MEET LUCA GRITTI
THE REBEL OF ITALIAN NICHE PERFUMERY
The rebel of Italian niche perfumery and Gritti Venetia’s owner, Luca Gritti is a self-taught perfumer that works in the wake of an ancient and noble family tradition that has its roots in the 16th century Venice. The Gritti dynasty is famous for being one of the most important Venetian spices importers of all time. Still, it is also a family of politicians: the Doge of Venice Andrea Gritti and his son Alvise Gritti, famous merchant and diplomate.
The passion and long-term expertise in perfume ingredients led Luca Gritti to the world of niche fragrances. Initially a successful producer of high-end perfume brands, he launched Gritti Venetia in 2009 and made a revolution in the niche fragrance business, giving it a touch of luxury perfume: not only the highest selection of raw materials but the attention to each detail, from White Collection hand-made caps to Gritti Privé’s velvet boxes.
