Acqua e Zucchero by Profumum Roma
18ml Eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Floral Amber / Fresh / Citrus / Fruity
Acqua e Zucchero is a gentle caress of a fragrance, sweet like melting sugar crystals and airy like a Michelin starred chef’ soufflé. To be sad while wearing such a delectable composition would be a sin and an impossibility: everything, from the fragile orange blossom petals to the sugar spun into glossy meringue and ripe berries folded into vanilla cream, is designed to make you smile. And smile you will, your mind caught for a precious moment in the fleeting beauty of a childhood memory. Imagine – long tables covered in white silks gently billowing in the warm breeze, pitchers of ice cold lemonade, delicate silver jugs filled with fresh cream and large Pavlova cakes lusciously topped with a juicy abundance of tart berries, all set amongst the quivering beauty of bloomed orange trees and unending vistas of blue skies. It feels like a dream, everything luminous and a bit hazy, hours of simple pleasures unfolding with the smoothness of pink satin ribbons.
Scent Profile – Orange Blossom, Vanilla, Wild Berries
Directly from Rome we bring you Profumum Roma, a family owned niche perfume brand that make their scent in oil base. The story begins with Celestino and Lucia Durante who after the Second World War decided to move from a small town called Sant’Elena Sannita to Rome. Coming from a family with a long artisan tradition, they used their skills to open a tiny storefront selling interesting fragrances, hand made soaps and other beauty products. From these humble beginnings the business grew into a chain of shops that quickly became a reference point for luxury personal care in the city.
The skill and craftsmanship were passed on through the generations of the Durante family and in 1996 Celestino and Lucia’s grandchildren expanded the business by creating a line of exclusive fragrances. The Profumum Roma scents are exquisitely crafted to evoke the emotions and memories of their beloved Italy. Inspiration has come from an eclectic mix of Italian motifs including stories of Rome, iconic vacation islands and even a delicious local pastry shop. The resultant scents though seductively layered, are wonderfully simple at heart.
