OUR INSPIRATION

The Salerno School of Medicine was the first and most important medical institution in Europe in the Middle Ages

Medicine has ancient origins, and Hippocrates must be credited for liberating medicine from the confines of esotericism and revolutionising medicine as a scientific discipline.

In Italy, this new wisdom was evident in the prestigious Salerno School of Medicine.

It is said that there was once a meeting of four teachers: Helmus, Adela, Ponto, and Salerno – A Jew, an Arab, a Greek and a Salernitine. This multicultural exchange of knowledge gave rise to ars medica and the establishment of this prestigious school.

This secular school maintained the fundamental importance of nutrition and promoted a healthy lifestyle by following the principles of a cheerful mind, adequate rest, and a moderate diet.

In the Salerno School, Medichesse or Medical Women contributed greatly to this knowledge.

Scholars of Herbalism and Doctors, including Trotula De Ruggero, wrote widely in the fields of medicine and practiced as a gynaecologist. Medichesse were graduate herbal doctors in the year 1000 who practiced medicine, also treating female patients. Collectors, herbalists, doctors, and teachers, the Medichesse shared their knowledge for the wellbeing of all.

PERFUMES AS A CURE

“Never neglect the physic condition, availing oneself of good perfumes and aromas”

With twenty years of experience in the field of herbalism and wellness, the moment arrived to start a new venture in a part of Trieste rich in history, heritage, and culture.

A few steps from the sea, where once important maritime trade took place amongst warehouses full of salt and spices, you will find historic Via di Cavana and the home of our store.

The Medichesse’s spirit inspires this new project that today we are launching as graduate herbalists.

The fragrance of herbs has surrounded us for many years in our store, perfumes freely given to us by nature. We recognise these fragrances and when skilfully combined by artisan perfumers, ‘perfume’ is created. This is how Medichesse Erbe and Profumi comes to be.

MY PASSION

WOMEN HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THE OFFICIAL GAURDIANS OF THE SECRETS OF HERBS AND PLANTS, AND BY THEIR NATURE, THE CAREGIVERS

I have always searched for beauty and harmony. I have found my balance in natures perfection. While I was studying Biological Science, I observed cellular perfection and understood that in nature everything is always in its correct place.

In the laboratory, I would work with laurel, impregnating my hands with its strong and aromatic scent. Throughout my life, I wanted to stay connected to herbs and their essences and have practiced the art of herbalism for 20 years – imparting ancient knowledge combined with today’s modern science.

So, with this knowledge of nature and perfect chemistry and the soul of a researcher, I have chosen to enter the world of perfume where balance is revealed in every single drop.

"For perfume makers, each smell carries with it a multitude of associations and impressions that must be carefully analyzed and understood before the sum of all its parts emerges: smells are complex, secret and cannot be revealed without a proof of love"

Jean-Claude Ellena

NICHE PERFUMES


In the fascinating world of perfumery, there is a very special place dedicated to designer or artisan perfumery, also known as “niche perfumery”.

These perfumes are works of art, sometimes even uniquely numbered where perfumers instil the highest levels of creativity, innovation, and create the most refined, stylistic, and avant-garde projects. These “noses” or composers are inspired by absolute beauty.

The great care in choosing the raw material, whether of natural or molecular origin, is the basis of this perfumery. Each perfume is a jewel of rare beauty and unique personality, its packaging reminiscent of a jewellery box where every element tells its story.

People buy niche perfumes because they recognise themselves in their complicated beauty and unique alchemy.
