Battito d’Ali by Profumum Roma
18ml eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Floral Amber
Battito d’Ali, which means “the beating of wings”, is an impossibly soft, ethereal composition with an unobtrusive, extremely comforting tenacity on skin. It implies an elusive fragile quality, like the delicate fluttering of a passing butterfly or maybe that of an angel hovering nearby. There is a beautiful warmth and milky sweetness to this perfume, reminiscent of powdered infants skin. Wear it to feel protected and cherished; wear it because angels are always hiding in the beauty of small things.
No one knows what angels smell like, of course – but the angels of our dreams will now smell like this – dreamy, otherworldly and infinitely comforting.
Scent Profile – Cocoa powder, Myrrh, Orange flowers, Vanilla
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.
