We are in the Age of Enlightenment, in the 18th century AC, when extreme sensuality meets refinement. Barry Lyndon, the character of William Makepeace, interpreted by Ryan O‘Neal in the movie of Stanley Kubrick, is who Maria Candida Gentile had in mind when she created the Barry Lyndon Fragrance. The walk of the young Barry Lyndon with his horse, resonate in the mist, along little paths in the country side covered with heather flowers and peat. Scents of fresh leather of his saddle mixes in the air. It is an harmony, a vibration which Maria Candida felt when walking in the pristine mountains of the Val d‘Aosta in the Italian Alps.
