Gritti is the name of the niche perfume brand founded in 2010
by Dr. Luca Gritti. It is also the name of the Venetian family with roots going back to the 16th century. The perfume house borrows from the fragrance recipes written by alchemist Alvise Gritti, who was inspired and influenced by his travels between Venice and the Far East. Alvise, a Venetian ambassador to the Ottoman court, was also a noted scholar and merchant, and his father, Andrea, was the 77th Grand Doge of Venice.
