In the wild lands of 19th-century South America, two different families crossed paths. Their encounter helped shape the future of modern-day Argentina. 140 years later the direct descendants of the Mitre and Morrison families met in Italy and fell in love.
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.
