At age 23, for the graduation thesis, she interviewed the movie director Tony Richardson in Hollywood and thought she would have worked as a screenwriter or as a film critic. A few years later Mariangela Rossi denied her first love, the cinema, in order to write about luxury hotels and travel. In the savannah, in the desert, in tropical forests, in exotic atolls, in big urban cities and in small unknown destinations. Born in Genoa, with Tuscan origins but based in Milan since many years, she deeply loves New Yorks, where she has been living, and is fond of perfume, oriental art, photography, silence, spas, meditation, peonies, interior design, gardening and interesting histories. During her travels she met the most famous fragrance creators and was close to them in rose plantations and in laboratories in Grasse and Paris. As a pioneer, in 2004, she published “Il Libro del Profumo “. Other books follow, dedicated to health & spas, eco-sustainability with style, and again olfactive culture. A longtime contributor at Elle, she todays writes for iO Donna, AMICA, How to Spend It and others, including some in-house corporate magazines, and keep on travelling in search of curiosities, hotels and news for her readers. She also launched a line of exclusive handcrafted candles and ambient fragrances, as a small tribute to the masterpieces of Italian art through the sense of smell, ideal for sophisticated but practical travelers. As an expert, she creates also unique experiences through perfume, from bespoke fragrances to scented tours in Milan: itineraries linked to the city, where she teaches to “smell” and to discover its most secret and unusual side through her preferred addresses.
