Legends re-experienced on your skin

A place of transit and a crossroads in history, Calabria has its roots in the myths of ancient Magna Graecia. The legends that re-echo today over these shores across the abysses of time re-live in the fragrances of Acqua degli Dei.

The Sybil that gave auspices to the navigators

The legend of Manto re-lives in the fragrant notes of Acqua degli Dei. The priestess who offered answers to passing navigators who were seeking a safe route and good auspices. Legend has it that even Ulysses sought out the priestess in order to know his future before facing the monsters Scylla and Charybdis. Today, Manto’s messages have become original “Messages in a bottle” to make your own and to tie onto your wrist.

The tales whose origins are lost in the mists of time still re-echo on these shores today

The myth of the maidens who were transformed into monsters

Acqua degli Dei dedicates two original fragrances to the famous legends of Scylla and Charybdis, the two maidens who were transformed into monsters that had their lairs in the Straits of Messina. The legend of Scylla is re-evoked in a fragrance that symbolises the “power of love”. Charybdis is told in the fragrance that evokes the “call of infinity”.

The scent of legendary events, great heroes and charismatic figures diffuses through the air.


The famous test of Ulysses and his companions, called upon to save themselves from the enchanting sirens’ song, is captured in two Acqua degli Dei essences: the Eau de Parfum ULISSE, dedicated to our hero of great strength and character, and the Eau de Parfum CANTO DELLE SIRENE, a fragrance suspended between earth and sea, a symbol of the irresistible eroticism of the legendary sirens.
