Forth wife of the notorious Sigismundo Malatesta, Issota was well known as a practiced lady of the sexual arts. Her liaison with Siggy was a huge scandal. Lucky she was as much of a sociopath as he was and so they were quite a love match. There was a rumor going around that Sigismundo erected a temple to himself (or church if you want to see it that way) he had images of himself and Issota put everywhere in it. The pope heard about this and had Sigismundo excommunicated for it, he called it blasphemous. When the pope’s man came to Malatesta’s home city of Rimini, Sigismundo was reported to have sat calmly and have the articles of excommunication read, stood up, marched down to the pope’s man, grabbed him, turned him around and buggered him in front of all the good citizens of Rimini. He then organized an army and advanced on the papal residence in Rome.
Sigismundo was overpowered and was forced to flee, going from living the high life in his palace in Rimini to living outdoors on the run. His bride, Issota came with him, making a pretty picture as a lady-rogue.
I made a perfume which is very popular about the same lady as half of a couple, Isotta and Sigismundo is in the Permanent Perfume section, if you are interested.
Very animalic skin musk, a strong whiff of loam, darkest earthy vetiver from Haiti, crushed black fig.
Deep, dark, and dangerous. Musky, fruity, resinous.
