Luciano Bertinelli, the Italian CEO of Salvatore Ferragamo Parfums, puts his espresso down as he searches for the English word to make his point. He eventually grasps it: veins.
He’s describing the beautiful blue marbling effect on the cap of the exclusive new fragrance, Bianco di Carrara. Each hand-milled cap of the limited edition scent is unique and made of marble from Carrara.
Located near the coast of the Ligurian sea, 130km northwest of Florence, marble has been quarried here for more than 2,000 years.
