Eccelso by Profumum Roma
18ml eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Woods / Crisp / Citrus Fruity
Eccelso is a divinely elegant scent for gentlemen, with a classic feel. The vibrant opening of sparkling bergamot spiked with nutmeg perfectly paves the way for a creamy, lemon-tinged magnolia. A luxurious base of sensuous musk, Mysore sandalwood, patchouli and labdanum adds layers of warmth and depth. The result is complex and nuanced, with glimmers of smoke and spice playing off the citrus aspect that has been enriched and rounded by the magnolia. This is rich and reassuring, but it also has an easy charm that oozes confidence and a dash of mystery. Truly exceptional.
Olfactive Notes – Bergamot, nutmeg, magnolia, Mysore sandalwood, musk, patchouli, labdanum resin
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.
