Atacama Eau de Parfum
True love waits.
In South America, beyond the Northwest Argentine border, lies Atacama, the highest desert on earth, a majestic extension of salt and sands which changes color according to the seasons.
Rain is scarce - Atacama is said to be the driest place on earth - but it just takes a few drops to awaken the seeds which patiently await underground and turn it pink with flowers.
Why we're addicted: A beautiful metaphor for Love patiently awaiting the kiss that kindles it.
Salt Grains, Freesia, Jasmine, Clary Sage, Tonka Bean, Cashmere Wood.
The inspiration for ATACAMA takes ALTAIA back to South America, where its story began 150 years ago. On the border between Argentina and Chile lies the most arid desert on earth. Rainfall is very scarce - some parts of Atacama haven't seen rain in over 500 years - but when a few drops fall, the whole desert floor comes alive with flowers - a beautiful metaphor for Love, patiently awaiting the kiss that kindles it.

ALTAIA is their story.
It's a love story 140 years in the making. In 2012 the chance discovery of the extraordinary events that centuries ago linked their families together in Argentina over a century ago inspired them to create a new perfume collection, which they called ALTAIA.
ALTAIA is an acronym for "A Long Time Ago In Argentina" - is a celebration of Marina and Sebastián’s love for the art of perfumery and the power of storytelling through scent, as well as the extraordinary circumstances of their shared past.
Each Eau de Parfum contains olfactory elements evocatively associated with a strand of their interlaced past and present, lovingly crafted to produce fragrances that are both timeless and contemporary.
