Luxury is a state of pleasure and comfort that’s sometimes associated with extravagance – but true luxury doesn’t have to be expensive. Some of the most luxurious sensations in the world are absolutely free: an extra hour of sleep for a new parent, some quiet time in the morning to watch the sunrise, a warm bath and cool sheets after a hard day’s work.
It’s that feeling of pleasure beyond the day to day. And of course, what we each find luxurious is subjective – a reflection of your unique tastes, senses, and life experience.
At Mozzafiato, our purpose is your luxury.
Let’s face it: You can buy soap at the grocery store. You can moisturize your hands with that tiny tube of lotion you got at a hotel back in 2017. Or … you can let us help you find the products that make you feel just a little more whole, a little more happy, a little more cared for. Let us help make your everyday a little more luxurious.
Maybe your luxury is insisting on products that are vegan and all organic. Prato Botanico out of the Puglia region of Italy, is a luxury, certified-organic skincare brand with carefully crafted creams, cleansers, and lip balms. This spa-quality line includes high-efficacy botanicals harvested by local farmers and extracted with expert precision to preserve the purity and quality of each active ingredient. And for a bright smile that’s cruelty-free, you can’t do better than the stylish selection of vegan Marvis toothpastes and mouthwashes that transform an every-day ritual into something remarkable, with both superior quality and fresh, unexpected flavors like Ginger Mint and Jasmin. These and many other brands in our collection offer luxury that’s good for you and good for the planet.
Or maybe what matters most to you is having ultimate trust in your brand based on its rich heritage and reputation built over decades, even centuries. Those are characteristics of the fine Italian heritage brands we support – brands like Proraso, founded in 1908 and known for creating the highest-quality shaving products in the world. And Farmacia SS. Annunziata 1561, which has maintained a special tradition of preparing exceptional skin-care products, niche perfumes and home diffusers since the 16th century! And then there’s Lorenzo Villoresi, the signature brand of the master perfumer Villoresi, each a unique artistic creation that transcends fashion and trends.
Perhaps you find luxury in a product’s ability to transport you to a place you love or dream of visiting. To find a product that’s deeply rooted in the beauty of a particular place is a rarity, and so we are particularly proud to feature lines by a set of artists who are intimately connected to the history, geography, and flora of the regions that inspire their creations. Acqua dell’Elba, from one of the most romantic islands in the Tuscan Archipelago, uses natural, raw materials inspired by the island and the Mediterranean Sea. Parco1923 products recreate the heady, natural fragrance of the Abruzzo, Lazio, and Molise National Park, a World Heritage Site and one of the most pristine, uncontaminated places in the world. (Parco1923’s Scarpetta di Venere fragrance is inspired by a rare flower from the region that only blooms for a few weeks in the spring.) And Acqua di Bolgheri, the vision of biologist Dr. Enio Taffi, grew from his deep love for Tuscany and its natural heritage – captured in products that are guaranteed eco-organic and Lav- and Vegan-certified.
Maybe your luxury is a scent that uniquely moves you and lifts your spirit. That pop of bright Italian energy, the brand Tuttotondo, is like taking a multisensory tour of Italy, with deodorants, scrubs, perfumes, and products for your skin, hair, and shave that are colorful, pleasing, and original. From Venice, we also feature Storie Veneziane by Valmont perfumes – harmonious compositions rich with the mystery, sensuality, and luxury of Venice itself.
Maybe you’re someone who relishes a visual feast and delights in beautiful design. With Ortigia Sicilia candles, soaps, home fragrances, shaving, and bath products, the gorgeous packaging by Sue Townsend is as much a treat as the elegant products inside. Similarly, every container in Milan’s Rudy Profumi line is a masterpiece of color and design that adds an enchanting touch to any room – and at an unbeatable price point, too.
And then, maybe you’re someone who finds luxury in all of these things, and yet above all enjoys being part of a larger story of beauty and wonder. Products from Carthusia – dating back to a 14th century legend from the Isle of Capri – carry you through centuries of romance and alchemy, as monks worked to distill local flowers and herbs to create the distinctive perfume formulas that Carthusia continues to produce today. Less ancient but just as beguiling is the story of Antica Barbiera Colla, the most famous barbershop in Italy that for more than a century has been a destination for people from across Italy and Europe. Their distinctive hair and facial hair care products reflect this rich and enduring tradition.
At Mozzafiato, we help you match your own sense of luxury with our one-of-a- kind, curated collection of fine Italian heritage beauty products. These products reside in your intimate spaces, your quiet times of day, and touch your skin and the air in your home. Nothing so integral to your life should ever be “meh.” You want products that soothe your senses and enliven your spirit – that bring you comfort and pleasure.
