harbours the season’s first white truffles. This is the time when olives ripen – black and intense – yielding the first oil of the year, rough, spicy and floral. Sienne l'Hiver captures the essence of the Tuscan city of Siena - the elegant and sophisticated heart of Italy – a world of discreet and familiar sensations, evoked by an unusual combination of flower petals, rhizomes, woods and resins.
